  • Histories
    The Illegitimate Child
    The Illegitimate Child
    What is believed to have happened.

    William's disappearance from the Law Lists for some years after 20 May 1803 suggests that he was either in gaol, overseas, or went off with his new daughter (and perhaps also her mother) to Hertfordshire to lay low for a while to avoid the scandal of his having an illegitimate child. The Law List was published only about 4 months after his daughter was born on 23 December 1803. So, the child would have been conceived some 9 months previously around 23 March 1803. William, then aged only about 23, might not have known the mother of Celia was "expecting" at the time he put his name down for the list published on 20 May. In other words, the "scandal" of his illegitimate child might not have hit the fan at this time.

    After the passage of a few years and memories had faded somewhat, William returned to London about February 1807 with his daughter Celia from Hertfordshire and placed her in the foster care of Samuel WEBB and his wife Celia. The last mentioned two people were cited as the parents of the child, when she was baptized in London on 3 March 1807. She was then four years old. The child had been born in the town of Elstree or the village of Aldenham, Hertfordshire.

    St Martin in the Fields, Westminster was where Celia Roubel KING, alias WEBB was baptised on 3 March 1807.

    It is my hypothesis that Celia Roubel KING, alias WEBB, was in fact the natural child of a Miss KING and William ROUBEL and was raised by a foster parents named Samuel and Celia WEBB, who are mentioned at her 1807 baptismal ceremony. Alternatively, Celia WEBB, nee KING, could have been the natural mother of the child and had subsequently married Samuel WEBB prior to the christening. The 1871 census records the birthplace of Celia Roubel SMALL as Elstree.
