Have just checked all the John Hall's married in June 1878,there is not one in Kensington I'm afraid  :(

Back to the drawing board.


There's a John Halls marrying a Mary Anne Hooper in June 1/4 1876 - Launceston 5c 38

And Emma Halls born Apr-May-Jun 1881 - Launceston 5c 46.

Perhaps it was WEEKS after all, and the enumerator was having a really bad day.

That one has been mentioned before Sally,but I'm afraid she isn't Mary Anne- her mum and younger sister are........she is Mary Elizabeth.

Whatever the reason they all ended up in London is also why older sister Elizabeth Hooper went up to town and married there too,in 1888.

Her dad and brother both called George died in Honiton in 1878 and 1877.
I guess they moved up after that?

This isn't my family but an attempt to find everyone for a friend.
His line is through Elizabeth.

Thanks for all your suggestions anyway.

Hi Carol,

Just throwing another possibility in.   :D

What if it's not Hall but Hale.  The writing on the rest of the page has some lower case letters that are as big as the capitals.  The last letter could be an "e" rather than a "L".

What do you think?
