Elizabeth Ann Hudson of Norwich

KeithC Report 7 Feb 2013 15:05

I would like to find out where Elizabeth Ann Hudson was in 1871.
She was born in 1857 to Nicholas Hudson (a Miller) and Louisa Pamment, and was in the 1861 census for Philadelphia in Norwich, Norfolk aged 4. I haven't found anything else about her until she was married in 1876 in Leeds to Tom Webster.
Did she run away from home? On the marriage register her father's occupation is shown as a Labourer! Was this a dig at him?
Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

The likelihood is that she away from home was her sister in 1871

Thanks Reggie, I've tried to find her all over the country in the 1871 census but no luck so far.
