Struggling to find a maiden name.
« on: Thursday 15 July 10 13:56 BST (UK) »
Hi...
On the most recent census i have found my 3x great grandparents. Edmund and Louise Webster. They were living at Stanley Lane in Teversal, Nottinghamshire. On the census it says they have been married for 22 years. Making their marriage approx 1889. It also says Louise was born in 1862 in Wilts Upper Church.
Im strugglingling to find a marriage / birth for her that matchs that info.
The only marriages i have come across in 1889 with a husband called Edmund Webster are for a Emily Moorhouse in Mansfield or a Louise Collins in Sussex. But i cant seem to find these names on the births for 1862 ish in Wiltshire.

Can anyone help me solve Louises maiden name, to save me having to buy a birth certificate for one of the children?

Many thanks....
