Present at the death of Fanny WHittingham 1864
« on: Monday 27 July 20 23:17 BST (UK) »
Hello,
I was wondering if anyone might be able to help with making out the name of the person present at my 3 x great grandmother's death please as I am trying to make out if they were a member of staff at the infirmary, a potential friend (or even better the name of the father of Fanny's illegitimate daughter Sarah.

In 1861 Fanny can be found working as a domestic servant in Norton. In 1863 she has a daughter Sarah Whittingham, the father is not named on the birth certificate. On 21st July 1864 she dies of Typus Fever at Stafford Infirmary.

Sarah is born in a house where Fanny's sister Anne can be found in Brewood in 1861 but Sarah is a border in 1871 in Brewood staying with the White family and visiting is the illegitimate daughter of Fanny's sister Eliza called Sarah Ann (a nurse). In both cases Whittingham is mistranscribed as Whittington.  In 1884 Sarah marries Joseph Haywood in Cannock.

I know quite alot about Sarah after 1871 (and my mum met her when mum was a little girl!) but I don't know who her father was and hoped Fanny's death certificate might shed some light on this.

If anyone can make out the name I would be very grateful, it looks like either Mr Jedstall, M Jedstall, Mr J Edstall but I am not sure, the J could be a T!

Best wishes, Emma

Looks like a staff member - surname could be Tidsdale/Tidstall

Can you re-scan just the part with that name so it is larger?
