Aw thank you all so much  :D

I  have to agree in hindsight that Emma more than likely is the boat and that Feary was her captain :(

re her background - Emma was born in Middlesex, the eldest of four and her mother died when she was 10 (1870). Emma is with the family in 1871 census and that's the last I can find of her. Funnily enough, her younger brother became a fisherman and died a young man in none other than Hull. His wife died shortly after him, both in their 30s and their children then went to live in the Home for Fishermens Children in Hull.

Thanks again to all for your input, its much appreciated,
Denise

It is a bit of a coincidence that a captain Feary arrive in Hull on a boat named Emma, it may not have been a Hull boat, could have been a port of London boat, captain Feary may have been a relative.

Was she the daughter of William James Fearey who was 46 in 1871, and his first wife Susan Elliott? There seem to have been quite a few siblings - have you tried tracing them all through the successive censuses, to see if she pops up again? Her father seems to have re-married before 1881, and as you note, she's not with them then. Try variant spellings of surname, too. It's always worth a try. Good luck.

Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)

Yep - this is my Emma alright. She is one of four and I've looked into all three of her siblings whereabouts as well as the Elliotts (her mother's family) to no avail. Every so often I run a search on Ancestry to see if something new pops up.

Thanks a million :)

Thanks Carol - yes, this is them alright. I've traced the other three to their deaths (even found a newspaper report of Susan up before court for stealing!!) but I still havent been able to track Emma down.

I've been through possible marriages but none appear to be her and I've checked her Elliott relations in Portsmouth but still no sign.

One thing I didnt do, that I've only just thought of, is to check out the Moffatt lady boarding with the family in the 1871 census... check where she ended up and if maybe Emma is with her.

Thanks again for your help,
Denise

Hi Denise,

Do you have her birth cert,was she definitely born a Fearey?
If not could she have started to call herself by a different surname.
Have you considered that she may have moved abroad?

I've just seen her baptism at St Leonards Shoreditch.

Emma Ellen Fearey.
Parents William and Susan Fearey of 10 Weymouth Street.
Father a railway guard.
Born 15 Dec 1860
Baptised 27 Jan 1861

So maybe she started calling herself Ellen?

Or using an alternative spelling of her name.

Births Mar 1861   

FAREY    Emma Ellen        Shoreditch    1c   138

There is a tree on ANC..try - not sure if it is yours.  It doesn't give any more information on Emma but there is a newspaper article about the death by accident of William Fearey.  I just wondered if there were any other newspaper reports that mentioned his family?
