Looking for family of Emily Eliza Butler of Clewer, Windsor.
« on: Thursday 12 January 17 12:50 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I am researching a family who ran our village shop in Suffolk back in the 1890s till 1930s. Emily is on the 1911 census as having been born in Clewer in 3rd quarter of 1865. I can't find any info about her birth family. She married Henry Nathan Potter of Long Stratton, Norfolk in 1888. They lived in Norton St. Andrew, Suffolk, where Henry ran a saddlers, drapers and grocers business. They had a child Edgar, born 1889. Any additional info about her, her parents or any siblings would be most helpful.
Burt, Cockrill, Craske, Debenham, Double, Grimwade, Grimwood, Hilder, Mayhew, Ray. All from  West Suffolk around the Bury St. Edmunds area.
Simpson, Pittendreigh, Arthur.   Aberdeenshire

From the new GRO indexes

Emily Elizer BUTLER mother's maiden name   ILLSLEY

Obtaining her birth certificate will confirm both parents names or
her marriage cert. should give you her father's name

There's this marriage entry from FreeBMD

Jun 1861 Cookham   2c   647
BUTLER   William   
female names on same page
ILLSLEY    Betsey/Betsy   
Wetherall    Emily

Lizdb - I tried using the GRO indexes to see if I could find a mother's maiden name
for Louisa but I'm drawing a blank using the following references from FreeBMD  ???

Jun 1868 Windsor 2c 422
BUTLER Louisa

Ive just tried with Jane, and the only contender on gro I can find is

Jane Emily, OND 1860, Eton, 03A 339, mmn Godman   ???

CANCEL THAT (cant get crossing out to work!!) She was 1870, not 1860, I'm looking at the wrong decade!
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

I think this is one of those convoluted ones. :)

William BUTLER possibly married Emily Wetherall as per the 1871 census.

It looks to me as though Emily was born before her parents marriage:
 Jane Wetherall
possible spouse: Thomas Illsley 1841 Cookham.
