Another mystery deepens


Loyal Member
dovercourt but born Enfield
Looking through my 2xGGF's records I was always puzzled by a strange fact.
In 1851,1861 and 1871 census his wife is shown as Susan but on the 1881 census his wife is shown as Ellen.
I tried all the things I could think of but no death for Susan or for Ellen can be found.
I then looked at the death record of Frederick in 1884 for which I had the cert and it shows the death recorded by Susan.
So she was still alive then, so why show the wife as Ellen, a mystery I will probably never answer.
Still not found a death for Susan(Ellen)

All goes to show, read all the info you already have :)
