Summary of the family of
Ambrose Folker of London

Descendant chart Descendants names Primary family groups

The first reference to Ambrose is the registration of his marriage to Catherine Barr in 1789 at Holy Trinity, Minories in the City of London. They had
three children, all baptised at St George in the East in Stepney; Ann in 1789, Ambrose in 1792 and John in 1794.

Ambrose was married to Eleanor and they had four children. The family appear to have been destitute in 1817 and became the subject of a Vagrancy Order to be moved from Christchurch to St.Mary, Alderbury in the City of London. Five years later, Ambrose was found guilty of stealing some hemp and was duly sentenced at The Old Bailey to six months in prison.

Nothing more is known at present, but the name Ambrose Folker appears in other family groups, so there may be a connection.
