  • This is a message for Rachel Morgan. Frank Blackman and Ida Budd were my Great Great Grandparents (on my mothers side). They had a son called Sidney (possibly Herbert Sidney) who was my Nans Father. I would assume Sidney is your Grandfather Williams brother. If you would like to email me I can let you know a little more of what I know. My name is Kevin and myemail is fcwcltd@gmail.com

  • I would be very grateful to have any information regarding Ida Budd and Frank Blackman (b. 03/07/ 1859). They married on 14/09/1890 at East Meon. My grandfather was their son George William Blackman. I believe he had a brother called Frank. My understanding is that Ida’s husband Frank died and she then married Edwin Blackman. My grandfather disapproved of Ida’s second marriage and left East Meon to join the Hampshire Regiment and served in WW1 becoming regimental sergeant major and being awarded the MBE. He subsequently married Alice Mould from Tisbury. It would be wonderful to trace any members of the Blackman family. George William and Alice Mould had 3 sons, Ronald, Kenneth Clifford, and David Lionel. Ron was Leading Writer on RMS Emmaeus and was killed when it was torpedoed by an Italian cruiser in WW2. Ken was on RMS Repulse when she was sank and fought down through Malaya and was on the last ship to leave Singapore. He died in 2014. My father was David Lionel Blackman who served on Rescue Tugs at the end of the war. Dad died in 2016. I hope I am able to make contact with other branches of the Blackman / Budd families. Thank you for reading!

    There is a tremendous amount of detail on the East Meon History website about both the Blackman and Budd families in East Meon. The link for the Blackman family is here;
    https://www.eastmeonhistory.org.uk/google-search?st=blackman

    We have done a great deal of work on the census and church records for the village. I don’t know how knowledgeable you are of Microsoft excel, but I can happily send you the spreadsheet which details everything that I explain below. There are a large number of Blackman and Budd family members in both the church records and the census records for the village. in 1911 there were 92 Blackman family members on the East Meon census. East Meon War Memorial commemorates 21 villagers who lost their lives in WW1, including Henry Herbert Blackman, a first cousin of your great grandfather. The War Memorial commemorates 14 villagers who died in WWII, including 2 members of the Blackman family.

    To answer your specific question about your grandfather:

    George William Blackman was born on 14/06/1891 and baptised on 2/8/1891, East Meon church record #9555. He was the eldest son of Frank & Ida.

    Frank Blackman was baptised on 23/2/1868 in EM Church, son of Benjamin & Elizabeth Blackman (nee Newland). #8995. He was the 9/11 children baptised in the church. His parents were married on 1/11/1851. #1890. His siblings are set out below. Frank Blackman was buried In East Meon 25/2/1902. Age given as 34, so DOB was 1868. #6323.

    Marriage to Ida Budd 14/09/1890. # 2158. He was 22, she was 18. His father was Benjamin Blackman (labourer), her father John Budd (bricklayer). Both from East Meon. Witnesses were Alfred William Pollard (Frank’s brother in law) and Anne Budd (her sister).

    Ida Budd was baptised on 28/4/1872 in EM Church, son of John & Kate Budd (nee Smith). #9139. She was the 4/9 children baptised in the church. Her parents were married on 26/03/1865. #2000 Witnesses were William Budd (her brother) and Sophia Harriet Budd (sister in law). Ida’s siblings set out below.

    In 1901 census, Frank and Ida were living at Ga(r)ston Farm. He was a labourer, and they had 6 sons. Only five were baptised in the church, so I assume that Albert was baptised In Froxfield. I don’t have the Froxfield church records. On the 1891 census they were both in the village, but without children.

    No record of Ida’s remarriage in the church to Frank’s younger brother Edwin. Church records show she had a daughter (Dorothy Ellen Kate,10/12/1903) with no record of the father. She had two more boys in 1907 and 1909, by when she was married to Edwin. The baptism of Edwin Anthony Ashford on 17/3/1910 showed them as living at Garston Farm – but they were not on the 1911 census, so had presumably moved by then.

  • I’m Owen Budd’s grandson. I need to correct the photo “Owen Budd in centre 1914”; he’s actually 4th from left.

  • John Budd (1792) and Charlotte Waller were my great great great great Grandparents via their Son Jeremiah. I believe Jeremiah joined the Marines and lived in Gosport. His son Fred moved to Portsmouth and was the Grandfather of my Grandad Fred. What a great site to stumble upon and thanks for sharing ! For the record, I live just on the edge of the Meon Valley.

  • Interesting articles but am afraid I think there may be some mistakes regarding John Budd and Martha Dicker – the article states that “John was a farm labourer and married Martha Dicker from Ashe, near Basingstoke in 1734” in fact Martha Dicker came from a very wealthy family and her father William Dicker’s will from c1744 is available online. He left thousands of pounds and several properties to his children therefore it is highly unlikely that John Budd her husband was a farm labourer. Martha Dicker and John Budd’s son was James Dicker Budd who owned Court Farm in Overton, inherited from his mother’s family. I think there may be a mix up with another John Budd in the area. There is information available online regarding this family and Court Farm, Overton, Hants.

  • I was searching for information about my late father’s former wife Vera Budd, daughter of Colour Sergeant Crispin Budd DSM, when I found this site. It is a fantastc resourcefor the family and anyone connected to it.

  • I am the great grandson of Hephzibah Budd who married Frederick Garrett. I did some research some years ago but it was not as comprehensive as yours. I was delighted to find this on the Internet this morning. My grandmother was always a bit reluctant to talk about our history and as it appears that her husband was illegitimate, I now know why. Many thanks Roy Garrett-Budd

  • I am looking into my family from east meon. I am a descendant of John Budd and Charlotte Waller.

  • My Grandfather was Percy William Budd who came from East Meon/Froxfield. His Parents Emma and George Budd lived at Lower Bordean Farm at some time. My great uncle Cecil George Budd was killed in France in WW1 and is honoured on the Steep war memorial and in the church
    I was really interested to see these Budd photographs and would like to know if anyone has any photographs of Cecil George Budd he was born in Froxfield in 1888
    Thank you

  • Edith Budd married Fred Hutty. Fred Hutty was my Great Grandfather. It was interesting to say the least to come across the photograph of the wedding group. There are five of the men in Royal Marines uniform. Fred was in the RM band based in Eastney Barracks, Gosport. This tradition carried on when all his sons including my Grandfather Frederick Percy, were all in the RM band.

  • I am a descendant of the Budd family, Frank Budd 1850 to 1920 is my 2nd Great Grandfather his daughter married a Spiers also from East Meon. I have photos of Frank and Ann Budd which I will add. We knew Frank as Alfred.

  • I have only just discovered this book.
    I am descended from John Budd who married Martha Dicker.
    I never added John Budd’s father Anthony to my Tree when I found it, because I could not prove it.
    He certainly is added now.
    John and Martha’s descendant was James Dicker Budd, and he was my g.g.g.Grandfather.
    And there are descendants to this day in Portugal.
    But that’s another Chapter.

    By Joan Harrison (11/11/2014)
  • Alan – my thanks for your great work on the Budd family. I too am a descendent of William and Sophia Harriet Budd as they are my Great Great Grandparents. Their daughter, Edith Priscilla, married Fred Hutty and their son, Cecil George Hutty was my mother’s father. Amazingly, just 8 years ago and with no knowledge of my links to the area, my wife and I moved to Droxford, just a few miles down the Meon valley! My mother, who is now in her 80’s, will love to see the photos of her Great Grandparents!
