Laura Mizen was a witness at Frances's wedding - and I've just found the same family Charles/Eliza Mizen in 1881 with daughter Annie (Ann Marie) - I'll find it again and post the details.

Flip thats the one I have just been looking at.

It says on her marriage her father was a Chalres Mizen Farm Bailiff. I can only find him as a cowman etc.


Andrew Report 2 Feb 2013 16:05

I've got several examples of where fathers occupations have been 'promoted' on marriage certs. eg Ag Lab to Framer. Big jump from Cowman to Bailiff, but I wouldn't rule it out.

Well it certainly sounds better, maybe our ancestors were just as snobbish as we can be! The family does look likely for Annie & Laura.
