Hi all, I wonder if anyone if free to help at all please?

I'm searching for my Great Great Grandmother. The details I have so far are;

Alice Louise White born 1852 Highfield, Wiltshire

1st marriage 4.8.1873 - Jospeh Jeffery - Southampton, Hampshire. Her year of birth is confirmed as 1852 and her father is listed as George White. She is listed on the 1881 census living with Joseph and their 4 children in St Marys, Southampton. It is listed on here that again she was born in Highfield. Also her first daughter Alice is listed as being born in Highfield in 1872.

2nd marriage 3.11.1884 - George Morgan - Southampton, Hampshire. Then find Alice and George on the 1901 census living in St Marys, Southampton with their children and Rose Jeffrey age 22 from her 1st marriage. On this census report thought Alice is listed as being born in Southampton?

What I'm really trying to do is trace Alice Louise's parents and any siblings she may of had.

Many thanks :-)

On that 61 census posted by Maddie Alice was born 1855 and her mother Ann was born 1795. Gave birth at age 60???

Sunny

Oh yes, that's true. Also I've just double checked the 1881 census where both Alice Louise and her daughter Alice are listed. It only actually states where born 'Highfield'. Someone has then written Wilts to the left of this but it could well be Highfield in South Stoneham/Southampton which would tie in with above
