Henry Sansom (Born 1842 Mansfield)
« on: Friday 09 August 19 16:14 BST (UK) »
Henry's parents were Benjamin and Harriet Sansom (Nee Peach). I am trying to discover both his marriage and death! He was single on the 1861 census, living at 33 Wood Street, Mansfield and married on the 1881 census to Mary, living at 3 Farrands Yard, Mansfield. They had a daughter, Edith who was born22 February 1877 at 47 Sylvester Street, Sheffield (Birth certificate obtained) The mother was Mary Sansom, formerly Barber, living at 46 Orchard Street, Sheffield.
Mary was a widow according to the 1891 census, living at Court 6, House 4, Pond Street, Sheffield where she was a Housekeeper to George Gosling. in the 1901 census she was married to George Gosling (again I cannot trace this marriage!) living at 38 Apple Street, Brightside Bierlow, Sheffield and in the 1911 census living with George at 12 Malthouse Lane, Sheffield. She died in 1917 and George died in 1918.
Any help in tracing these marriages and Henry Sansom's death would be much appreciated!

It's possible they never actually married but just lived together.  It happened a lot more than we realise. 

Mary may not necessarily have been a widow either - or married to George!

Haven't found a birth registration ** for her under Edith Sansom in 1877 but there must be one if you have the certificate. 

** found it now under Sanson  :)
