Caroline Report 11 Nov 2012 18:18

I'm looking for my relatives Frank and Emily Dimmick in the 1881 census particularly, he was born Freshwater 1849 and Emily was born at Arreton about 1852 on the Isle of Wight. Her maiden name was Lane. They had several daughters - Jane Elizabeth and Florence Maud. Maud married George Downer Gatrell and Elizabeth married Herbert Griffin.

Any assistance gratefully received.

That could be them as in a later census Frank is a builders carter. I know they are also related to the Whittington's at Whippingham on the Isle of Wight.

1881 found by Londonbelle is definitely right, says Dimmick on image.

Not sure the address is Wimbledon Villa? Any suggestions as to what it should be? If the name was transcribed incorrectly...

not a good idea to have two postings on the same family Caroline - research likely to be repeated for you
