Looking for birth of Elizabeth Ruddock in Stow abt 1847/8
« on: Friday 05 October 18 00:08 BST (UK) »
Elizabeth Ruddock/Rudduck, daughter of Thomas Ruddock and Sarah Ann Fisher appears on 1851, 1861 and 1871 censuses with her parents and siblings. Her siblings' births were all registered in Stow or Stow Union, but I can't find Elizabeth's birth. They were all born in Woolpit according to the censuses.

The closest I could find on the GRO is an Elizabeth Ruddock born 1848 in Thingoe but her mmn is Gill. FamilySearch has an Elizabeth Rudduck born Q3 1847 in Stow (Vol 12 P386 Line 32) which looks more likely, but I can't find it on the GRO (to see if the mmn is correct). Could anyone help please?

It seems that none of the names registered on that page in Stow for the Sep qtr have been transcribed onto the GRO. It might be worth contacting them to see if they can fix it.  :)

Thank you for your reply maddys52. I have contacted the GRO as suggested.

Could you tell me whether the page shows Elizabeth's MMN please?

Nothing shows up on the GRO search for this page at all - I can only imagine it must have been missed by the transcribers (as it does show on Free BMD). If you contacted the GRO they can correct it and hopefully you will get the mother's maiden name.
