The children in the workhouse (as posted by GB) are my best guess.

People in OZ have that Emily as born,etc.

Wrong one,though...



BM Report 31 May 2013 15:15

Would more likely be the 1870 birth?


safc Report 31 May 2013 15:13

could be one of these ????

Births Mar 1862 (>99%)
TROWELL Elizabeth St Luke 1b 619

Births Sep 1870 (>99%)
Trowell Elizabeth Jane Pancras 1b 112

On the 1891 census, isn't she living with her husband and children?


jax Report 31 May 2013 14:51

Which of course be a lie if she was under age


GlitterBaby Report 31 May 2013 14:51

Thats a shame that Elizabeth is on 1891 with her parents


BM Report 31 May 2013 14:49

Elizabeth doesn't have an occupation on the marriage certificate.

I got her year of birth off of her marriage certificate.

Most of the Trouell entries on FreeBMD from 1851 - 1871 are in Hull/Scolcoates

Does she have any occupation on the marriage cert


jax Report 31 May 2013 14:42

Her age is different on each census ranging from 1870 - 1873 and you have 1868??

BM Report 31 May 2013 14:36

Yes, I thought that but still couldn't find a birth in Westminster?


GlitterBaby Report 31 May 2013 14:32

I keep thinking the name must be Trowell


BM Report 31 May 2013 14:30

He was a foreman. :-)

Rambling Rose Report 31 May 2013 14:29

What was John's occupation on the marriage cert?


BM Report 31 May 2013 14:28

The occupation of father is a foreman, the witnesses are not related, at least not to her husband.


BM Report 31 May 2013 14:27

Yes I have, but I would like to find out about her birth, where she lived before she was married.


GlitterBaby Report 31 May 2013 14:26

What is the occupation of her father on the marriage cert ?

Any witnesses related ?
