1881 can be accessed on the LDS site

Do you have reason to think she would have been alive in 1881?

Thank you patchem, Flip and Reggie, that seems to prove the relationship I am looking for.
Unfortunately the 1871 census on GR does not include place of birth and is therefore is slightly inconclusive - why I tried the 1881.
In the later census, after she is married, everything is fine. I think it is always the big leap from single to married that is essential to try and prove.

Frances, the original images of the 1871 do show birthplaces and occupations but this detail is omitted from the transcription (don't know why). In this particular case her birthplace on 1871 is shown as Liverpool and her father John was a joiner.

Thanks choccy, you sneeked in whilst I was typing!

Are the Davies sharing the house with the Griffiths?
