    6th Aug 1841 Dinah Anne Bainbridge married William Davey at the parish church in Loughton, Cambridge. Her father Robert Bainbridge was there (no profession mentioned), and her residence at the time of marriage was Loughton. Witnesses were Isabella Chapman late Davey, and Elizabeth Bainbridge. William Davey's father - also called William - is described as a Servant.

  • Notes 
    • Dinah was born in London and married her first husband, William Davey aged around 21. She had 4 children by him while living in Cambridgeshire before she was widowed aged 30. She must have had some family money because she was recorded as being an 'annuitant' in the 1851 census.
      She then must have moved to London where she met Francesco and they had 3 children out of wedlock before marrying in 1859, when she was about 39.
      Francesco was a wealthy businessman, who had rebelled the conservative catholic nature of his family in Genoa which is why it is not so surprising that they had an unconventional co-habitation before marriage. Dinah and Francesco lived in a large family house in south London, with Dinah no doubt staying at home raising her 8 children, until her untimely death in 1865, aged about 45, when her dress caught fire at a party, according to her great grandson.

      ++++++++++++++

      1841 Dinah married William Davey in Caxton, Cambridgeshire. They had 4 children before William died. There is a record for a William Davey dying in Louth, Cambs. in Jan-Mar 1850 which corresponds to where Dinah was living as a widow in 1851.
      As you can see from the photo of the certificate above, one of the witnesses was Elizabeth Bainbridge - could she have been Dinah's mother? So far no clue has been found as to her mothers name.

      1851 census
      Dinah was recorded as Daniela Ann Davey, a widow aged 29, occupation 'annuitant' (so independantly wealthy perhaps), born London.
      with her were her 3 daughters and a son, the youngest only 1 so her husband must have recently died. 3 of the children were born in Barrington, Cambs. The family were living in Louth, Linconshire.
      Isabella 7, William 5, Lucy 4, Francis 1.

      Marriage Record 1859:
      Francesco Manuel Antonini married Dinah Anne Davey on April 27th 1859, he is a batchelor and Gentleman living in Holloway, she is a Widow living on Balls Pond Rd [Hackney]. They got married at St John's Church, Upper Holloway. Francesco's father is Jerome Antonini, Gentleman, and Dinah's is Robert Bainbridge, Gentleman.

      (This is 3 years after Emily is born so she was born out of wedlock)

      1861 Census:
      Antonini family live in Prospect House, Surbiton Crescent, Kingston Surrey
      Francis M Antonini is aged 55, landholder, born in Italy.
      Dinah A Antonini is aged 41, born London
      Matilda Antonini aged 7, born London
      Emily Antonini aged 5, born London
      Rose Antonini aged 3, born London
      Francis M Antonini aged 6 months, born London
      There are also 3 older stepdaughters and a stepson with the surname Davey: Isabella Davey, stepdaughter age 17; William Davey, stepson age 15; Lucy Davey, stepdaughter age 13.
      And 8 domestic servants (!); cook, upper nurse, under nurse, upper housemaid, under housemaid, laundry maid, kitchen maid, housekeeper (?).
      So Francis Antonini must have been rich

      +++++++

      Death record 1865, Kingston, London.
      According to her grandson Kenneth Beaumont's family notes, Dinah died when her dress caught fire at a party (!).
