 Descendants of William & Maria Marckrow/Markcrow/Markerow/Marcrow
William Markcrow was a journeyman boat builder according to the marriage certificate of his son William Isaac and was deceased in 1854.  I have not been able to find when Wm died however I think it may have been before 1841 as Maria was the head of the household in the census with her son Henry Charles and his wife and family living at 20 Belle Vue Street Ramsgate.
 In 1851 Maria is still living at that address, with her granddaughter Sarah, and is noted as a Lodging House Keeper and was from Margate in the Isle of Thanet, Kent.   Maria died on 2nd May 1857 at 9 Georges Place Ramsgate aged 74.  Her son Wm was the informant at her death.  Maria must have been ailing for some time as William travelled down from Hull to be with her, she died of natural decay.

For information about Hull 
In 1841 the family were residing at Harbour St Ramsgate, Kent with William noted as a Publican.  It is believed that William Isaac and Ann moved to Hull in about 1843 and in 1849 were living at 42 Kingston Street Hull where Ann died on August 14th of Cholera .  In 1851 at the time of the census (30th March) William is noted as a Fishing Smack Owner and Basket Maker, had living with him 3 of his children Edward Wm 15 (Basket makers apprentice), Emma 18,  and Louisa 13 (scholar) together with a house servant and 5 fisherman's apprentices.  On April 1st 1854, William married by license in the Church of St James's to Fanny Shapley, with Emma as one of the witnesses.  Fanny was the widow of John Shapley and the daughter of Abraham HODGE (Grocer).  William's father is noted as being deceased. 
Following the marriage and prior to 2nd May 1857 (his mother Maria's death) William and Fanny moved to 15 Waverley St Hull were he lived until his tragic death at age 65 in 1867.    William was the owner of at least 3 fishing smacks one of which the Edward & Sophie ON12711 built 1840 in Rye sank off Holland on 4th May 1864.
“A History of Hull” Chapter 23. and London Times article dated Oct. 6 1863 regarding trawl and line fishing mention Wm
 “The Times”  reported that William Isaac Markcrow gave a statement at the inquiry into “the state of the British Fisheries”, at Hull. And is referred to as one of the largest smack-owners at Hull and relating that in 1843 there was only one fishing smack sailing out of Hull. Increasing over the following 20 years to no fewer than 300.   Refer to the paper on  ' The Development of the Hull Trawling Trade in the Sailing Era' article refers to Isaac Markcrow
Details of William's death appear in "The Hull News" of April 6th 1867 under the caption "FATAL ACCIDENT TO A SMACK OWNER - On Wednesday night, about seven o'clock. Wm Isaac Markcrow, fishing smack owner, was proceeding down Engine-street in his cart, when he suddenly drew up his horse to allow a vehicle to pass. In doing so his horse fell, and Mr Markcrow was thrown out of his cart and seriously injured. He died on the following day."  His death certificate states that death was due to Heart disease accelerated by an accidental fall. Lived 19 hours.

Fanny was born in 1801 in Exeter, Devon and survived William for a number of years and in the 1871 census is noted as living at 231 Freeman St Grimsby Lincolnshire, with her 10 year old grandson William Isaac Bonney, who it would appear was orphaned at age 3, following his mother Louisa's death.   Fanny died in 1875 and Wm Bonney moved to Australia.   (We would like to know when and with whom, so if you know please contact us)
In following the various members of the family through the years via the census it becomes apparent that William Isaac was well loved, as at least three of his children named sons after him.

James and Ann  (photo of J I Markcrow II)    were living in 14 Frazier St, Lambeth, London at the time of the 1851 census, March 30th and he was noted as a Labourer.  In September the following year at the time of the birth of his son James Isaac junior he was a policeman living at 10 Clarkes Building  Bloomsbury London.  By August 1855 the family now consisting of James, Ann and two sons James Isaac and William Isaac had moved to Hull where another five children were to be born.  Fanny was born in 1855 and 11 months later on 31st August 1856 died of diarrhoea just 8 weeks after the birth of Frederick on 6th July.  What a terribly traumatic time for both parents.  On 19th December 1857 another daughter was born named Frances who was to be known in the family as Fanny.       
By the time of the 1861 census (April 7th), James and a heavily pregnant Ann were living at 12 Kingston St Myton Hull and he was a fishing smack owner employing 8 men and 12 boys, on May 15th their last child, Florence was born.   
On November 12th 1862 James was judged bankrupt, the proceedings went on for at least two years, during which time James appeared before Mr Justice Mellor on December 18th 1863 in the Midland Circuit Court at York "charged, under the provision of the Bankruptcy Act, 1861, that he, having been adjudicated a bankrupt, afterwards, with intent to defraud and defeat the rights of his creditors and to conceal the state of his affairs, parted with and destroyed certain papers, writings and documents" extract.

London Gazette Issue 22692 dated December 12 1862 page 37.doc
 & 1864 London Gazette   I wonder did James surrender himself on June 15th 1864 or did he do a runner.   If he did surrender himself, then he must of served a rather short prison term as he was on the ship to Australia January 1865.
The following appeared on Page 142 of the Illustrated London News of  February 11th 1865
"The ship Landsborough, 1166 tons burden, belonging to Messrs. Tike, Thackay, and Co., sailed on the 12th ult. from Gravesend, and 23rd from Plymouth, for Queensland; Captain Maxwell, commander; Surgeon-Superintendent, Dr. F. H. Scott; assisted by Mrs. Edwards, matron. The Landsborough is the forty-ninth vessel that has sailed on the land order system of emigration, under the immediate direction of the Queensland Government. She contains 317 souls, divided into paying, assisted, and free passengers, and consisting of 146 members of families, 116 single men, and 61 single females. "  One of those families was that of James and Ann Macrow as spelt on the ships manifest.
The ‘Landsborough’ arrived at and anchored in Keppel Bay, QLD on 6th May 1865, after a voyage of 103 days.   There had been no deaths or serious casualty on board. However "during the voyage about 800 cases of illness had occurred; amongst which Bronchitis, Pneumonia, Diarrhoea, and Rhuematism, were amongst the most serious, but readily yielded to medical treatment.".
 The passengers were to remain on board until Monday 8th May when arrangements were made for their transhipment on board the steamers "Boomerang" and "Yaamba" to Rockhampton which is situated on the Fitzroy River 38 mile or 60 klms upstream from its mouth on Keppel Bay .  (
The town was laid out in 1858 on Gracemere Station and its name chosen in reference to rock formations in the river and to Hampton, Eng. Proclaimed a municipality in 1860.) The single women were taken off first via the steamer "Boomerang" which docked at Rockhampton at 3pm. Whilst the remaining passengers did not arrive at the dock until 10 p.m. that night.  With the children ranging in age from James 12 down to Florence 1 week short of her 4th birthday, what a nightmare Ann must have endured that day and night.  I wonder where they stayed that night, when did they eat dinner, how long did it take to tranship?  What household goods or furniture did they bring, if any?

During the voyage  the children would have attended the school which was conducted from February 6 to April 1 on deck, weather permitting.  Included in the "Report of the Schoolmaster" is a list of participants who were awarded prizes for attention to study, good behaviour or assisting in instruction of the single girls.  William Marcrow was amongst fourteen pupils who were awarded a prize, his being "Third Book and Holy Bible" for Good Behaviour.

    Descendants of James Larkin Markcrow

    Generation No. 1

    1.  JAMES LARKIN2 MARKCROW  (WILLIAM1 MARCKROW) was born November 1803 in Queenborough, Isle of Sheppey, Kent, and died 21 June 1871 in 89 King Street Ramsgate.  He married (1) SARAH KING 7 June 1833.  She was born Abt. 1806 in Ramsgate Kent England 1851 census, and died Bet. 1843 - 1851.  He married (2) MARTHA BING 1853 in Elham, Kent 1st Qtr Vol 2a pg 871.  She was born 1816 in St Lawrence, and died 1900 in Canterbury.


    James Larkin Markcrow was born in Queenborough, Isle of Sheppey, Kent in 1804 to William and Maria Markcrow.  James married widow Sarah Kersey nee King on 7 June 1833.  In the 1839 Pigot & Co's Commercial Directory for Kent on page 111 under Taverns & Public Houses, is the following entry "Bell", James Larkins Markcrow, 55 King St. Ramsgate. The previous licensee was William Kersey possibly the first husband of James' wife Sarah.

    The 1841 Census of June 6th notes that James is living in King Street Ramsgate with his first wife Sarah Kersey (King) with them were Sarah's two daughters from first marriage, Sarah aged 14 and Susannah aged 12 together with their three daughters Georgiana 7, Eliza Jane 3, and Frances Elizabeth 1.  James' occupation is Victualler or Inn Keeper.  Their eldest daughter Matilda Maria is believed to have died in 1849 aged 14, although she is not on the 1841 census.

    I believe Sarah died in 1851(Mar Qtr vol 5 p357) prior to the census as James is shown as a widower, his daughters Georgiana 17, Eliza J 13 and Frances 10, together with son in law George Sewell the husband of stepdaughter Susannah 22 and their 1 month old son George junior.  James' occupation is Victualler, the address was given as Bell Inn, King St Ramsgate.  James was noted as being born in Queenborough, Kent.

    In 1853 James married Martha BING they had a daughter Emily Kate b 1854

    James continued as licensee of the Bell Inn until his death in 1871, at the time of the 1861 census James, wife Martha and his four daughters Georgiana 27, Eliza 23, Frances 21, and Emily 7 were living at the Inn.  Eliza married William Maxted in 1865 and moved to Saffron Walden in Essex 35 miles north of London.  In 1868 Georgiana married widower John Steer and moved to Southwood Terrace St Laurence, where they were living in 1871.

    In 1881 James' widow Martha and daughter Emily had moved to 20 Nunnery Fields, St Mary Bredin, Canterbury.  Frances was living at 35 Albert St Ramsgate with the Duff family as a lodger.

    The 1891 census shows Frances, who never married, was a patient at the Seamen's Infirmary 69 West Cliff Rd Ramsgate.  Her death was registered in Jun Qtr 1891.  Martha and Emily had moved to 13 Old Dover Road, St Mary Bredin, Canterbury.

    James Larkins Markcrow died on June 21st 1871 aged 67 years of Cystitis and Asthenia. (1)Inflammation of bladder 2)Weakness. May be a euphemism for pulmonary tuberculosis).  His death was certified.   Mary A Wood aged 50, (widow) of 93 King Street was present at his death, she was a laundress and lived 2 doors down from the Inn.  Mary was the informant at the registration of James' death.  Perhaps the rest of the family were away visiting.

    Number 89 King Street Ramsgate still has today "Bell" visible on the building.

    Descendants of Henry Charles Markerow
     Generation No. 1

    1.  HENRY CHARLES2 MARKEROW  (WILLIAM1 MARCKROW) was born 1815 in Margate, Kent, and died 1871 in Isle of Thanet, Kent Vol 2a 476.  He married MATILDA BROWN 17 February 1838 in Sandwich, Kent, England.  She was born 1815 in Islworth, Middlesex, and died 1905 in Camberwell, London 3rd Qtr.


    Henry Charles Markerow was born in 1815 in Margate Kent, at the time of the 1841 census he was living with his mother Maria at Belle Vue Hill Road Ramsgate along with his wife Matilda and their two sons William and Henry and their 14 y.o. niece Sarah.  Henry was a Carpenter and his mother was a Green Grocer.  All except Matilda were noted as being born in Kent. (Source HO 107/469/3 pg 15.)

     In 1851 Henry and family comprising wife Matilda, son William 12, daughters Rosetta 9, Emely 7, Blanche 3 and Ada 1 were living in Camden Road St Georges Ramsgate.  According to the census of 30 March 1851 Henry was a builder employing 18 men and 4 boys.  They had a servant, 15 y.o. Jane Hodges.  There is an entry in FreeBDM for the death of a Henry Markerow for the Jun Qtr of 1846 Vol 5 p 335.  As there is no further mention in the following censuses it would appear that this is the 6 y.o. son of Henry and Matilda.  There is also a death entry for Emely Sep 1859 Vol 2a p 457 both in the Thanet registration district.

     According to the 1861 census of April 7, Henry and Matilda have are running Kent Brewery at 3 Camden Road, Ramsgate and is noted as being a Master Brewer employing 2 men.  Their son William is noted as a Brewer, whilst his siblings Rosetta, Blanche & Ada plus brother Ernest 8 are scholars.

     In 1871 the Brewery has changed names to Markcrow's Brewery and is between nos 7 & 5 Camden Rd next to the Maidstone Arms and Henry is now a retired brewer, William is away visiting his sister Rosetta, who had married William ROBINSON and their family.  Rosetta was living at the Goldsmiths Hall in London as her husband William was the assistant to the Deputy Warden, a position he was later to hold.  Rosetta had 3 sons Ada was visiting her Aunt Eliza West and cousin Georgiana Markcrow who lived in Finsbury.   Ernest was a carpenter and together with Blanche were at home at the time of the census. 

    Henry died later that year and his son Ernest died the following year.

     Sometime following Henry's death and prior to 1881 census, Matilda, Ada and William moved to Camberwell in London, probably to be closer to Rosetta and the grandchildren.  William also changed his profession to that of an Insurance Agent and they were living at 2 Chourmet Terrace Chourmet Road Camberwell.  It is believed that William died aged 48 in the Guildford registration district June 1887 Vo. 2a p38.

     On the night of the 1891 census, April 5, Matilda and Ada were visiting the Barton family of Peckham rye Camberwell therefore it is not known where they were residing.

     On March 31 1901 Matilda and Ada occupied two rooms at 28 Tyrrell Road Camberwell and were living on their own means.  Matilda was 89 and Ada 51.  Matilda died in Camberwell aged 94 Sept Qtr 1905 Vol 1d p 439.  At present I don't know when Ada died or whether she married, the same applies to her sister Blanche.

     Rosetta had 3 sons Herbert William, Sidney Charles and Walter Lawrence. Herbert and Sidney followed their fathers profession and became Assayers and together with their mother were still living at Goldsmiths Hall in 1901.  It is not known what happened to Walter and if any of the sons married and had children. 

     So of the eight children Henry and Matilda had I know of only one marrying and having children, all the sons died without issue hence this line of the Markcrow name died out.

    Children of HENRY MARKEROW and MATILDA BROWN are:

                       i.       WILLIAM3 MARKCROW, b. Abt. 1838, St Georges, Ramsgate; d. Unknown.
