Julia Galer born circa 1824 Keinton, Somerset, England
« on: Sunday 25 October 20 07:03 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking for the parents and birth record of Julia Galer. She married Frederick Pitts in 1841 at Keinton, Somerset, England  as per the England & Wales, FreeBMD Marriage Index: 1837-1915 and they are on the 1841 and 1851 Census

I have been through the entire 1841 and 1851 censuses for that village and there is no family with a name similar to Galer.

They later migrated to Australia and on the death records in Australia for her children her maiden name is stated as Gailer or Gala. On some trees in Ancestry her maiden name is spelled Gaylor.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Rosie. So given her surname it is possible that Robert Norris married her widowed mother and is maybe her step father?

Certainly the census details are my lot. Not so sure of the births though. They don't quite fit.
