A large brick wall regarding my Great Grandmother x 2

Elizabeth Fisher born 1812 Blithfield, Staffordshire. In 1834 she marries William Harrison Blore at Blithfield church. Between 1834 and 1836 the couple move to Westminster London where 2 children are born, Sophia in 1836 and William Antil in 1838 (have birth cert).
Then Elizabeth disappears, Cannot find a death, have already ordered 2 death certificates which were not my Elizabeth. In 1841 the children are living with their Grandparents in Derbyshire where they stay until grown up.

Cannot find either parents on the 1841 census, but received a confirmation from the royal archives at Windsor that William started work at Buckingham palace in 1840, they knew nothing about Elizabeth.

In 1845 William remarries, his marriage certificate states he is a widower, and they move to the Isle of Wight. (Osborne House)

Looking at it common sense says that Elizabeth died in Child birth but why no record of a death?

I've searched deaths in Staffordshire and Derbyshire as well as London.

What can I do next?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Helina, could you say which were the two incorrect death certificates just so we avoid offering them as possibles.


Dea Report 4 Mar 2013 08:47

What was William's work at Buckingham Palace?

Do you have him on any census for reference please?

Do you know where or when he was born ?

Thanks for the birth info, Dea.........

I was just trying to identify the records to which Helina referred, and about which MC had asked her


There is no record of a marriage for William Harrison Blore

There is only a death

Deaths Jun 1887 (>99%)
Blore William Harrison 69 Southampton 2c 2


On re-reading, it seems that Helina has not purchased any certs...............

Where born: Calton in Maleydse, Staffordshire, England
Civil parish: Waterfall
Ecclesiastical parish: Waterfall

Though original says unmarried.

This appears to be the Elizabeth Blore that some ancestry trees have wrongly documented as Elizabeth Fisher.

How or where did you find that entry?

I did some research on the 1871 entry for Elizabeth Blore and think her parents where called George and Mary Blore.

Year of registration: 1847
Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Volume no: 3

This falls just before the remarriage, but there are several that fall post his second marriage, most but not all in Derbyshire.

They could have parted and she is living with someone else and taken his name?


helina Report 4 Mar 2013 19:49

Might be worth me ordering another death certificate. Thanks Stuart


helina Report 5 Mar 2013 15:39

Been thinking about it, its unlikely to be Elizabeth as William remarries in 1845.



ChristinaS Report 5 Mar 2013 15:59

Are you sure William remarried in 1845, and not 1847?


Dea Report 5 Mar 2013 16:15

I believe it would be 1847 but we do need confirmation from Helina !!

Dea x


helina Report 5 Mar 2013 17:34

Yes have just checked with the marriage certificate and William and Matilda married on the 27 Nov 1847, not 1845. So that death of Elizabeth Blore could well be my Great Grandmother x 2.

Another certificate needed. Thanks for your help.



helina Report 13 Mar 2013 08:11

Just as well I checked my certificates before ordering the death certificate. I already have it and the Elizabeth who died in 1847 was a widow, her husband had been called John.

So back to square one.
