Is Mary still alive in 1861 - does that give a place of birth?

Hello Groom & John,

I know that Mary was from Sussex, but I do not have a place name. I also know she died after 1851 Census, but have no idea when she died.

I think Mary and family are in Shoreditch (Hoxton) in 1861, recorded as Parker. It's possible it's an s on the end of that name, but more like an r?

Did William die in Islington in 1846, age 54? I'm not sure!

There's a burial at Bunhill Fields
7 June 1846
William Parks
age 55
where brought from - Popham Street (perhaps there's a number there, something 7, partially hidden in the image?)

They were in Popham Street in 1841

When Henry Thomas Parks married in 1861 Shoreditch his address was 12 Mount Row  ;)  Emma Elizabeth Parks was a witness

Thanks Rosie.
And that was the address in 1861. Why did I say Mount Place?

This is unfortunate.
In the Islington Register of Paupers Settlement, 1828-1848
1846
Parkes William
residence 27 Popham Street
age 54
Married
4 children
Remarks 27 May St Luke

But I can't find the appropriate book on ancestry
The have, in Islington settlement papers
Rough examinations book, 1844-1846 (goes to March 1846)

and in Islington miscellaneous
Rough examinations book, 1847-1848

The missing book is listed at the LMA
1846 Mar 1847 Feb
Rough examinations book
P83/MRY1/0900

It may contain the answers we need! Or it may not.
Perhaps "St Luke" means that William was considered settled there.

Hello Rosie, John,

Great to receive your wonderful help. I indeed think 1861 in Shoreditch Hoxton is correct;
Mary Parker = Mary Pars nee Reed
Henry parker = Henry Thomas Parks ~ 02-04-1837 Finsbury Middlesex
Wal Parker = Walter John Parks ~ 1840
Emma Parker = Emma Elizabeth Parks ~11-03-1832 Brighton Sussex

Great we have the bural date of William 07-06-1841
It would be great if the in the Islington Register of Paupers Settlement book of 1846 can be found.

Well I hope someone can find that exams book online
LMA says
Not available for general access
available online via ancestry.co.uk
But where?

Since the exam was dated 27 May, and William was buried 7 June, perhaps you shouldn't expect too much from it.
We could do with a death for Mary after 1861.
