Mary Ellen Derbyshire

Location
Rawtenstall
From
England
I have looked at the 1911 census for this person and found her but I can't seem to find out how many children she had I know some died. When I have looked up other people it has said how many lived and how many died was this compulsory or not to give this info. Any help would be great.

Hi Dave,

Her name is Mary Ellen Derbyshire her address 22 longfield St Blackburn date of birth 1862 three children remaining at home, James, Margaret, & Mary. Hope this is sufficient information.

Thanks
Carol
 
Hi Carol

As I suspected, Mary was 'not married' at the time as she was a widow. I think its a matter of interpretation really. It says '--the present marriage, or married woman.' If your husband was dead then you could say it's not the present marriage
