George Butcher Twynam; Split from Introduce Yourself

Hello - my name is Andrew TWYNAM - so I suppose strictly I don't belong here - but family research took me to the parish records of All Saints Lambeth where the baptisms of some of my relations took place. Somehow in the transcription from register to computer record the name has been misspelt to TWYMAN - something we TWYNAMs get used to but makes family research that much more complicated.



EDIT - if anyone should happen to know the maiden name of the wife of George Butcher Twynam (spelt TWYMAN on the Lambeth registers) I would be eternally grateful

Hi Andrew. Sorry I've not got back to you sooner...been a hectic few days. I've noticed the spelling issues between Twyman and Twynam quite a bit (it happens an awful lot as handwriting can be indistinct at times, and a person's accent can easily change things if the person writing it down mishears), and have wondered if with the Hampshire Twymans at least if the two share a common root. No proof as yet, but I am considering expanding my One-Name Study out to encompass Twynam as well given the obvious cross-over between the two names.

As far as the George Butcher Twyman/Twynam you mention, I've got him down in my files as having married Mary Ann Burt in the March Quarter of 1890 in the Islington District of London. Not sure if this is her maiden name, though, or if she's been married before marrying George, as I don't have the full certificate and haven't found the marriage in the parish registers on Ancestry as yet. If you'd like to email me at twyman@one-name.org I'd be more than happy to correspond with you further about George Butcher & his family. :) Would certainly help me clear things up, as I've no doubt go a few Twynams masquerading as Twymans in my files. :)
