Do all your family live locally, or could Edith have stayed with a relative and died away from Wellington. (That happened with my Mother-in-law)
Or could the informant have her birth year wrong? Or given her a middle name?
( Just trying various possibilities.)

I just did what I always do.
I looked for a marriage for Davis Davies marrying a few years prior to the birth of the eldest child Ann Elizabeth in an appropriate area, because marriages were nearly always conducted in the brides parish.
I didn´t just come up with it.

edith didnt marry jack was her son then she had mam nancy 1912 ,i found d davies /elizabeth blann 1873 pitchford ,but not sure now you come up with madeley one

wisechild

wisechild Report 10 Dec 2012 07:38


Could this be the marriage?
David Davies/Eliza Fox 2nd quarter 1876 Madeley.
Madeley is not far from Wellington.
Could Jack aged 4 on the 1911 census be a grandchid rather than a child,possibly the illegitimate son of one of the daughters. Would have thought Elizabeth was a bit old for him to be her child, though not impossible.

CAPRI Report 9 Dec 2012 23:31

edith was my gran tried finding when she died,my elder sister thinks she can remember her when she was little,so i put in from 1940 onwards still cant find her,think i found william,sorry that is edith birth

If they died between the censuses, then they will not show.
You will have to look for births and deaths in the area for the children and with the name Davies there will be quite a few....

Added:
Is this Edith's birth?
Births Dec 1887
Davies Edith Wellington, Sh. 6a 727
