1881 what does it say?
« on: Wednesday 20 September 06 12:51 BST (UK) »
This is from  RG11  0038 folio  94  page 50

The family with them is her mum Mary Hooper,and a couple of sisters.

But what is the surname here? And what does it say next to the child Mary,in the occupation column please.

I cannot find the child's birth if it IS what is has been transcribed as,nor can I find a marriage......I won't say what they think it is until you lot have guessed. ;D

Most of the Hoopers were born in Honiton Devon,although the wife Mary is fibbing a bit about her age- she is 10 on the 1861!!!

All suggestions gratefully received. ;)

Carol

I think it says 'months' next to her age.
I'm still thinking about the surname!

Change that to 'weeks'
(and it could be 'Hall').

Could it be Plall?  Paull??  A hard one.  I think it is 7 weeks though.

I'm never any good at this but I'm throwing my 2 pennies worth in anyway  ;)

I would alos say 'weeks'

As for the name I think it looks like it ends in 'le' - if you look at the 'e' on the end of 'wife' - they do look similar  ???

John Hall and 7 weeks

Just keep peering at the pages wheeldon  ;D some I can do, some I can't.

Something else you might try is go back and forth through the pages, just sometimes the handwriting might be a little bit better and you can 'get an eye in', usually works well for the area or street name too  :D
