1871 Census Chatteris - Cornish Family
« on: Sunday 20 February 05 02:54 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
I was wondering if someone could possibly look up the following family for me on the 1871 Census:

Joseph Cornish born approx 1834
Ellen Cornish (nee Beck) born approx 1841
Stephen Cornish born approx 1861
Joseph Cornish born approx 1864
Elizabeth Cornish born approx 1868
All were born in the Chatteris area.

Thanking you,

Lynne Coe
Melbourne, Australia

hi have found your family for you


Ellen Cornish  30  Ag lab  b. Chatteris
Stephen  "       9   Son of Ag lab  b. Chatteris
Joseph    "       7      "       "     "    b. Chatteris
Elizabeth "       2    Dau    "     "    b. Doddington

They were all in the North Witchford Union Workhouse.
Next to Ellen's name there is just a W ? I presumed this to mean she is a widow especially as there is no husband

All the best Angela.

Angela,

Thanks so much for you quick response.  We knew from the 1881 Census and their son's marriage certificate that Ellen's husband had passed away before 1881.  This helps to narrow it down further.

Thanks again

Lynne
