Hi all, just a little help please.

1851 census.

Name: Emma Leaton
Age: 26
Estimated birth year: abt 1825
Relation: Wife
Spouse's name: George
Gender: Female
Where born: Sutton St James, Lincolnshire, England

Civil parish: Sutton St Mary

I found a marriage for her in 1845 a/m/j. Holbeach, Lincs. to George Leaton.

Unable to locate her in 1841, except entries in Wragby, Wrangle and Irnham.

Could anyone else find her anywhere else.:)

One is a female servant in the household of Thomas Peele, Farmer at High Street.

Hi Steve
The 1841 return I posted is interesting as the return has been made twice. Both are the same except the age of Henry was wrongly put at 65 on one, and George Leaton, although on both was only transcribed on one. He was in fact living in the same house, but seperate from the Clarke family. It looks as if there are two parishes in Sutton, St James and St Mary, and they were recorded in both. There is a note at the botton of the record indicating this but is hard to read.

Thanks guys, that's brilliant.

Just 'connected' with a rellie, who has the marriage cert for Emma and George.
Residence at time of marriage. - Long Sutton.

B/Father - Henry Clarke. Occ.Labourer.
G/Father - William Leaton. Occ. Higler.

So that's got that bit nailed.

I'll come back if I need more help, but it looks as though this line is done for the moment.
