I wonder if a Probate record might indicate widow of Richard an upholsterer.

Eldest son is also Richard, an upholsterer.

Thanks.

Hi Dave,

I couldn't see probate for Elizabeth. There is one for Richard who died in 1873. Looks like he remarried to a Franci(e)s.
 
Hi Dave,

Son Robert was he born abt 1846 Hulme Lancashire?

The family are minus Elizabeth are at Eagle Street in 1861. The probate for Richard gives an address of 15 Eagle Street wife Frances Anderson. Mary Ann Smith wife of John Smith coach painter - 8 Stowe Street Green Hays Manchester - daughter of the executrixes. Effects under £100.00

Robert is the son of Robert in the 1851 damaged census - age 7 Manchester

Unless I'm missing Robert son of Richard.

Hello Julie,

So if Eliza nee MORRIS b. 1816 Northwich and daughter Eliza b. 1856 both can't be found in 1861 then it appears Eliza died in 1858 and daughter died in 1856.

However, Robert junior, Emma and Esther have not been found in 1861 either.

I have no Richard in Australia.

Departed Plymouth 4 Oct 1863 Arrived Sydney (in quarantine) 18 Jan 1864
ANDERSON Robert 20 'Ida' 1864 Sydney and relations Reel 2139, [4/4798]; Reel 2482, [4/4986]
ANDERSON Emma 14
ANDERSON Esther 10

Father Robert b. 1815 Preston was already in Sydney and paid the deposit for his three children.
