Hello,

1851
Civil Parish: Weston Colville
County: Cambridgeshire
Registration District: Linton
Address: Weston Colville
(SHIPP transcribed as SHIPE)
SHIPE John, head 1801 age 50 Ag Lab West Wratting, Cambridgeshire
SHIPE Elizabeth, wife 1802 age 49 Weston, Cambridgeshire
SHIPE Edmond, son 1819 age 32 Ag Lab Weston, Cambridgeshire
SHIPE John, son 1835 age 16 Ag Lab Weston, Cambridgeshire
SHIPE Timothy, son 1838 age Ag Lab 13 Weston, Cambridgeshire
SHIPE Mary, son 1840 age 11 Weston, Cambridgeshire
SHIPE Peter, son 1843 age 8 Weston, Cambridgeshire
SHIPE Sarah, daur 1845 age 6 Weston, Cambridgeshire
SHIPE George, son 1847 age 4 Weston, Cambridgeshire
(Edmond should be Edward age 22)


From a 1855 shipping record John had died and Elizabeth was living at Weston Colville.

Deaths Sep 1851
SHIP John Linton 14 50

It's possible Elizabeth died 1855-1861 but in case she didn't...

I'd like a look up please for Elizabeth in 1861 and 1871.

Regards,

Dave

1832 SHIP Martha - ----- d. of John & Elizabeth Weston Colville *

So that confirms Elizabeth's maiden name was WATERS.
