Amelia disappears.
« on: Wednesday 13 June 18 18:52 BST (UK) »
My great, great grandmother had a sister, Amelia Hatley. She appears in the 1861 census living in South Stoneham (the very first family in district 4c). The family members are her father, Lewis Hatley, mother Sarah Hatley, sister Mary Ann Hatley and Amelia, aged 38. Amelia was christened at South Stoneham on 20th July 1823. In 1862 her mother died (buried at West End on 20th April) and in 1864 her father died on 10th October and was buried on 16th October, also at West End. Both daughters were alive then according to the probate record. Mary Ann is running the Post Office at West End in 1871. Her married sister, Sophia Dunford, is with her. Mary Ann died on 24th December 1878 and was buried at West End on 31st December. In the record she is said to be "of the Rectory Freemantle in the Parish of Milbrook in the said County Spinster the Sister one of the Executors".

I cannot find her in 1881. I cannot find a marriage or a death.

Can anyone shed any light on my latest brick wall ?

Hi,

There is a newspaper article in Southern Echo 25 March 1893 recording a death of an Amelia Hatley 12 Mar 1893 at Felixstowe, Suffolk age 60. Late of West End, near Southampton.

The age is out by 10 years  ??? However it could be a mistake. The location of West End, Southampton ties in.

Also recorded in Hampshire Advertiser 25 March 1893.

Worth looking at?

Thank you very much. I have BNA subscription so I will get straight onto that. I always forget at least one possible source of information.  ::)

Image looks more like Hatley than Harley.

After checking the 1891 Census I was intrigued who Amelia's employer might be. The census was taken on 5 April.
