I think now looking at it eleanor is nellie they have just shorten her name by the looks of it thanks but did susannah marry Bigwood i search on here and ancestry but couldnt find anything thanks for all your help :-)


rootgatherer Report 29 Apr 2012 20:45

This looks like the child that died as he doesn't appear on any census with the family.

Name: John Joseph Fridgen
Record Type: Baptism
Estimated Birth Date: 26 Sep 1888
Baptism Date: 3 Aug 1889
Father's Name: John Fridgen (Occ. Stationer)
Mother's Name: Mary Ann Fridgen
Parish or Poor Law Union: Hoxton St John
Borough: Hackney
Register Type: Parish Registers

Deaths Sep 1889 Fridgen John Joseph 0 Shoreditch 1c 69

So Susannah must have been alive in 1911.
