Eliza Parker nee Foster
« on: Friday 22 April 16 13:59 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find a marriage between Eliza Foster and Henry Parker c. 1833
the 1851 census shows Eliza Parker as a 37 year old widow, living with her is mother Mary Foster  Sheffield.
Also with her is daughter Catherine  b.c 1835
there is a birth record of Catherine Parker 31st Jan 1835 to Henry and Eliza Parker, so it seems reasonable to assume that Eliza married a Henry Parker, Catherine was baptised at St Peter and St Paul Cathedral Sheffield, so perhaps the marriage took place there, are there any records on line for that date ?
Incidentally there is a death of a Henry Parker 1849 at Sheffield which could be the right one

Hi,

This would appear to be the Foster/Parker family on the 1841, however there is no Henry with them   but Eliza went on to have more children. So either Henry was not at home for the 1841 or the children from the 1851 were not his.

Mary Foster   60
Elizabeth Foster   25
Sarah Thompson   30
Robt Thompson   12
Henry Thompson   8
Mary Thompson   1
Eliza Parker   30
Catron Parker   6
Wm Parker   2

Wm Seeker   2

Looking at NBI there are two burials in Sheffield in 1849 for the name Henry Parker -

4 Feb 1849 aged 33, St Mary Ecclesfield, Sheffield
3 May 1849 aged 25, St John's Sheffield Park.

The one in May would seem to be too young to be married to Eliza and equally the one buried in February seems to be a bit young.
