I can't quite work out how the two step-daughter's in the 1871 census above are called Elliott as this seems to be William Tompkins marriage (as there is a brother-in-law called Williams staying with them):-

Name: TOMPKINS, William Thackery
Registration district: West Ham
County: Essex
Year of registration: 1870
Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Spouse's last name: Not available before 1912
Volume no: 4A
Page no: 45

MarriageFinder: William Thackery Tompkins married one of the following people:

HUTCHING, Jane Elizabeth
WILLIAMS, Sarah Louise<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
STUBBINGS, Alexander John

I can't find a marriage of a Williams to an Elliott

Do you actually have Rosina's birth certificate? If not then it would be best to get it to confirm her parent's names:-


Name: REEVES, Rosina
Registration district: West Ham
County: Essex
Year of registration: 1889
Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Mother's maiden name: Not available before 1911 Q3

Karen Report 30 Jan 2013 11:15

Am trying to find out information on my great grandmothers parents. My great grandmother was called Rosina Reeves and was born 31 March 1889 in Essex. I believe her parents were William Reeves and Louisa Reeves (nee Crafter) I believe it was the second marriage for both but am having trouble finding any information on either of them.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
