There is an Elizabeth Appleby on the 1851 census on FMP in the Bedale district, Yorkshire aged 30, born 1821 who I think may be sister to the above Appleby baptisms. Could I have another look up for the usual details. Thanks.

Thank you, back to the drawing board!

Hi, I am still looking for Elizabeth Appleby born Kir(k)by Fleetham, Yorkshire 1814/1815 (parents John and Margaret). On the 1841 census above I have now decided that the Agusto and Eliza Appleby listed are probably mine. Augusta dies 1849 so it is Elizabeth I am stuck on. On all the following census she is at Kell House, Pately Bridge although on the 1881 census her DOB is wrong. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Marian, could you clarify what you're actually looking for as you say you have Elizabeth up to the 1881?


Marian Report 20 Dec 2012 23:03

MarieCeleste, I have Elizabeth on all the census apart from 1851 census and would like to know where she was to complete my record for her.


Reggie Report 21 Dec 2012 10:23

Any chance of posting the 1881 for us to look at?

At the moment, we've no firm basis on which to work

You started this thread asking about EMMA..............Elizabeth seems to have materialised from nowhere

Just logged on (at work). I've been to the library whereFMP and Ancestry is free and been through all the 1814/1815/1816 age group but none of them say born Kirby Fleetham (also her age for the 1881 census is wrong), there is one at at York, lady's maid but says born York, Yorkshire, who knows, it may be her. Thank you for your help, I'll keep at it over the holidays.
Best wishes for xmas.

Marian, don't always expect the exact name of where someone was born to be given on a census return, i.e. Kirkby Fleetham.

We sometimes find that if a village or even small town wasn't well known then the nearest town may be used so in this case it could be Bedale, Northallerton, etc


Marian Report 22 Dec 2012 23:27

Hello again, thanks, I'll bear that in mind. :-)
