London and Middlesex / Re: 1851 Census Richard CUSICK & Martha
« on: Monday 07 February 11 12:01 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Valda

Thanks very much for your contribution.  I had found the 1871 and 1881 census entries, but not the 1891 one.  (In the 1880s most of that PEACOCK family moved to Australia, and two of her children married there and stayed there.)  Her age in 1891 is not a good match: she was born in 1828 and would have been 62 or 63 in 1891, not 53 as recorded.  But that still might be 'my' Martha BENSTEAD, because she had fudged her age in almost every other census.  I still haven't found her second husband in 1891 or his death before that, nor have I found her death.

Many thanks again

Graeme

Many thanks for the reply.  If you ever find out what finally happened to Martha CUSICK after she became PEACOCK I'd love to hear about it.

This is a very interesting piece of detective work about Martha BENSTEAD and Richard CUISICK/CUSICK/CUSACK.  The image of their daughter Ellen's birth certificate seems to me to show her as "Ellen Hart." with a period after Hart, as if Hart is an abbreviation for Harriet. 
Does any one know what happened to either of the CUSICK daughters?
I have information about Martha BENSTEAD and her second husband, Thomas Ralph PEACOCK, and five children.  Are you interested in that?  I hasten to add that I don't know the fate of either Martha or Thomas PEACOCK.
