Hello Chris

What a lovely surprise Christmas Eve present you have given me. I am thrilled to bits. It seems after Anna's death that Matthew married again. Thank you for including the baptism date and the death dates. I am going to have a look through it all again in a second.

THANK YOU CHRIS...I really appreciate your help.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND EVERYONE

Jenny XX :-D

You're welcome Jenny. It does seem rather a long time. Maybe they had some that died?

Jennifer

Jennifer Report 23 Dec 2013 21:46

Thank you Alviegal I couldn't find them at all. It seemed along time after their wedding before their child was born. I wanted to see if they had children earlier.

Thank you for this census

Hi..I wondered if anyone could help me please.

Anna Gagen was born 1836 in Foulsham Norfolk. I know she married a Matthew Wiley b1832 Hindolveston Norfolk in 1858. I believe they had a son Matthew H Wiley b1871 in Sheffield Yorkshire.

I have found Anna & Matthew on the 1881 census living with Matthew's widowed father but I can't get anything on the 1861 or 1871 census of the family at all. It comes up no match.

Could anyone see if there is anything that I have missed.

Thank you X
