FreeBMD lists the birth of an Ada Isabel Lewin in St Neots June qtr 1887 but the reference number is rather faded

Thanks Kay. I can now see it on Freebmd but it's not on Ancestry which is where I'd looked originally.

Hi, I've sent off for the marriage cert for Ada's Mum (Eliza Lewin) I did notice that the names mentioned where Luff, Lewin & Pryke, Wondering if Pryke was her Maiden name? found her younger sister Ethel who was born 10 months before Lewin/Luff marriage and although she has a Luff surname wondered if she was actually a Lewin....????

I am not sure where Pryke comes from on the reference to the marriage of Stephen Luff and Eliza Lewin, but there does appear to be a Eliza Pryke in the 1871 and 1881 of the right age born in Bythorn - Below in 1881 living at Church End, Great Catworth with her family.

George Pryke    58 Bricklayer b Suffolk
Emma Pryke    35 b Lowick
George Pryke    18
Eliza Pryke    13
Martha Pryke    11
Alfred Pryke    6
Walter Pryke    1
All children born Bythorne, Huntingdon

It will be interesting to hear whether the marriage cert lists her as a Widow.  I can't see a marriage for an Eliza Pryke to a Lewin at the moment

Ethel may have been registered as a Luff before her parent's marriage as she was the child of Stephen Luff.

Hi Kay,
My certificate arrived today and it says :- 1890 Catworth, Eliza Lewin, 22, Widow, Father George Pryke deceased, So that clears things up  for me. Just got to find a Pryke/Lewin marriage or a Lewin Death/Burial

Thanks for letting us know and at least it confirms it is Eliza Pryke.  I still can't see a marriage or obvious death.  I wonder if Ada's birth cert actually lists her father?
