Curious about the mmn's  :-\

It would be interesting to see what is actually written on the death certificate for her age, "39" may just be an error. The death notice has it correct then.  :)

Agree with you about tree copying, never take anything for granted!

Happy to help.  :D

One of my father's first jobs was in a chocolate factory - he couldn't eat chocolate for many many many years after!

I would think it would be very unusual to be buried under her maiden name. The burial register at Mortlake for Elizabeth CRUMP on Oct 16 1829 says her abode was Mortlake. Again, this doesn't really fit with the baptism and burial of son Edmund of Newgate Market in June 1829. There are a couple of possibilities for other Elizabeth's who married CRUMPs around Mortlake in the right time period. So overall, I think I would rule out that burial.

However, I can't see a burial for Elizabeth JURY, certainly not at St Faith under St Paul. There is an Elizabeth French JURY who died 30 March 1841, but she was married to Henry JURY, so not yours. Will keep looking.  :)

Thanks for looking pampoen. I have seen those records from the Cape Town Archives, I should have mentioned that there was a thread a number of years ago about them when I was just starting my research into this family:

RootsChatters have also helped with a few other aspects, mostly related to the son Joshua.

I have also seen the living museum catalogue with Emma's bio. In fact I have been wondering how they acquired her sheet music as I thought I had all the family memorabilia! Must have been donated to them before my time I guess. When all thing Covid settle down I intend to visit and try to get a look at the books, it would be lovely to see her handwriitng.

The fact that her music made its way to Australia (presumably with husband or son) indicates to me that Emma was no longer living, but where and when she died remains a mystery.

There are a few mentions in newspapers of the Silvertains up to around 1949. There is  also an item in the Coventry Standard, Thursday 17 February 1966 - unfortunately I don't have access to the whole article. The preview:

"I have heard from two very old friends. whom I have not seen for over 20 years Madam Thomas formerly with The Silvertains, musical and magical duo, who is now resident at Ford's Hospital."

Try findmypast newspapers or the British Newspaper Archive.
