The Luff family.
« on: Tuesday 26 November 19 15:58 GMT (UK) »
Hi Ive recently found out that I have distant relatives from Guernsey, My great great great grandmother came from there and she was part of the Luff family. Any information would be greatly appreciated.  :)

And what was your ggggrandmothers name?  When was she born and who were her parents?  The 1841 CI census has 6 entries for that surname

OK Her name is Matilda Mary Luff born 20th February 1824 I'm not sure who her parents were I'm working on that one.

There are a few possible baptisms for Richard in that age range on Family search but without knowing his actual birthplace in England it's difficult to pinpoint the right entry

Who did Matilda marry?

Looking at the nephew Henry Wilson in hopes of finding where Richard was born.  Given Matilda was too young to be his sister I think she was probably the daughter of Richards brother.  Henry would be his great nephew.

Births  HENRY  RICHARD LUFF WILSON - mothers maiden name Luff     
March qtr 1845  SAINT LUKE MIDDLESEX  Volume 02  Page 315

Marriages March qtr 1844   
LUFF    Matilda Mary         Brentford    3   12    
Wilson    Henry         Brentford    3   12

It was 19.2.1844 at Isleworth but no other info shown on Family Search

Deaths Dec qtr 1844   
WILSON    Matilda Mary         St Lukes    2   258 she was 21yrs old

Henry was probably born December 1844 but if his birth was registered after Christmas it would fall in the first qtr of the following year
