Hi all.

Can this lady be found in the 1851 census. She dies and was buried, 10 Mar 1861 @ St Mary's, Princes Risborough, Bucks.

She married Abel Rogers in 1853 @ Monks Risborough, Bucks.

Abel Rogers, re-marries an Elizabeth Wild in 1864.

1841, she is with parents Joseph Fletcher, and Hannah(nee. Elbourn), in Wendover, Bucks.

Just the 1851 census look up please.(at the moment).;):)

I can only find one Elizabeth Fletcher and she was born 1828 and is married to a Samuel Fletcher so not the one you are after.

Hmmm. Something doesn't seem right.

Only one Elizabeth Fletcher baptised around 1826, in Wendover. Elizabeth daughter of Joseph & Hannah FLETCHER of Wendover, Carrier.

Then there is this....!

Marriage 15 Jun 1849. by Banns
Joseph X BRACKLEY, aged FA, Bachelor of Wendover, Labourer son of Province Joiner, Labourer
Elizabeth X FLETCHER, aged FA, Spinster of Wendover, Bonnett Sewer daughter of Joseph Fletcher, Carrier
Witnesses - Joseph X Rogers Isabella X Holland.

This marriage seems to bear out, in the Census returns, and burial for her....
10 Jan 1896. Elizabeth BRACKLEY, aged 77 of Wendover.


So I think I have the wrong Elizabeth Fletcher.:confused:

Again, I'm not sure if this Elizabeth Brackley/Fletcher is right.........a burial year of 1896, would make her born c1819. But as always, baptism year is not the birth year.
That's if.....it's the right burial.:confused:

I'll leave this for now, and see what BucksFHS comes up with.:rolleyes:

In both 1881 and 1891 Joseph and Elizabeth are living in Paddington, London, both born Wendover. In 1901 Joseph is still in Paddington, a widower now born Denholm.

Deaths
Elizabeth Brackley Mar 1898 Paddington 1a 47 aged 68 (yob 1830 - She gives her age as 62 in the 1891 Census)

Joseph Brackley Sep 1903 Paddington 1a 16 age 75 (yob 1828 )

Joseph's yob should read 1828. When I posted my reply the end bracket seems to have come up as a face although it is a bracket in the original

EDITED: A space is needed between the 8 and the bracket, or you'll get the 'cool' smiley. 8)

Ok. I think I've sorted out the Elizabeth Brackley burial, in 1896.

5 Sep 1819 - Elizabeth daughter of John & Mary WELLS of Wendover, Labourer.

Marriage - 23 Mar 1838. by Banns
James(x)BRACKLEY, aged FA, Bachelor of Wendover, Labourer son of David Brackley, Publican.
Elizabeth(x)WELLS, aged Min, Spinster of Wendover, Plaiter daughter of John Wells, Labourer.
Witnesses - Matthew Brackley & Ann(x)Brackley
Bride with consent of father.


So, that's eliminated this Elizabeth Fletcher of Wendover.

Thanks MLT.
