I did check the image of the 1901 ............ and Eva was what was written.

Although ............... it could just possibly be seen as Ema

definitely not Emma

Age is written as 57


and name of birth place looks like Wormershall, Buckinghamshire .................... which is very close to the Worminghall on the 1891 for Emma ..........................


Possibility?????


enumerator "heard" Emma as Eva??????????????

Quinsgran

Quinsgran Report 28 Feb 2013 07:20

There are

Can you check the census image in 1901 to see if Eva is Emma and if her age is correct We know how these enumerators like obscure ages with their lines

On the 1911 census there is an Emma Collett born 1837 and living in Bicester

Lots of Colletts living there
