KITE family Wiltshire
« on: Friday 02 December 11 00:08 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I've hit another wall.  I have an Elizabeth Sawyer, formerly Kite, mother to Robert Sawyer born in Netheravon in 1848, married to William Sawyer, residence Netheravon.  All this information is from Roberts birth certificate.  However, I cannot find anything else for Elizabeth as I am now trying to research her Kite family.  I can see her on the 1841 census married to William but how do I now go back further to find her parents/siblings?

Thanks in advance

Hi

I don't have any information of her birth year apart from the census returns.  I have been working with c1814

Hi

The census returns are the main source for birthyears - although not always as accurate as they could be

It's just like she didn't exist as a Kite. :-\

It may be that she wasn't baptised as an infant in which case there wouldn't be any info about her

However - not every entry in every parish register has been transcribed so it may be something you will just have to keep checking periodically as new records become available

Ooh, I wonder if that could be her.  Will have to investigate parents in census.  Thanks for that! ;D

Elizabeth was married to William Sawyer before 1837 so there won't be any census entry with her parents
