  • Notes 
      1. British Censuses:
      1841: Woolwich, Borough of Greenwich, Kent, England, Mulgrave Place No. 4, FHL film 306884:
      Cornelius Osborne, 27, Cordwainer, not born in county.
      Harriett, 29, not born in county.
      Edward, 3, not born in county.
      George, 1, born in county.

      1851: Plumstead, Kent, England at address: #57 The Slade [copy on file], FHL film 174827:
      Cornelius Osburn, 37 laborer dockyard, b. Arlington, Sussex.
      Harriet, wife, 41,
      James T., son, 14, Lab. R. Arsenal, b. Boxley, Kent.
      Edward L., son, 13, Cordwainer, Shoreditch, Middlesex.
      George F., son, 11, scholar, Orpington, Kent.
      Samson D., son, 9, scholar, Woolwich, Kent.
      Mary Ann, dau., 7, scholar, Woolwich, Kent.
      Cornelius, son, 3, Woolwich, Kent.

      1871 Eng: Swanscombe, Kent. p. 49 of 77:
      Edward Osborne, 32, cordwainer, born Kent, Woolwich.
      Sarah Ann, 33, wife, born Kent, Woolwich.
      Cornelius, 5, son, born Surrey, Croyden.
      An unnamed daughter 3 days, born Kent, Swanscombe.

      2. In the 11 Jan 1901 obituary of his father Cornelius Osborne in Ogden, Utah, it is noted that he is leaving four sons and one daughter. Unsure who the fourth living son may be; three for sure are George, Cornelius, and Lamberth. This individual does not appear to be the fourth since his wife shows as a widow in the 1891 English census.

      3. Chris Petersen on 11 Sep 1975 checked LDS Patriarchal Blessing Index without finding any Osbornes.

      4. Email from Val Bray [] 30 Jul 2006: Edward Osborne married Sarah Ann Batt on 29 Mar 1862 at St. Thomas Woolwich. His father is Cornelius, her father George Batt. In the census for 1871 at Swanscombe, Kent is Edward Osborne 32, cordwainer, Sarah Ann 33 wife, Cornelius 5 son and an unnamed daughter 3 days. The census for 1891at Stone, Kent, is Sarah Osborne 48 widow b. Woolwich Kent, Cornelius 25 son b. Croydon Surrey, Samson 15 son b. Swanscombe, Kent, William Batt 15 nephew b. Woolwich Kent, Charles Batt 13 nephew b. Woolwich Kent.

      5. There is an Edward Osborne that shows up in the 1880 US census for the 20th Ward of Salt Lake City born 1840 in England with occupation of carpenter, a wife named Annie age 36 of England, and a daughter named Annie age 12 of England. Same Edward shows up at online Utah State Burials Index b. 1840 and d. 1890. No further information is given and from other information we have on our Edward, we can be sure Edward in SLC is not related. It appears this same Edward could be the same Edward/Ann/Ann who is shown below:

      6. Email from: Val Bray [] October 05, 2006:
      "In your notes you say your Edward Osborne died after 1879. In the census of 1891 Sarah Ann is a widow. The only death I can find is 17 Jan 1886. It shows Edward 48 years, a shoemaker but the widow is K. J. Osborne. Do you think this is yours ? The 1871 census shows Edward and Sarah with a new born daughter. This is Alice Maria who died after a few weeks. I can't find Edward and Sarah in the 1881 census (maybe a different spelling ?) but there is a Cornelius Osborne aged 15, born in Woolwich on a training ship across the river in Essex. He is listed as Cornelius Osborne, pauper, scholar. The "Exmouth" with other ships known as the Thames Training Ships provided boys from all London's Poor Law authorities with training to help equp them to enter the Royal or Merchant Navy. The scheme proved highly successful. The Exmouth was put into service in 1877 and moored off Grays in Essex. Boys were able to join the ship at age 12. Their first task ws to learn how to mend and patch their own clothes. They also had to learn how to wash their clothes, and keep their lockers and contents in good order. Each boy had his own hammock which was stowed during the day, leaving the decks clear of bedding. As well as learning the skills of sailing, rowing, sail and rope-making, gunnery, and signalling, they continued ordinary school work, and other physical activities such as swimming and gymnastics. The ship had its own band and bugle-band.

Entry no. 37: Edward Osborne, 42, M, High H Hor??? Old Bexley, 27-6-37 London, 22-6-79, Woolwich, J. Loveday, A. Vallis. [Kerry's note: appears birth was the first set of dates and the second set of dates and names may be baptism with persons who did baptism and confirmation - subject to reconfirmation.]

      2. Copy on file of LDS Church record from England; photocopy made by Chris Petersen but source, date, branch, and column headings not given. Entry no. 178: "Edward Osbourne, 16, S, Plumstead Common, 27-6-37, London, Middlesex, Engl'd, 19-4-55, Woolwich, Priest Payne, Eld. Gillman, 25-1-54, cut off."

      3. Edward Lamberth Osborne was cut off from the Church on 25 Jan 1854. First baptized 19 Apr 1853.

      1. Birth Certificate from General Register office in England.

      2. Handwritten note on the back of a commercial advertising letter dated 1895 [on file], source unknown but appears to be a child of Cornelius and Harriet Osborne:
      "Edward Lamberth, borned June 27/37
      George F., October 29/39
      Sampson D. Jany 2/42
      Mary A., March 27/44
      Cornelius, May 27/47
      Lambeth, Jany 4/53
      Dad, Aug 11/13 Arlington, Sussex
      Mother, Decr 25, 1809 Crayford, Kent
      Thomas Burnhope Feb. 22, 1845"

      1. Per marriage certificate copy from the General Register Office on file with me:
      "1862, Marriage solemnized at the Parish Church in the new Parish of St. Thomas Woolwich in the County of Kent, No. 123, 29 Mar 1862, Edward Osborne, age 24, bachelor, boot and shoe maker, father Cornelius Osborne, boilermaker to Sarah Ann Batt, 25, spinster, father George Batt, blacksmith, both groom and bride residing at St. Thomas Woolwich. Edward signs with a mark and Sarah signs her name.

      1. Death certificate from the General Register Office on file with me: "Greenwich East, Kent, England, no. 328, Edward Osborne, d. 20 Jan 1886 at 9 Vale Cottages, male, 48 years old, shoemaker, Asthma, reported by K.F. Osborne, widow of deceased present at death living at 9 Vale Cottages Woodland Street." The name, age, and occupation are all identical but the widow's initials make no sense. Not sure if this is the correct Osborne or not.
