1851 look-up - completed
« on: Thursday 19 March 09 15:49 GMT (UK) »
I`m trying to find Mary Cowlin born approx 1835 in Chipping Ongar. She was living with her father Daniel & mother Mary in High Street, Chipping Ongar in 1841. They were in Epping in 1851 but she wasn`t with them. She married in Shoreditch in 1855.
Many thanks, Jane

Hi Jane,

It's just a thought, but have you seen this one ?

HO107/1771, Folio 139, Page 19

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moreton,_Essex

Mary Cowling, born 1834 in Morston according to the index .. ?

Kind regards,

Pels.

Thanks Pels, I hadn`t found that one.  I don`t know Essex but now I`ve seen where all the places are in relation to one another it does look possible doesn`t it?  I do get the feeling sometimes that the details for servants aren`t always as accurate as they might be!
Many thanks for your help
Jane

Hi again Jane,

Just double checked and the Mary I found may have been indexed as Cowland in 1841 .. if that is the case and it looks likely, in 1861 it appears she had returned to live with her parents John and Sarah ?

Best to confirm what I've said .. but it does look probable .. ?

So no further forward .. ! :(

Pels.

Thought it might be worth mentioning that the whole of the 1851 census for the Dunmow Registration District is missing.

So if Mary was working in that area in 1851 - and it borders the Ongar district so is quite likely - you will not be able to find her.

I too have ancestors in The Ongar and Dunmow registration districts at that time unfortunately!
