I would be grateful if you could help me to find Elizabeth Mortimore's b.1849 Croydon Surrey parents as have no idea. She married John Wild Ott b.1835 Walworth in J/A/S 1874 Croydon Surrey. I have been trying to find her parents for years but to no avail. It is possible that the Mortimore's come from Devon.
Thank you

Effie Lewis (nee Ott)

Do you have them on any census after they married?

Maybe you need to purchase the marriage cert to see if she names a father

There's this one:

There's also an Elizabeth Mortimer b.1835 in Sidmouth, Devon living in Croydon, as a cook, on the 1871 census. Age is out by a long way though. Where did you get Elizabeth being born in 1849 from?
