Elizabeth J.S. Williams-Guernsey
« on: Monday 04 January 10 19:14 GMT (UK) »
On the 1911 UK census for Gelligaer, Glamorgan, Mrs Elizabeth J.S. Brawn nee Williams aged 42, gave her birthplace as Guernsey.  Can someone please do a look-up on the 1871 census of Guernsey for Elizabeth J.S. Williams who would be 2 years old at that time.  I would also appreciate the 1881 details.
Regards, Roy

Could this be your Elizabeth on the 1881 Census below?  Although this does makes her 16 and not 12.  I could not find another Elizabeth Williams born between 1866-1869.

Hello HistoryFan
I'm sure you are aware that ages can differ throughout the census's so the entry you posted is a possible but leaves me some work to prove if correct or not.

Many thanks for your time and help.
