Thanks very much Steve.

You gave me a bit on a previous post but I noticed now I'm working on 'L' that I still had some gaps.

1841
HO107 Piece/Book 42/11 Folio 4 Page 2
Civil Parish: Princes Risborough
County: Buckinghamshire
Registration District: Wycombe Union
Sub-RD: Princes Risborough
Address: Longwick
Joseph Lipscombe 34 Sawyer Y
Mary 34 Y
Ellis 8 Y
Joseph 4 Y
Sarah 3 Y
Helen 1 Y

I noticed lots of baptisms for a Mary Gilks so I was hoping her marriage names her father as I only have her age in 1841. One census where the ages were not rounded down it seems although I've not seen the image.

1851
HO107 Piece 1720 Folio 538 Page 17
Civil Parish: Princes Risborough
County: Buckinghamshire
Registration District: Wycombe
Address:
Joseph Lipscombe Head Mar ? 45 Longwick Buckinghamshire
Joseph Lipscombe 16 Longwick Buckinghamshire
Sarah Lipscombe 14 Longwick Buckinghamshire
Ellen Lipscombe dau 11 Longwick Buckinghamshire
Mary Ann Lipscombe 7 Longwick Buckinghamshire


No death for Mary 1841 - 1851 in FreeBMD.

No baptism for Ellen but this time around I hope we can find Mary's death.

Joseph is a widower in 1861 and with son, Joseph..

RD: Ampthill
Ref: Piece: 999; Folio: 79; Page: 13

So Mary's death possibly 1851-1861.

Whilst I have Lipscombe and Gilkes in my tree, they are only possible cousins/2nd cousins to yours. So, not much help to you Dave.

I can't find Mary Lipscombe in the 1851 census, which is rather annoying, along with possible death.:rolleyes:

The unfortunate thing, is that Thame Reg District, covers parts of Buckinghamshire. All I can tell you is that Mary Lipscombe was not buried in Thame.
