Cross-posted, but I think you mean it is in 1881 that Ellen is listed as granddaughter of the widowed Eliza Gilbert (in 1871 she's entered as step-child in Joseph Gilbert's household).

The mysterious Gloucestershire birthplace for Eliza is rendered as "Heirscomb" in the 1861 census - so perhaps it's Harescombe?  Registration district would be Wheatenhurst, but I can't see a birth reg for her.

Yes but can't work out why this is the case since her mother and grand parents are all born in and around Limpsfield, Surrey.
I believe I have her mother Eliza on the 1841 census as a servant at a school or workhouse maybe, in Bletchingley, Surrey registration district of Godstone, Surrey.

Regards,
Jon

Out of interest, what name did the marriage Eliza give for her father? The fact that there is a father named on the marriage cert doesn't mean that the bride wasn't illegitimate- many of them made up names. I've got one who used her own surname and her stepfather's forename.

Which Eliza are you referring to? We haven't found a WOOD/WEBB marriage yet.


I did find one marriage certificate for a Charles WOOD and Elizabeth WEBB in 1884 at Pains Hill Chapel(Baptists), Godstone, Surrey but their ages don't add up(too young especially Eliza)

This couple are most likely the family living in Godstone, all children born with mmn WEBB.

Morning,

Just to add that Eliza WEBB, the one for whom I am looking for a marriage certificate, was baptised on 27th March 1859 as an ADULT to Eliza WEBB mother and single woman in St.Peter's, Limpsfield, Surrey.

Regards,
Jon
