Spain Family 1851 Census
« on: Saturday 30 October 04 21:30 BST (UK) »
Hi!

I'm hoping that someone would be kind enough to look for
the family of Cornelius and Elizabeth Spain in the Census
Returns for 1851.

They married in Wirksworth in 1838, but I now know that
they were not living in Derbyshire at the time of the 1851
Census. I know that by 1862 they had moved to Devon,
their daughter Harriet being married at East Stonehouse
in that year, with her sister Louisa acting as a witness.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ju.

Jaki, thank you so much for finding this because I was
beginning to think I would never be able to track down
Cornelius and his family prior to them moving to Plymouth
in the 1860s.

At the time of his marriage Cornelius was a hawker and on
Harriet's marriage certificate it said he was a traveller and
he certainly seems to have lived up to that description!

Whilst looking at the Civil Registration index of births,
I came across the following:

Louisa Spaine    born Nottingham     Qtr to Sept 1839

It seems likely that this is the Louisa shown in the census
- do you think that her place of birth could be Nottingham?

Anyway, thanks again - I'm off to investigate how to find
out about Irish ancestors now!!
