Abigale Mansfield
« on: Tuesday 27 March 18 14:55 BST (UK) »
In 1839 James Peck married Ann Abigail Mansfield in Histon Cambridgeshire. Her father was recorded as John Mansfield. In the 1841 census her age is given as 20 (1821).

Can anyone see where she was born, her parents (John & ??) and her siblings?

Is she alive in 1851?  That census entry should hopefully give a clearer indication of birthplace.

I wonder why Essex is written for her in the final column of 1841 - is Essex considered a "foreign part"  :-X

Do you think it reads Essex or is it supposed to be something else like Ireland  :-\

Thanks for looking. Yes, she died 1948, and James married Alice Leet in 1950.

I didn't know about John Mansfield Peck, but it looks like he died 1848. Probably Abigail died in childbirth. Bit sad. I see what you mean re ESSEX in 1841. Usually they just put NO if out of county.

I  still can't find Abigail's mother or siblings.

A John Mansfield wid of Gt Chishill married an Abigail Bush in Saffron Walden on 4 Oct 1813. Near Cambs border and mother called abigail - could be worth a look.

There's an Abigail Mansfield baptized Great Chishall, 25 April 1819
Parents John and Abigail. Father a Labourer

Then a Thomas baptized to same parents in 1821
And a daughter Phoebe baptized June 1823. That one says John is a wheelwright (image 695)
