i'm looking for Isabella Agnes Arnison in 1911. she married a Mr. Benjamin Hunter in 1906 in Easington Co.Durham but can't seem to find either in the 1911 census.

I dont have any info on Benjamin, but Isabella/Isabel was born 1883 in Lyne sack and Softly/Copley.

any help would be greatly appreciated!

thanks Alison

Do you have their marriage cert? If so, what was Benjamin's occupation?

Which county is Lyne etc in?

i don't have the cert. i found the marriage on the website.

Lynesack is in Teesdale, thats all i know. i've checked deaths etc.. but Isabella didn't die until 1953 in County Durham.

yes! i think that might be them, crazy how a spelling mistake can prevent you finding them!
