John Taylor & Mildred
« on: Friday 10 November 17 19:56 GMT (UK) »
Good Evening

I am looking for a marriage for John Taylor born 1796 Colsterworth Louth to a female called Mildred.

In the 1851 Census John is a carpenter aged 55, and Mildred is aged 49 Edward St Louth. They had 1 daughter Caroline that I know was baptised 1834 Louth and there are possibly 3 other children Frances, William and John.

I thought I had found them in the 1841 Census aged 45 and 39 Gospel Gate Louth ( cant for the life of me find it now ) I was trying to double check that Mildred was listed as Mildred. The reason for checking was I was thinking Caroline had married a William Cole 1855 Louth, all was progressing lovely till 1871 Census a mother is listed and called Mary ???.

Which then brings me to not being able to find either John or Mildred in 1861 Census.

Any ideas ......please

Many Thanks
Moo

You sound unsure as to whether you have the right marriage for Caroline?

Have you looked at the 1871 entry properly?  Mary was surname Waite - not Taylor and she is shown as the mother of the head of the household (ie) William Cole not as Caroline's mother.  If she was Caroline's mother she would be shown as mother in law

Have you checked freebmd for deaths for John & Mildred between 1851-1861?

Thank you Crisane - That's the one I am working from  ;D

Hello CaroleW - You are right I am not totally sure of the marriage and was thinking I was on the wrong track when I saw mother and the surname not being Cole. Then not being able to find Mildred and John in 1871 to check if Caroline was still with them.
 
I think (hope) I am right (before ordering any certs) is in 1851- 1881 Caroline's brother is a butchers apprentice, and William Cole is a Pigger / Cattle Dealer.  I was thinking that maybe thats how Caroline and William Cole met. Long shot - I know. ::)

Is Caroline your direct ancestor?  If so - you must know who she married

Hi CaroleW - Caroline is not my direct line, I try and do brothers and sisters as best as I can.
