(8 children born, 5 living, 3 had died)

Edit: A bit odd as there are 6 children on the census.

2 other daughters were written on the census and then crossed out. Probably 2 children who died?

The first one is Elizabeth....possibly age 26. (BLIND)

Just checking out the other one.........I think it is Rose....age 14 (BLIND)

This looks like it may be the parents marriage but you need a birth certificate for one of their children to confirm the mothers maiden name

Hi

Thanks for all the above information last week

I have managed to find John and Elizabeth in 1891 living in Bristol but his birthplace is down as Southampton??? but I am having trouble finding John in 1881!!! There are no Sayers/Sayers that match the date and area born , can anyone help at all? Could it be a spelling mistake??

Thanks

Charlotte

Charlotte Report 30 Aug 2012 13:35

Sorry I have another query as well. I still cannot find them but I have just downloaded the 1911 census and was looking at Elizabeth Sayers that has been crossed out (deceased). Can anyone else read what it says as Birth place?

Big Thanks

Charlotte

Can't make out the first word but the second is Bristol.

1891 image definietly says Southampton but that could be mistranscription between the household schedule and the enumerator's sheet.

Were you able to spot John on the 1881 census at all?

Thanks
