Joseph Barlow's wife Eliza - born 1799/1800
« on: Sunday 19 October 08 22:05 BST (UK) »
A shot in the dark here, as I'm all out of ideas....

My 3x great-grandfather, Joseph Barlow was a Stone mason, born in Alton, Staffordshire.  He's recorded in the 1841 Census in Alton with his 4 children - Eliza 15 (born out of county), James 15 (born out of county), Leah 12 (born Staffs), John 10 & Thomas 7.  His wife was named  Eliza and was born in 1800 (she had died in June 1836 in Alton aged 36 - details from burial register).

Eliza must have been in Alton in 1829 (as her daughter was born in the county, but must have been in another county in 1827 and before that....

So.... I'm looking for an Eliza somebody-or-other, born in 1799/1800 who married Joseph Barlow, a Staffs-born stone mason,  sometime between say 1820-1825....

.... has anyone lost a young Cheshire lass who might fit the bill??? :)

(warned you it was a bit of shot in the dark ;D - thanks for reading this... any bright ideas gratefully received!!)

Yes, and no... I can't find Eliza, but her brother is living in Alton with step-mother and the younger children - but unhelpfully gives his birthplace as Alton in the 1851 (and all later Census material).

according to an ext.rec.IGI
there is another child
name; job farnsworth barlow
chr date, 3rd march 1827
place; alton,staffordshire.
parents; joseph/eliza barlow.

maye elizas maiden name was farnsworth?

if as you say james gives his bithplace as alton in all the later censuses maybe the one that is wrong is the 1841
having said that i cannot find a christening or birth of james in alton
cattell,alcester
vickers,sulgrave
hewish,holborn
manley,bethnal green
barnes,bassingbourn

Hey thanks wozzle,  I also  found that one last night - but wasn't sure about it as Lichfield would still have given then an address in Staffs - unless they just married there and moved out of county ....

As for the sons... I'd always kind of assumed that Job and James were one and the same - more because of the proximity of ages (even taking into account the rounding in the 1841)...

I'm really grateful for this brainstorming you're giving this... I've stared at this one for so long, it's good to get someone else's lateral thoughts on it! 
Much appreciated ;)

I'll check out Eliza Farneworth later - see if I can pick her up anywhere in later censuses..
