Not Brentford

Brentford Families - Tagg & Pritchard

My connection with Brentford is through my Father's side of the Family. Thomas and Mary Ann TAGG are my great, great grandparents.

Thomas TAGG and Mary Anne PRITCHARD were married (26 March 1865) in the Parish Church of New Brentford parish. I believe this is the former St. Lawrence Church on Brentford High Street. Their son, William J TAGG, was born in Brentford in about 1866. Thomas and Mary were both born elsewhere and later moved to Ealing so the family's connection with Brentford was quite fleeting.

FFor more information about Thomas and Mary see the Thomas and Mary Ann (née PRICHARD) TAGG page in Wendy Tagg's family history web site.


Research notes

There was a William Pritchard in the 1851 census, a shoemaker in a household of two, so possibly he and his wife, at around no. 114/115 High Street. This was on the south side in New Brentford, a little east of the Market Place (on the north side of the High Street). William was not there in the 1841 or 1861 censuses.

In the 1901 census a Mrs Ann Pritchard, aged 72 and born in Dover, Kent, was living in room 4 of the St George's (or Salutation) Almshouses at no. 6 High Street. She was a 'parochial pensioner'.
