Hi, Sidney Fry was born in Banwell Somerset in 1856. He married Elizabeth Coles in 1880. Elizabeth died in 1888. What happened to Sidney? He was an ag lab. He did have relations in Wales. No sign of any death. Did he change his name? Can anyone help please. cheers Rosemary NZ

Hi, Gosh you are quick.
The last census is 1881, he and Elizabeth had Chales.
Charles born 1877, Kate 1889
Mabel 1881
Ella Mary 1882 (went to live in Wales)
Alfred Leonard 1885
Will have to go and find the death cert of Elizabeth, but it was not her husband that was there at the death. cheers Rosemary nz

Hi have found the children at relations after the 1881 census. Charles seems to have gone somewhere? But was a witness when Kate was married in 1910 in Wales. No sign of her father then either. 14th Sept 1910 Fathers name down but not deceased and no profession. Charles and Mabel were witnesses. The marriage was held at Llangadock County of Carmarthen.

Elizabeth Coles was the mother of both Kate and Charles but she did not marry Sidney until 1880. But he was the father on Kates birth cert. cheers R NZ

Found it!
Elizabeth Fry died on 13.2.1888 at Banwell, Somerset. aged 32 Wife of Sidney Fry General Labourer. A Clara Harris was present at death (of Banwell). Registered on the 16.2.1888. So Sidney must have still be alive in 1888? cheers R NZ
