Looking for Leonora in 1911 thanks.

Hi Dave,

I can't find a Leonora but have found this

RD14-PN8015 RD149 SD1 ED2 SN106

Lower End, Thornborough, Bucks

John Uriah Morton 55 Brackley, Northamptonshire
Fanny Morton 49 wife Middle Barton Oxfordshire

several children then

Nora May Morton 6 grand daughter Thornborough, Bucks

Could this be your Leonora?

Thanks Emeltee.

That looks ok not that I have any knowledge of the grandparents.

Seems only Leonora came to Australia.

Thornborough is in the RD for that birth reg.

I can't see a birth reg in Berkshire for Frances 1884 - 1888.

Checked other counties and now wonder if Twyford is correct.
Just checked back in the Censuses and in 1891 Frances M Morton was living with parents John and Fanny in Lower End, Thornborough. Her birth place is given as Salford Oxfordshire

Marriages Dec Qtr 1884
Morton John Uriah Woodstock 3a 1237
Walker Fanny Elizabeth Woodstock 3a 1237

Oxfordshire here too.

Thanks Emeltee.

I'd say we have the right one in 1911.

Have to wait until next year for the death to be added to the index.

Can't be in two different cemeteries so not sure what is going on.
