Thanks Philip. There's a new variation! That might be helpful in expanding the pool I'm looking at from that area :)

Thank you Gibel, another piece of the puzzle for Sarah. I'd never heard of the British Home Children's Registry so looking forward to going through it. Perhaps the Sarah who left with Peter will help shed light on Frances and her husband.

Thanks everybody for the replies.
Gibel - yes I have Peter Augustine registered in 1886. That's a very interesting piece of information, thank you. I'll follow that up. And yes the writing is atrocious for Frances' godparents! I have John? and Frances Cooper who was her aunt and who appears a few times as godmother for other family members.
As for Sarah Blundell's burial. I have her buried in Sts Peter and Paul Cemetery, Great Crosby. This is where her husband was buried and quite a number of extended family members.

That was my thought too Kay99.
Thanks heatherjulie. I did see this and I think this is important for me to keep in mind when going through GRO and other records. I was pretty sure there was going to be another Rimmer-Blundell union given the locale. But I do still have an 1874 birth for a William Henry (pre this marriage) and I do have a death record for a Frances Mary Rimmer  ???

Yes that is the 1881 census that has thrown me. Don't know who the William Henry is in this one but in the 1891 census William appears again and is 17, which matches the DOB I have for him as 1874. Kay99 I did wonder the same i.e. did she take her partner's name but never actually married him? I haven't yet got hold of a birth certificate but probably a good next step if a marriage doesn't come to light! Thank you :)

Lancashire / Frances Mary Blundell - where is she?
« on: Monday 05 April 21 02:25 BST (UK)  »
Hi there, I am hoping for some assistance in tracking Frances Mary Blundell. I can no longer see the wood for the trees! Here is what I have thus far:
Frances Mary Blundell, daughter of Sarah Blundell (nee Cooper) and William Blundell - DOB 25/1/1852 - Kirkdale, Lancashire.
1861 census - at home with Mum and Dad;1871 census - at home with Mum who is now a widow, both laundresses.
This is where I start to go down a rabbit hole:
1881 census - the only one I can find that seems to match is for a Mary F Rimmer (married) who is a boarder along with a Sarah C Blundell (widow and charwoman). Mary has a child Sarah E. The details for Sarah (apart from the 'c') match. Is Mary F actually my Frances Mary?
I have searched for a marriage for Frances Mary to a Rimmer with no joy. I have searched GRO and can find Sarah Elizabeth as a birth for a Rimmer with mother's maiden name Blundell.
Moving to 1891 census - again I can find a Mary Rimmer (now widowed and Mum has died by this stage) with 3 children - William, Sarah and Peter. All can be found on GRO as Rimmer with mother's maiden name Blundell. No idea where William was in the 1881 census.
I have also found a death record for a Frances Mary Rimmer in 1892.
From 1881 on, have I actually found my Frances Mary Blundell? Did she in fact marry a Rimmer and if so, who was he and why can't I find a marriage record? (I have looked for a previous marriage to see if she married under another name but no joy there either). If this isn't my Frances Mary, where did she go? (I also can't find a death entry for her under this name).
All thoughts and ideas gratefully received! :) TIA

Anyone researching Mousedales from around Frodsham? I'm particularly interested in John Mousedale (DOB c. 1751) and his children. I have a potential marriage to Mary Percivall.
TIA :)
