Alice Louisa Williams

Hi All

I have the following information from the 1881 England census.

'Alice Louisa Williams unmarried 31 b Abberton Essex daughter of gentleman'

This means she was born abt 1850.

Looking for information on her parents.

Many thanks

Wow! thanks for these replies and so fast! >:D This is a great help.

Now I need to track down the parents of Rachel Mary Bawtree (born abt 1830 in Colchester, Essex).

I wonder if he is from the pewter company AE Williams which was est in 1779.

I doubt it Michelle, they seem to hail from Bristol originally.

ThomasWilliams 1780-1835 Bristol/Welsh Boarder

Richard Williams 1835-1865 Bristol

Ernest Williams 1865-1900 Bristol/Birmingham

Albert Williams (Williams & Day) 1900-1945 Birmingham

Thomas Williams 1945-1994 (A E Williams)


But what do I know.:biggrin:
