I would really like to read/access more information.  Can you actually read the muster rolls on line?

No. You must go to Kew to see them.

Well we have found three of them. Looking for Charlotte and Maria now.
If they survived to adulthood they would most likely be married by 1841 census.

Goodness; don't know what I'm doing here with posts!

However, - I have found a Louisa Bell marriage in 1852 J/A/S qtr South Shields to a William Bolam. Found them in the 1861 census but nothing after that.  There is a child Elisabeth Bolam aged 17 yrs born in Tweedmouth with them.  Louisa says she is 44 yrs old so that would equate to the child born in 1817 to Richard and Ann Bell.

Nothing for William Bolam and Louisa Bolam after 1861 census.  Any help... Thanks.

Wish I knew how to post better and using attachments.

Reminder, Louisa born 1817, died 1818.
I am not convinced Louisa married to william Bolam is your girl. She is too old by 5 years. Unusual for women to age themselves. :) Your Louisa in the census was always younger than her correct birth. The Bolam daughter Elizabeth was born in 1844 Berwick, with a mother named Teague.
Your Louisa was in Hampshire in 1851, and probably there since her father’s death.

I was looking for Richard Bell, private tutor, in the 1851 census and found this family in Alton, Hampshire:
Ann Bell, widow, 65, born Newcastle on Tyne
Richard Bell, son, 36, Private Tutor, born London City
Louisa Bell, daughter, 21, born Newcastle on Tyne

I would expect this to be the mother Ann's death.
BELL, ANNE       68 
GRO Reference: 1852  D Quarter in ALTON  Volume 02C  Page 85

Already found previously.

Where did Louisa go after her mother died? Not many choices - go to live with a brother of sister, marry or find work. Her brother Richard may have looked after her and we know he moved into the London area. I don't know who her other siblings were, and who was still alive in 1852.

This will be Maria - died as an infant. Same address (Crossgate) as in other documents.

How sad they lost most of their offspring in childhood.
