Esther Styles
« on: Saturday 31 January 15 12:01 GMT (UK) »
I am struggling to find out anything about Esther.  This what I know:
She was probably born in London c.1845.  She married John Broom in 1877.  She gave birth to Henry George in 1879, Herbert Cornish late in 1881 and Sydney John in 1889.  She died at the end of 1889.  I can't find the family at all on the 1881 census, either the FamilySearch version or FindMyPast.  There are a couple of possibilities on the 1861, but neither Esther is with her own family.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Godden in East Sussex, mainly Hastings area.
Richards in Lea, Gloucestershire, then London.
Williamson in Leith, Vickers in Nottingham.
Webb in Bildeston and Colchester.
Wesbroom in Kirby le Soken.
Ellington in Harwich.
Park, Palmer, Segar and Peartree in Kersey.

Probably no-one would. But it can be helpful to leave the surname field blank, if there is enough other information that can be entered.  ;)
