I couldn't find George senior in 1881, now I know why. Just think, you can tell people one of your ancestors was a Muppet!

Actually when you look at the image it looks like the enumerator has put on one of those long f or s like letters which denotes a double s - easily misread as a p.

Emeltee
 
Yes. :)

The connection to my tree.

If that is the correct marriage then it throws up some questions. The marriage is on FreeREG and reads

7th January 1867 Norwich St Saviour
George Winder Mussett age 23 bachelor
Groom abode Spittlefield
Groom Occupation Butcher
Groom father George James Mussett occ Lawyer
Bride Jane Eleanor Brooks Bride father John Henlon Brooks Engineer

Thanks Emeltee.

So George changed occupations.

Looks like he took a new wife??

Right mother but wrong father on death reg for Jane.


Dave
 
In 1911 Jane Eleanor is in Leyton, Essex, still down as married. She's living with son Alfred Charlton Mussett and his family and in the columns for mariage, children etc, although it has been crossed out she states married 40 years, 4 choldren born alive, 3 living.

Can't find george in 1911 but have found a probable death

George Mussett Mar 1903 Pancras 1b 92 age 60

Somehow I don't think they divorced.

Emeltee
 
Thanks Emeltee.

I presume George is just missing from the census on FS.

Yes, 3 children - Charles stayed in England. Alfred on board and married daughter Ethel Kate on board.

1913 Ship: Orsova
Alfred Mussett 38 Stationer
Harriet Mussett 26
Alfred Mussett 5
Alice Mussett 3
Marjorie Mussett 1
Jane E Mussett 66
William Ward 41 Fruiterer
Ethel Ward 33
Kathleen Ward 6m
Doris Ward 11
George Ward 16

Dave
 
Emily is down as a widow in 1911. States she was married 9 years but I can't find a marriage which fits unless George changed his second Christian name of Winder to something else!

Emeltee
 
Thanks Emeltee.

Something is not right.

1891
MUSSETT Florence J dau 18 Draper’s Assistant Hanwell Middlesex
MUSSETT Alfred C son 15 Hat Wirers? Lambeth
MUSSETT Ethel K dau 11 Scholar Clapton
MUSSETT Ernest J son 9 Scholar Clapton

Charles = Alfred C
Ernest John did make it to Australia and he died there.
Ethel Kate is accounted for.

So Florence must have died before 1911.

I'll resume tomorrow.

Dave
 
Not that it is of any use whatsoever but there is a death for an Emily Mussett on FreeBMD

Emily Mussett Jun 1913 Poplar 1c 439 age 48
