Hi all,

Need a bit of help to decypher surname of Elizabeth off of original record.

Elizabeth ?? occ. female labourer.
Born.- Buckinghamshire. 1828

Civil parish. -Illmer. (district8) eight
Hundred.- Ashendon
County. - Bucks.

Listed with:-

John Greene. b.1826 Buckinghamshire

The transcribed age is given as 13, on the original it appears to be 19. Any guidance please.
She is on the bottom of the original page.

Hi Steve,
Any chance of a little more info please as there are several James greens in Bucks in 1841. Can you pinpoint the page ?

Thanks Gwen+MM.

My theory to the name. Could it be Elizabeth Mary Ives.

The I from the place name of Illmer looks very similar to the I in Ives ?
But the J's in Joseph, James and John, above her, have a long 'tail', so to speak.

I have been looking at this for ages, and writing down every conceivable name.
I found this entry by accident, by looking through all the census for Illmer (not that there's a lot to look through) and just wondered.:rolleyes:

Hi Steve,

See what you mean, he drops his J down under the line, so it cant be Jones.
Looks like Ives as well. I cant make any other name out of it. The first letter could be I, but it could also be S, except no name comes out of a word beginning with S.

Hi MM,

I think 'Saw' could also be a candidate. There are a few Saw names dotted around that area.
Will put Elizabeth to notes, and will have to wait and see what pans out.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Steve

After a lot of scrutiny with the magnifying glass and comparison with the name of the village we think it could be ELIZABETH MAVIS IVES.

I hope this helps.

Gwen and the other half!! :D :2fun: :biggrin:

Thanks Gwen + the other half:biggrin:

I will put her into notes, as i said. She could be my G.G.Aunt but I have nothing to confirm this.
My G.G.grandfather was in the same area, but I did not find my G.G.G grandfather until 1851, and his name was transcribed as James Jass.(Ives)
Thanks again.
