I think you are correct, Medpat. The marriage shows Elizabeth as a widow. Her residence at the time of marriage is given as Trowbridge Street.This is the same address as recorded for the baptism of son Edward Shephard Morrell in 1875 (parents Elias and Elizabeth).

If Edward is Elias's child we have from conception to the marriage to track Elias.

Off out now will check back later. Have fun.

Baptism of Edward Shephard Morrell was 5 Sept 1875 but gives date of birth as 24 July 1872. The record does not state that Elias was deceased.

Still unable to see a death for Elias between 1871 and 1876.

Seems like I had the wrong Elias. The one certainty is that Edward Shepherd Morrell born 1872 has mother as MMN Smith. Shepherd is a family name, all the first born are called Edward Shepherd. Needs a bloody shepherd to sort it all out! There six of them, my grandad was Edward Shepherd too, born 1897.
So its still Elias but not the manchester one 1844 who died 1857. Bugger!

Really appreciate this.

Daughter Elizabeth Delves born Birkenhead 1882 and in 1901 3 youngest on their own so this is a possible death age slightly out according to census as born 1844

It all adds up, thanks so much. The spellings of Morrell though, astonishing.
No sign of Elias' death still? I shall keep hunting.

The Morrells were Butchers and or slaughtermen too, as were quite a few of other relatives.
There was a huge lairage in Birkenhead at the time, built near Cammel Lairds and was a huge draw in itself as well as the new docks. The town expanded massively at this time. No sign of Elias though, strange really...No one knows him now but its like a mystery now. What happened to Elias?

Thanks for everything, all the other info slotted in and solved a few questions I had.
