I would like to find more info about Eliza Edwards born around 1870 in Southwark, London. I have confirmed sources that she was admitted and discharged into Westmore Rd Workhouse, Newington, London when she had Elizabeth Anne Edwards, born in 1906 and I presume ? another child in 1907.
When she was admitted in 1906, aged 36 she was a servant at 99 Lombard St, Southwark, Surrey. Can not find any BMD records at all.

Elizabeth Anne was adopted soon afterwards.

Hope someone can help!!

Hi Penguin,
Found this which maybe or not your Eliza and thought I'd follow it to see where it went...
There is a Eliza Elizabeth Edwards b March Qtr 1870 St Saviour Southwark – London Vol 1d Page 35

And 1871 census closest I can find for St Olave Southwark is this one:
Edward W Edwards 26 b Margate Kent a carpenter
Jane wife 27 b same
Emily I daug 2 b Bermondsey Surrey
Eliza daug 1 b same
Frederick T son 2 months b same
Can’t make out address – St Olave Southwark- St Mary Magdalen ED 2 Piece 630 Folio 46 page 31

1881
Edwin W Edwards 37 b Margate Kent
Jane wife 37 b same
Emily J daug 12 b Bermondsey
Eliza daug 11 b same
Frederick J son 10 b same
Edwin W son 9 b Margate Kent
Ernest C son 3 b same
31 Dam? Hill, Margate St John Baptist Kent. Reg District Thanet, Margate Ed 15 Piece 986 Folio 13 Page 20

1891 census Margate Kent – NO Eliza
Edwin W Edwards 46 a Widow b Margate Kent a builder
Emily J daug 22 b Bermondsey
Frederick J son 19 b same a carpenter
Edwin W son 18 b margate Kent a grocer’s assistant
Ernest C son 13 b same
40 Ethelbert? Rd Margate Kent, ED 16, Piece 728, Folio 95 Page 15

Father Edwin Warren Edwards died Dec qtr 1891 Thanet Kent Vol 2a Page 568

Marriage for Edwin W Edwards Dec qtr 1865 Thanet Kent Vol 2a Page 1429 to Jane Jarrett

Jane Edwards nee Jarrett death June Qtr 1883 age 39 Thanet Kent Vol 2a page 535

Looks like father Edwin remarried just before he died in 1891 Dec qtr Tanet Kent to Jessie Mary Emptage.

Following the rest of the family..
siblings.
Frederick John Edwards married Ada Nellie Eastland Dec 1896 Thanet. - His Will says died 7 March 1944 leaving probate to Ada Jeanie Sankey wife of William Clifford Sankey and his daughter Lillian Louise Edwards spinster 1248 pounds 15s 6d

Edwin Warren Edwards b 1872 Margate Kent married Dec 1898 Thanet to Harriet Rosina Clark died 1931 Thanet Kent

Ernest Charles b 1877 married March qtr 1902 Thanet to Sarah Susannah Miller and he died 1951 Thanet – Will says died 22 Oct 1951 probate to Sarah Susannah Edwards widow and son Ernest John Edwards Architect 2542 pounds 19s

Just can't locate Emily J as there are a few - 1 shows in London as a servant on 1901 and a few possible Marriages.

Did you find your Eliza on 1891 and 1901 census?

regards

Thanks for all of that. I will be looking into it further. This is my great grandmother and Elizabeth Ann was my grandmother, like I said who was adopted.
But I have been trying so hard to find out more about this lady, for 3 years now! I did however, recheck one of the four records I do have and found she didn't have another baby. (London,England,Poor Law and guardian record-1430-1930 Pg 301) She was just admitted for some reason but don't understand the discharge order.

Anyway thank's for that. Very much appreciated.
