Father Thomas Brusby 1819 - 1889 fish curer
Mother Hannah Crompton b 1820
They moved to Newcastle in 1850s but cannot trace Louisa
This is all the information I have about Louisa
I do not have details of MC

Been trying to find that family on 1851 but no luck at the moment


GlitterBaby Report 21 Aug 2013 12:51


If you do not have the marriage cert how do you know that Thomas and Hannah are her parents


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 21 Aug 2013 12:56

Agreeing with Glitterbaby re the MC.

Could the family have been mis-transcribed in 1851?
And why or how did Louisa end up darn suff??


GlitterBaby Report 21 Aug 2013 13:05

Odd that Thomas and Hannah are still in Northumberland in 1871

Throw this idea into the mix - she is just old enough to have been married before so again it is back to the marriage cert

I have applied for MC and BC. The information I had for her married life came from my family members who are now unfortunately deceased. Other information has been from other members of Genes but they do not have any further information listed.

Thanking you all for your help. :-)

As the 1861 census safc found was a Penitentary I looked in newspapers but the only info there was for her marriage on 12/10/1866 to Stephen Maxted at Margate.

I now have BC and MC. Confirm mother Hannah Crompton & father Thomas Brusby, she was born in 1845 in Hull not Newcastle. Father on marriage cert. Thomas Brusby. She was also a spinster when married.

Thanks, but I really want to know Louisa's whereabouts between birth and marriage. 1845 - 1866 How did she get from Newcastle to Margate?

As she was in the penitentiary in 1861 in Newcastle she must have moved to Margate sometime between 1861 and 1866
