Which leads in 1871 to

RG 10/ 5238/ 60/ 17

Union Workhouse, Cockermouth

Elizabeth Page, inmate, 38, domestic servant, Northamptonshire, Geddney Hill
William John Page, do, 9, scholar, London Clerkenwell,
Clara Elizabeth Page, 4, Northamptonshire, Eye

Elizabeth Clara Postlethwaite, 1st q 1866. Peterborough 3b, 244, mother;s maiden surname Page.

Possible death for John Postlethwaite? 1st q 1869, Cockermouth 10b, 369, aged 57 (i.e. born c 1814)

Clara Elizabeth's birthplace, Eye, is only about ten miles from her mother's birthplace, Gedney Hill.

Thanks all of you for the super sleuth research!  :D   I just need to make some kind of tree to see where it all fits in re: John Postlethwaite where he was in 1871 and when/where he died

Just realised that I failed to state that Elizabeth is listed as ‘unmarried’ in 1871.

One or both?
« Reply #40 on: Friday 04 December 20 15:03 GMT (UK) »
If someone in the 19th century had 2 occupations would it be possible for both (separately) to be written on documents.   The death certificate of John Postlethwaite records his occupation as Prison Officer which coincides with Census records etc  However, in a newspaper article his death shows his occupation as a shoemaker.  The birth of his daughter also shows him as being a master shoemaker.  I'm sure they are both the same person as everything else checks out.  Perhaps this was the norm?Any suggestions?

Have you confirmed that the shoemaker and the  prison officer were one and the same?

Presumably you've bought the 1869 death certificate for the shoemaker?

What are the exact details on the death certificate? Who was the informant?

It would be much better if this enquiry was merged with your earlier thread, otherwise folks are going to start asking questions which have already been looked at in detail in your earlier thread.

I have asked a moderator to do the necessary  :)
