William Pinder and Georgiana Elizabeth Padmore

Cross monuments to William Pinder and Georgiana Elizabeth Padmore, All Saints churchyard, Boyne Hill, Maidenhead Berkshire.

"In Memory of William Pinder Padmore who entered into rest on September 24th 1888 aged 68 - R. I. P. - Jesu Mercy."

" In Memory of Georgiana Elizabeth Padmore who entered into rest November 13th 1891 aged 59 - R. I. P. - Jesu Mercy."

William Pinder Padmore was born in Lichfield Stafford in 1820 to John Padmore and his wife Charlotte Adeline Padmore.  William was Christened on 5th September 1820.

Georgiana Elizabeth Padmore was born Georgiana Elizabeth Grinder in Middlesex London in 1832 to George Grinder, A chemist and druggist, and his wife Marie Agustini Grinder

In 1851, 19 year old Georgiana Elizabeth is living with her parents and siblings Walter, Annette, Edmund and Henrietta at Grove House, Linden Grove, Kensington, London.

On 3rd November 1859 at St James in Westminster, London, William Pinder married Georgiana Elizabeth Grinder.

In 1861 William and Georgiana are living in Mount Street in Westminster, London.  William's occupation is listed as architect and surveyor.  Living with them at the time is Georgiana's bother Walter Grinder.

1871 and William and Georgiana have moved to Bridge Street in Maidenhead, Berkshire.  In 1872 William and Georgiana's only child, Adeline Lucy Padmore is born.  Adeline Lucy Padmore is Christened on 3rd February 1872 at All Saints church in Margaret Street, Marylebone, London.  Interestingly the person that performed the ceremony was Georgiana's brother Walter S Grinder.

I am unable to locate the family on the 1881 Census.

William Pinder Padmore sadly passes away on 24th September 1888

In 1891 Georgiana Elizabeth and Adeline Lucy can be found still living in Bridge Street in Maidenhead, Berkshire.  Georgiana was to pass away seven months later.  Adeline Lucy Padmore moved to Brighton after the death of her parents.  She never married and died there on June 4th 1954, aged eighty four.  She was buried in All Saint's Churchyard along with her parents


  1. That was very interesting. Am I right in assuming you use Ancestor UK? Would you recommend it for research purposes?

    1. Thank you. Yes, I mainly use Ancestry.co.uk and while it can be a fantastic first step, it can be expensive and very frustrating due to many transcription errors.


Thank you for your comment.
