Searching for the death record of Eliza HANCOCK or Eliza CLARK(E) especially in the period 1832-1841 in or around Cambridge, UK. Possibly the wife of a John CLARKE, and mother of Richard CLARKE.

An Eliza HANCOCK CLARKE was the mother of my Brickwall, Richard CLARKE. I am not certain she was married to John CLARKE, so I am looking for Eliza HANCOCK or Eliza CLARKE.

Although my GGF, Richard CLARKE, in Nov 1856 when sailing for Australia recorded that Eliza was 'dead', my present 'best suspect' for Richard CLARKE is a Richard aged 10, who was in the 1841 Census for North Witchford Workhouse in Cambridgeshire and so it is possible that Eliza HANCOCK CLARKE was from that general location just north of Cambridge, IF they were the same family, and she had died before 1841.

Of course, she may have died up to 1856. http://www.forum.familyhistory.uk.com/images/smilies/redface.gif

In any event, I'm starting with 1832-1841.

Thanks in advance.
