George & Elizabeth KEHLER
« on: Sunday 29 April 12 18:17 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace George and Elizabeth Kehler and wonder if anyone can help me please.

They had 6 children –Catherine (1849), Margaret (1851), Elizabeth (1854), George (1856), Louisa (1859) and Alice (1863)

I can find birth records for George jnr, Louisa and Alice but not the older 3.

I can find the family on the 1861 census in Oswestry and I have George jnrs birth certificate from 1856 and they were in Oswestry then, but cant find any records on them before then.

Some census records say George and Elizabeth came from Germany, others say Oswestry.  There are a few different variations of their surname (Keelan, Keeley, Kehler, Kebler, Kehlor and Keeler)

Can anyone help to find this family before 1856 as I am going round in circles with it now.  Thanks in advance.

Hi, yes that could be them couldnt it, thank you!  Is there any way to find out when they came to the UK?  They are so difficult to trace with all the different spellings of their surname...
Thanks, Sharon

There's an Elizabeth Kehler birth register Oswestry district but that's in Mar 1867 - too late for yours but maybe a relative?

Thank you very much for your help :)
Do you know if it is possible to find out when they came to the UK, or is the information I have too vague?
