Elizabeth HARWOOD

I'm trying to trace Elizabeth.

RG11 Piece / Folio 0840 / 18 Page 1
Census Place East Molesey, Surrey, England
Dwelling Bridge Road
Name Relation Marital Status Gender Age Birthplace Occupation Disability
Edward HARWOOD Head M Male 55 Rockbeam, Devon, England Tailor
Elizabeth HARWOOD Wife M Female 55 Hampton Court, Middlesex, England
Ann RICHARDSON Visitor U Female 55 Hampton Court, Middlesex, England Dressmaker
Joshua MENHAM Visitor M Male 56 London Westminster, London, Middlesex, England Surveyor

There is a problem with that:

Edward's probate gives Elizabeth Harwood as spinster, and so does her probate.

Edward was married to Elizabeth's younger sister Sophia. I have not found the marriage yet nor Sophia's death.

1861 Elizabeth ?

1851 Elizabeth ?

1851 Edward is with spouse Sophia in St George Hanover Sq.

Edward's father is Edward HARWOOD, a tailor, born abt 1801, probably Devon.

Sophia's father is William HARWOOD, a tailor, born abt 1791, probably Devon.

Well now. Is that the same Edward? Did he marry Sophia's sister? But how do you explain the probate records that list Elizabeth as a spinster?

Father = William for Elizabeth fits.

So Sophia died before that marriage.
