Eliza Hume nee Thorn


Staff member
Eliza's marriage:

Name Eliza Thorn
Spouse Charles Alexander Hume
Event Date 18 Aug 1850
Father Name Samuel Thorn
St Leonard Shoreditch.

I last have her in the 1861 census:

Name Eliza Hume
Age 38
Estimated Birth Year 1823
Relation Wife
Spouse's Name Charles A Hume
Gender Female
Where born Isle of Ely, Witcham
Civil parish South Hackney
County/Island Middlesex
Registration district Hackney
ED, institution, or vessel 11
Piece 164
Folio 58
Page number 3

They didn't have any children and I believe Charles died in 1864 Hackney.

I don't have Eliza in the 1881 census either, but I believe she died 1886 Hackney.

Many Thanks

I can't find her in 1871 but there is this possibility in 1881

8 Tower Street, Hackney

Eliza Humer 59 Widow Milliner Wilburton, Cambs.
Plus two boarders.

The surname is transcribed as Humer but, looking at the image of the original image, it looks more like Hume with a slight flourish at the end of the e. Pob definitely says Wilburton, which is only a couple of miles away from Witcham.
