Thanks. Don't know if you can find an Emily Howell; I know she was born around 1810 and married in 1844 again in the same area.

Yes it is the same family you have found in the 1901 census. And then Susannah in the 1911 census. Haven't looked for a marriage of George Howell and Susannah Calver. Thats worth looking for.

Oh bother

Unless he changed from a shoe maker to a butcher then not the same family

Anne Report 8 Mar 2013 19:39

I am looking for some information on George Smith Howell and his wife Susannah. They were born in Suffolk around 1843 and 1846 according to the 1901 census. I can't find any record of their marriage and they don't seem to appear on any earlier census'. I am trying to find some information on their parents.
