Mary Bennett born Bailey 1878?
« on: Sunday 10 January 21 15:02 GMT (UK) »
Hi, can anyone help me trace the early life of Mary Bennett born 30/5/1878 in Newport Shropshire.

She married a man called Edward Bennett and lived in Newport Shropshire, so I have got her DOB from the 1939 census.

On the GRO there is a birth record in 1878 for Mary Bailey with mother's name Moulston, which is what I would expect to see, however in any census record for  Evelyn Bailey b 1884 (Mary's sister & my great nan), Mary is not living with her family. Other siblings are Thomas G, Alice, Sarah, John F & Agnes.

Is this a possible for Mary with surname transcribed as Barley - the original has a dotted i so should read Bailey

1881

James Barley 29
Emma 24
Thomas G 4
Mary 2 born Edgmond Shropshire
Alice A 1
Sarah A 6 weeks

By 1891 she could be out on her own as a domestic or similar even at such a tender age.

Thanks to Millipede and Osprey, mystery solved. I could not find family, as they were listed as Barley in 1881 census.
