Title: identifying location
Post by: mongoose2 on Monday 23 March 09 20:46 GMT (UK)
The extract attached is from the 1861 census in Devon. The people are

William Henry Foxley b. 1834 in Northampton
Laura Matilda Barlow Foxley nee Jones  b.1836 (no idea!!!)

George Washington New Foxley b. 1858 Woolwich Barracks
L ? Foxley daughter b. also in Woolwich Barracks although cant see it in FreeBMD

Need help identifying where Laura is born.They aren't too helpful and I cannot trace them in any other census other than 1861.

Laura FOXLEY married Alfred SHORE Sep qtr 1870, Lambeth, but for some reason she is still as FOXELEY in 1871 census.

Can't see a death for William Henry FOXLEY.

Thanks for that. I did eventually work out the marriage to Alfred and then find her in 1881. Death of 1st hubby was 1868 from the National Archives. they were at chatham barracks in 1868. That makes Harriet's father a ?.

Eleanor Esther Foxley was my Great Gtreat Grandmother.

The others I can now add to the tree.
