Susan Wing Mildenhall
« on: Saturday 07 October 17 07:54 BST (UK) »
Hi I'm researching Susan Wing, born Mildenhall around 1807 according to a later census (1861 when she was married to a John Scrase in Hackney).  She married him in  1/12/1842 in Saint Bride Fleet St ,London her name given as Susan Wing.  They had 2 children Mary Ann and William, both born in Hackney Union (workhouse).

I haven't been able to find a Susan Wing born in Mildenhall at around that time so wondering if she married a Wing.  Have found 4 children with parents Susan and Charles Wing all born Mildenhall - between 1820 and 1831 (Family Search), but no luck finding a marriage.

If anyone could help with a marriage look up for Charles and Susan that would be great.  Alternatively Susan might have been born a Wing so a look up on that if the marriage doesn't pan out.

Thanks in advance
Rochelle

Her 1842 marriage states she was a spinster and names her father as Robert Wing occupation Farmer


ADDED  1851 census gives place of birth as Woodbridge, Suffolk

The entry for Susan's marriage to John Scrase in 1842 states that she was a spinster - father given as Robert Wing, farmer.

Snap, Rosie !!

Just eliminating  ;)
1841 Mildenhall has a Robert Wing age 40 with a Susan the same age with two children, they are still together in 1851.
