Where is Amelia Whitehead nee Pedgrift after 1851
« on: Friday 18 December 20 22:31 GMT (UK) »
Joseph Whitehead b Wandsworth 1815 & Amelia Pedgrift baptised 20.1.1822  Norfolk married 1841 Surrey

The couple are found in 1851 - no children. HO107/1568/124/5.  Amelia’s birthplace Norwich

1861 Joseph is shown as married but no Amelia & no children.  RG9/339/79/28

1871/1881 - Joseph is now with Elizabeth Whitcombe & has 3 children by her - no marriage.  Elizabeth dies 1883 & Joseph 1899.  Elizabeth was single in 1861 so if Joseph was a widower there wasn’t anything to stop them marrying.  Their children were all registered as Whitehead.

There is an 1853 death in Marylebone but that Amelia is 50 per GRO online.  Her burial record shows her as 51 which is clearly written and has an address in Marylebone.  However - I would be happier if I could find a matching 1851 entry for her to rule her out as being Amelia b 1822. 

Can anybody find Amelia Whitehead b 1802 on the 1851 census in the ?? Marylebone area?

Can anybody find Amelia Whitehead nee Pedgrift b 1822 Norfolk after 1851?

Brilliant Milliepede.  Thank you so much.  I can now definitely rule out the 1853 death as the 1851 address is the same as that on the 1853 burial record.  I am helping a friend who has just resumed her FH & is having a problem finding Amelia.

Doesn't help except to also confirm:

"On the 9th inst. Miss Amelia Whitehead, of Milton-street, Dorset-square."
The Standard, Tuesday,  Oct. 11, 1853

The only other shred, and don't know which Amelia it is, is a workhouse entry 14 Feb 1852 Marylebone but is that the name of the child born?

It says mother from w/house and lying in ward. 

No mothers name on the birth registration.

Sorry - only just got back in.  Yes - the WH entry is an illegitimate child.  My friend had been led to believe it was Amelia hence the 1853 death which has definitely been ruled out

Son Joseph Whitehead was b Dec qtr 1861 Newington - mmn Whitcombe

Thanks for the info re the son born 1861. 

Still hunting for the right Amelia.  There was a hint to an Emily Whitehead widow 66 born Norwich living Westminster, think it was 1891 census, but you have probably ruled her out already. 

Hmmm  :-\
