Cupcake and Choccy, Thank you both so much Especially you Choccy that is a great find thanks :-)

That was a hell of a lot of Money for Rebecca (The relic...Lol) back then, I wonder what she did with it or if her money went to probate or if she did a will, will have to research

Thanks again :-)

Marriage Sep 1849

Asser Joseph S. Geo. East 2 93
Moses Rebecca S Geo. East 2 93

Death Joseph Asser

This is the only death record I can find which matches his birth record but It is registered at Barnet which is quite a distance from Tower Hamlets

Oh wow thats good info Vera, makes sense, good bit of detective work, thank you :-)


SuffolkVera Report 12 Aug 2013 21:37

Difficult to make out but I'm fairly certain it's Bermuda Street. The enumeration district on page 1 of that bit of the census also has a Jamaica Street and a St. Vincent Street so it looks as though several streets in that area are named after West Indian islands.
