Elisabeth Schofield/Watson
« on: Friday 15 June 18 18:49 BST (UK) »
Looking for some help please! I'm managed to trace quite a bit of my family tree but having some trouble with on person. My great x4 grandad Peter Virtue was married to a woman called Elisabeth Schofield and I have birth certificates for all their children. However on Peters death certificate his parents are correct but it says married to Elizabeth Watson.  On Elisabeth's death certificate it says widow of Peter Virtue and her mother is recorded as Sarah Watson formerly Schofield Ms Page. So my question is...do you think Elizabeth Schofield and Elizabeth Watson are the same people? Do you have any suggestions on how to verify it?

Unfortunately you haven't given dates for death or birth for Elizabeth but...

"On Elisabeth's death certificate it says widow of Peter Virtue and her mother is recorded as Sarah Watson formerly Schofield Ms Page"

This seems correct to me & means Elizabeths' mother was previously married to Mr Schofield & maiden surname was Page.

Was Elizabeth Virtue/Schofield born Canterbury Kent ?

Familysearch has a marriage Thomas Schofield / Sarah Page c1802 Canterbury Kent  :-\

Might be a long shot but SP have a death for a Sarah Watson(other surname Page) , age 90 , 1874 St George Midlothian.
Were Peter and Elizabeth's deaths registered in St George Midlothian ?
