Robert Wilkinson Edgmond Shropshire
« on: Saturday 17 November 18 16:53 GMT (UK) »
Robert Wilkinson was born circa 1822. In the 1851 census he was living at 138, Edgmond, Shropshire, birthplace given as Drayton, Shropshire. Living with his wife Ann aged 27 and four children Sarah 8, Mary 6, George 4 and Jane 1.
 In the 1861 census he was living with his wife Ann aged 38 and children George 14, Joseph 9, Eliza 5 and Harriet? 2 at 115 Edgmond, Shropshire however his birthplace is given as Edinburgh, Scotland??
He probably married his wife Ann Pruden on 11th December 1843, a Edgmond.??
I have quite a detailed newspaper report of his death on 10th November 1863,caused by excessive drinking of brandy and referring to him as a discharged soldier??
My questions are: where is he in the 1841 census, Shropshire, Scotland or elsewhere?
                           Why the differences in birthplace?
                           Can anyone shed any light on a military career
Many thanks

Welcome to rootschat

The marriage certificate would give an occupation for him and hopefully details of his 'abode' and his father

In reply to AVM228 regarding Elizabeth Wilkinson 1864- 1866, I found birth and death registration but is the name unlikely bearing in mind she had a sister Eliza born 1856?
Many thanks

Not really.  People often treated them as completely separate names.  Relatives of mine were so unimaginative that they named consecutive daughters Elizabeth and Eliza, less than 2 yrs apart (both survived).
