Hi there,

I am looking for the wherabouts of Lavinia Rabbets.
She was born in 1858 in Shaftesbury, Dorset.
In 1861 census she was living with her mother Mary Ann, sister Juliana and brother Frederick Charles in Bridgwater, Somerset.
Her mother died in 1865 in Frome and I do not know where she went until her marriage in 1880 to William Henry Edwards in Fordingbridge.
In 1871, her brother was living with his father Charles, and Juliana had died shortly after the 1861 census.

If anyone can find her in the 1871 census, I would be most grateful.

Kind regards
Jackie
