Bishton/Link , Claverley
« on: Monday 29 August 05 08:32 BST (UK) »
Hi there,
I am trying to piece togther the LINK family tree.

Elizabeth Link born Alveley 1854 was a servant in Claverley at the time of the 1881 census.
According to the freebmd website  an Elziabeth Link possibly married a John Bishton during the summer of 1881.

The 1901 census records an Elizabeth and a John Bishton in the Claverley area but both listed as "born Claverley" ???

Anyone got the Claverley 1891 census and could possibly check them out ??
Any help or advice much appreciated

In 1891 (Worfield, Shropshire), she is already down as born Claverley. Just as in 1901, they are not simply dittoed. Also, as in 1901, she is 5 years out (born ca. 1859).
