For Heathgirl: I appreciate & thank you for your info about Wellington St, Hackney, which is very interesting. The details seem beyond coincidence to indicate that the persons are members of my own family, yet appear to include some anomaly I have not yet been able to solve. Similarly, I recall from previous data that your & my ancestry are most likely linked, but with some other detail missing, so not quite confirming it. I shall inform you of any progress resulting from my research following the helpful lead you have provided. Best regards.

as a postscript to some questions I raised previously in this thread: I obtained the death cert of Sarah Wilkinson (sometimes indexed as Wilkerson) who as noted, died in Royston. She was tended by Anne Brown of Walthamstow (her own address on Higham Hill was helpfully given on the cert which corresponds to a census in Walthamstow, however their relationship is not noted). The place of death was Heydon, Essex. Sarah Wilkinson therefore was likely Anne's mother, or as a long shot a maiden aunt who raised her. There are two baptisms for an Ann Wilkinson that fit in 1834: one in Reed, Essex, to Sarah Wilkinson, and another later in 1834 in Heydon, Essex to a Mary Wilkerson, a lacemaker. Anne's mother was a lacemaker and Anne was born in Reed, Essex, on the 1851 census, but Anne later said she was born in Heydon. I think Sarah Wilkinson was baptized Beulah or similar to Joseph Wilkinson and Mary Yarrow, and was a sister of the Rebecca Wilkinson who married George Tarling, lived in Clapham, and died in West Ham, Essex. If anyone knows more about the place of Rebecca's death I would appreciate that information. I noticed yesterday George Tarling was "paralyzed" on the 1871 census so it is surely his death indexed as "Farling" in 1872, a previous discussion about this was on this thread. open to any more than comes my way about this family

I received the death pdf re Rebecca (nee Wilkinson) Tarling, age 72 in 1878 and have three questions about it. She died at West Ham Union. Present was R. Brown of Walthamstow (which I feel must be Reuben Brown, Ann Wilkinson's husband). There are no street addresses though, moreover it appears the entire details part of the entry was overlaid and rewritten for some reason; there is actually a tiny top bit of the prior writing visible between the headings and the details portion and the (overlaid) details portion of it is slightly skewed. So: Were death entries sometimes modified in this manner, and why? Can anyone tell me if there is a way to order a copy of the original death certificate from Walthamstow records, since I have found a local certificate can be slightly different from the GRO? Lastly, are there existing records for West Ham union or WH Union infirmary that might offer more information about her admission and family details? Thanks
