Mary? Ann Bibby 1871 Bermondsey
« on: Thursday 16 November 17 13:44 GMT (UK) »
Familysearch shows May Ann Bibby, age 30, married, on the 1871 census living in Bermondsey as Head of household.
Her birthplace is stated as Bridport, Shropshire which doesn't seem to exist.
Is the writing poor? Could she be Mary Ann born Bridgenorth?
When I select the film number, she appears to be living with Thomas Bibby, publican, age 40, married, who is also Head of household. Are they together but on separate pages or are they in separate houses?
Thomas was a widower in 1881 and a Mary Ann, of the right age, died in Mile End in 1873 (FreeBMD)

Hello,

There is a marriage 1868 Camberwell where Thomas Bibby and Mary Ann Felton are on th3 same page.
1861 shows a Mary Ann Felton b Bridgnorth, Shropshire so may be worth following up.

PS it does look like Bridport on the census.

Thanks Heywood. This is what led me to think that she was Mary Ann Felton from Bridgenorth.
I'm looking for further confirmation.

Thomas and Mary Ann Bibby are indeed together in 1871 - think the problem is that on the original page Thomas is shown as 'Head' and instead of having 'wife' listed for Mary Ann the enumerator has 'dittoed' it and thus the index transcription is also showing her as 'head'.

I think someone has asked about this before, the names sound familiar.
