looking for a marriage, county unknown
« on: Friday 28 December 18 09:00 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

looking for the marriage of Ellen (Ellenor, Elleanor) Wilson (Writtle Essex 1832) and George Willson (Bearsted Kent).
I think they got married 1850-1853-ish.
I know their whereabouts census 1871. George died before census 1881.
Also know where Ellen was census 1861. But no George. He was a Gunner Royal Art. Where was he in 1851 ?

Any help grately appreciated.

Are you saying both surnames were Wilson?

Do you have names of their children?

I too see the 1871, but not the 1861: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5T3-W5N

yes both names wilson. But George's was Willson.

children: Rhoda Sarah (about 1856), Ellen Rebecca (about 1859), George Henry (about 1861) and Charlotte (about 1863).

As far as I know 4 children
