1861/71 Census look up please
« on: Saturday 01 March 08 18:49 GMT (UK) »
Good evening

My husband's mother was Doris ASHCROFT bn Hull 1907.  I have her parent's marriage in Hull in 1896 Arthur ASHCROFT 22 father Andrew ASHCROFT, Deceased - to Elizabeth LINGWOOD 17 father Benjamin LINGWOOD.  They had a large family.  I am unable to find them in the 1901 Census, to establish exactly where Arthur ASHCROFT came from.

Arthur ASHCROFT died of Influenza in 1919 aged 48. 

I have found a marriage to Sarah DRIVER 1857 in Birkenhead and a death of an Andrew ASHCROFT in Birkenhead aged 38 - Dec 1878.  I have found 2 children Arthur 22 ?incorrect, on his marriage and 48 on his death.  His sister Sarah bn 1864 marries Charles PLUMB in Hull in 1881. 

I am not sure if this is the correct marriage in 1857 but his widow is Sarah!

The family thought that his wife Sarah might have married again and I believe she married Andrew Wallace in Hull in 1882.

Yes!

these are the parents and their first 2 children.  How wonderful, I gave up looking for them as I had tried such a lot when the census first came out! 

I knew Elizabeth her mother didn't read and write very well according to my mother in law.   Three of her brothers became deep sea fishermen, very well known in Hull, Arthur being in a TV programme in the early 60's.

Thank you very, very much for this which proves I am looking at the right family.
