Hi Kucinta
Thank you so much for the Marriage Certificate of John Mitchell and Jane Allington
I did not expect you to do that for me but it is great to add to the family history.

Thank you
Best wishes

Your thanks are more than enough recompense for me, and I'm sure the same goes for everyone else who has enjoyed helping on your thread.

Hello Kucinta
Thank you for taking the time to find Emma Allington that is a surprise I never thought of that happening .
I wish there was something I could do to thank you all for the information you have found for me.
Best wishes

I wondered what had happened to Emma Allington in 1871, as she wasn't with her 'Harrington' sisters and father.

Seems she was taken in by another family.

Christina deseves all the kudos for that 1871 census find - that was brilliant!

Given that Emma was born in Northampton c1865, and Prickly Holly's death for Mary A Allington isn't until 1867, it looks like Emma is Mary Ann's daughter and a full sister o Louisa and Jane.

Louisa Mitchell<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Harry Septimus Long

Henry and Louisa do give different addresses, whether for propriety's sake, or because she isn't the same Louisa as he was with in 1871 I don't know.

EDIT: Looking at census 1881 in next post, it looks like the Philips marriage in 1888 is correct, so Henry just took his own sweet time getting round to making an 'honest woman' of Louisa.

I think that census 1871 was an excellent find on Christina's part.


Kucinta Report 25 Mar 2013 22:00

As per Christina - Henry has been dittoed Ireland from the person above, could it have been a mistake? Dates for Louisa and Jane fit, though Henry has lost a few years. Henry has the right occupation.

I had the same problem finding the Allington girls (Jane and Louisa) together (with or without parents) in 1871.

Not too worried about lack of birth for Jane, as not all births got registered at that time, even though they were meant to be.

I suppose there's always the chance Mary A brought Jane into the marriage, though she does give Henry Allington bootmaker as her father on the marriage register, as does Louisa.
