1814 Tinman

Did You Know?

  • James Vie was baptised in Rotherhithe, London on 3rd April 1814. His father John Hann Vie was buried in Cerne Abbas, Dorset on 7th June the same year.
  • John Hann Vie and his brother Charles Vie were both Tinmen. (Apparently a Tinman could be a dealer in or worker of tin; John's will clarifies that he was a 'Tin Plate worker'.)
  • When John Hann Vie married Ann Hopper in 1805 his parish of residence was stated to be St George Hanover Square. Years later four of John's brother Charles Vie's children were baptised there. When Charles's youngest child was baptised the family's abode was stated to be Cumberland Market; when Ann made her will in 1842 she was living at 15 Edward Street, Cumberland Market.
