I can't see them after this either. Possible they emigrated of course!

There is this, but she is recorded as single, and in view of location it seems unlikely, although I can't see her on a previous census. The birthplace does come under Ipswich:

Crossed posts there Jonesey! I wonder if it is her you know. I suppose what we need is to locate the above Georgiana prior to this - if we can't then it looks promising.

Also trying to find Georgiannas sister Eliza Levett b.1877 from Ely Cambridgeshire. Her father was Benjamin Ford. Benjamin married Louisa Topping when Eliza's mother died. When Benjamin died in 1886 Louisa went on to marry William Barnes. I have found her all the way up to 1901 but her name changed to Watson with no marriage to a Watson?? Also she has a daughter by the name of Lily Long and Beatrice Watson. Slightly confused by this?? Can you help with this please. here they are in 1881

there does seem to be 2 Eliza Longs with one child called Lilly C Long and another called Lilly long but in different places in 1901

EllenS

EllenS Report 2 Apr 2013 12:48

I am really confused now. So Louisa had a daughter called Elizabeth Long?

EllenS

EllenS Report 2 Apr 2013 12:56

This is the info I have on Eliza and that is why I am slightly confused

Benjamin went on to marry Louisa Topping in 1878.
In the 1881 cencus Benjamin appears with his new wife and also a son called Ernest (aged 7, born "Wandsworth, Cambs" - I don't know whether this should be Wandsworth, London, or Wentworth, Cambs) and a daughter Eliza (aged 4, born Ely). These two children were probably Esther's, though they might conceivably have been Louisa's. I can'rt find a birth registration for either of them, under the surnames of FORD or TOPPING!

Chris Ho :)

Chris Ho :) Report 2 Apr 2013 12:56

Could be, but that's where Certs., are needed.

Have you got the Birth Reg. for Eliza?...
