COMPLETED 1881: Emily Beatrice Melton (or Heaker/Heaken) born 1871
« on: Tuesday 01 May 18 17:56 BST (UK) »
Can any kind soul find where Emily Beatrice MELTON was in 1881?  She was born in 1871 in West Ham to Arthur Mackenzie MELTON and his wife Caroline. She may have been living with her uncle and aunt, George and Emily HEAKER (or HEAKEN) - but I can't find them in 1891, either!

(I have Emily on the 1871 census, and her subsequent marriage to Arthur Wellesey RENDELL, and then on all censuses to 1911 - it's just the 1871 entry I can't find).

Oh, well spotted!  In later life Emily referred to her aunt as her "foster mother", so I'm confident this is her.

Many thanks!
