No it is available for 1891

Where they married by 1891?


MarieCeleste Report 2 Feb 2013 20:36

They were living 192 Gloucester Road when daughter Caroline Eliza baptised 1892


GlitterBaby Report 2 Feb 2013 20:44

Not at the moment finding 192 Gloucester Road on address search on FMP for 1891


DazedConfused Report 2 Feb 2013 21:36

Possible mis transcribed
Grice could be listed as Gice Grive or many other variations.

Try just a first name, year and place of birth and see what comes up.

I had this with a relative her surname was Sell, found her in this way and she and rest of family were listed as Loll !!!

Sometimes you have to think 'outside of the box' :-D

Thank you all for trying

I see they were living at 119 Gloucester Road, not 192, at the time of Caroline Eliza's baptism.

I found this address on 1891 census on Ancestry but the family was not there.


MarieCeleste Report 3 Feb 2013 10:05

Moonbeam, you are quite right so I'm now off to specsavers.

One thing I did notice was that John's occupation has changed from laundreyman on their marriage to carman on that baptism.


PriscillaEmilywasMoonbeam Report 3 Feb 2013 10:23

MarieCeleste, I noticed that too but I see that on the 1901 Census he is a Laundry Carman. Maybe he delivered the laundry.
