( I have moved this from Geneology chat board I put it on the wrong board by mistake.

Please can someone check ths i nformation for me.

Can I also have the relationships between these individuals.

Is Sarah a widow? I Have just received a marriage cert dated 21/10/1941 for one of their daughters Elizabeth and it does not give the fathers name. ? was she illegitimate or has her father died.

These look like likely candidates for Eliza Sheppey's parents: John Sheppey married Sarah Bridgwater 6/11/1816 at North and Middle Littleton

The John on the 1841 is only 25 and as Elizabeth was full age in 1841 this John cannot be her father.

1841 census: North Littleton

John Sheppey, 25, Ag. Lab Sarah, 45 Elisha, 20 Elijah, 15 Eli, 15 John, 15 Emily, 13 Jane, 11 George, 7 All born in the County. ( Kathleen kindly provided me with this information back in 2006)

Thank you for your help

Hi Jane,

The 1841 census is not very informative I am afraid. It dos'nt tell you if people were widowed liked later census. It only tells you if they were born in the county or not also.

And the ages were rounded up or down to the nearest five years.

Transcribed as Shippey on FMP - original could be either. However the age of John is given as 45 as per original.
Relationships are not given on the 1841 census (but it does look like a family with John as Sarah as a couple)

The 1841 doesn't give relationships or marital status, only occupation and whether born in county. The ages for adults are 'rounded' upwards (I think) to the nearest '5'.

Thanks everyone for your kind help. So if John was a live why did they not enter his name on the marriage cert. Or have I got the wrong family.

Can I copy this info to the right thread Please on Find ancestors board. I would like to limit the amount of confussion I have caused. I Put this on Geneology chat by mistake. I will then delete this one.

Picking up from your first post

*John Sheppey, 25*

That is deffinately wrong, and is either a typo or wrongly transcribed. It is 45 on the image.

Thanks DetEcTive. It does seem that it was a typo. These things happen. I have had a quick look at that form you sent me and I think I will send for it and see what happens. I will take a close look tonight to see what I have to do.
