Mary Ann Farnell - through the censuses
« on: Saturday 11 August 18 00:04 BST (UK) »
Hello all,

Looking for an elusive lady.

Mary Ann Farnell (sometimes Farnall) born in Leeds 2 Dec 1809 to Thomas Farnell and Annabella née Peacock; died in Leeds 15 Oct 1880 and buried in Bramley. I have the details of her birth, death, and even her will, but cannot find her in any census apart from 1841 when she's still living at home with her father in Bingley. She never married.

If anyone can find her in the '51, '61 and '71 censuses I would be very grateful.

Bonus points to anyone who can tell me the fate of her mother Annabella - not in the '41 census with her family, so presuming she died before it. The family were in London for the births of Mary Ann's sisters in 1812 and 1814 but back in Bingley by 1817. She came from a Catholic family, so maybe had a Catholic burial, which will make the record more difficult to find...

Thanks!

Toban

I think that's her! Both her sisters were also involved in teaching, so it looks like all three of them helped to educate!

If any of my subs were active, I'd be there with you doing the digging, but unfortunately can't at the moment :(

'61 and '71 to go!

I really appreciate this :D
