Looks like a lot of names, and it is. Elizabeth Hogan married John Nixon in 1815 Cripplegate, then married Thomas Charles Hickey in 1840.

Estimated Birth Year: abt 1796
Gender: Female
Where born: Middlesex, England
Civil Parish: St Botolph Without Bishopsgate

There is a person missing from this list, Elizabeth's daughter Louisa Nixon is living at the same address. Thomas Hickey was with his son John and family when this was taken.

I think this is her in the 1851 census:

Name: Elizabeth Hickey
Age: 60
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1791
Relation: Lodger
Gender: Female
Where born: Marylebone, Middlesex, England
Civil Parish: St Mary Whitechapel
County/Island: Middlesex
Country: England
Street address:

Anne Maria Mellish 6
Euphane Wright 12
Elizabeth Hickey 60

I would like a death for her, or could she have remarried again??
The 1841 census says she was born in London, but I haven't found a baptism, her marriage to Thomas says her father was William Hogan, I'm not sure if I have the right one.

Many Thanks

Amanda

Thanks Geoff that looks like her, might send for the certificate.

I'm wondering if she was baptised a catholic, and do you have any idea if the London ones are available ??

Thanks Geoff, both marriages were in C of E but I think her father was Irish, I know nothing about her mother. I might never know who she was :(
