Tracing Higgins
« on: Tuesday 11 October 16 08:43 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace the parents of Bertha Ellen Higgins. Bertha was born 1848 Malmesbury, Wiltshire, England 1848, she married Francis Burdett West 1869 Farnborough, Hampshire, England. She passed away 1931 Bridgend, Glamorgan, Wales. I think her fathers name might be Isaac.

Have you found her in the 1851 or 1861 census?
When she will be with her parents?

Her father's name will be on her marriage certificate.


EDIT:
Birth Registration
December qtr 1846
Malmesbury Registration District     vol 8, page 361

Huggins, Bertha
