Did You Know?

  • I initially ignored the 1832 Dorset burial as a record for Charles Vie as I had no evidence for him living outside London. When I actually looked at the record I discovered that it gave the deceased's abode as London. I then found that although Charles's son Thomas Henry Vie was baptised in London, according to census entries he was born in Crewkerne, Somerset, where Charles was living when he joined the Freemasons in 1818.
  • 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.
  • Charles Vie was buried in Minterne Magna, Dorset, on 11 February 1832. Exactly a month later his young daughter Emma Elizabeth Vie was buried in Chelsea.
