Elizabeth Perry ne้ Bennet - place of birth?
« on: Tuesday 24 April 18 07:45 BST (UK) »
I'm having a problem with enumerator script. I think I have the same Elizabeth in 1841, 1851 & 1861 census returns. Bull Inn 1841, Haverhill with 3 daughters, Maria, Emma & Selina; 1851, Elizabeth (Widow), Haverhill with 3 daughters, Maria, Emma Elizabeth, Eleanor (Selena?) and on her own in 1861, Laundress as she was in 1851. What I can't make out is her Suffolk place of birth:
Falmetham, Felhatham, Fettenshaw, Fettensham. Any suggestions, please. Bordering on the pedantic but attempting some accuracy and hoping this is the Elizabeth who married Joseph and not Thomas Perry!
