Mary b. abt 1807 dau of John & Mary LISTER - parents dead by 1848

Don't know if they are in 1841 census.

Mary married a John TAYLOR - date and place unknown

Samuel TAYLOR b. abt 1833 Cambridgeshire

Deaths Sep Qtr 1840
TAYLOR John Linton 14 55

===
John Howard & Elizabeth Webb
4 Dec 1829 Carlton Cum Willingham, Cambridge
Batch: M130821

Births Sep Qtr 1843
HOWARD Catherine Linton 14 75

Deaths Sep Qtr 1845
HOWARD Elizabeth Linton 14 48

So between 1845 and 1848 Mary TAYLOR nee LISTER married John HOWARD.

Second marriage for both. I can't find it in FreeBMD.

John TAYLOR died 1840.

By 1848 Mary TAYLOR nee LISTER had married John HOWARD.

Perhaps that's the wrong death for Elizabeth HOWARD or Mary remarried before Elizabeth died. ???

We need the mother of Catherine born 1843.

Hi Dave,

I think that the only way you will find out who the mother of Catherine is, is
to send for the birth cert. I have looked for her birth/baptism and can't find anything, nor can I find her anywhere in the 1851 Census.

Hello Emeltee,

Thanks for looking.

According to the shipping record Catherine's mother is Elizabeth.

1841
HO107 Piece 71 Folio 8 Page 10
Civil Parish: Weston Colville
County: Cambridgeshire
Registration District: Linton
Sub-RD: Balsham
Household Schedule No: 870
Address: Finckley Gate, Weston Colville
TAYLOR, Mary F 30 Publican Cambridgeshire
TAYLOR, William M 10 Cambridgeshire
TAYLOR, Samuel M 7 Cambridgeshire
TAYLOR, Nancy F 5 Cambridgeshire

Is Mary listed as married or a widow.

Thanks,

Dave

Marriages Sep 1847

HOWARD Mary Hartismere 13 645
TAYLOR John Hartismere 13 645
Hello dave,

Not sure how that would fit in.

From shipping record:

Catherine 4 Calton Cambridgeshire John Howard Elizth. Webb mother dead
Richard 2 Hundon Suffolk Parents on board
Births Mar Qtr 1846
Howard Richard Risbridge 12 405

So we have death of Elizabeth in Sep Qtr 1845 and Richard born with mother as Mary according to shipping record. That narrows the range for the marriage.

Just a thought but, owing to the fact that no marriage details can be found, perhaps they never married. Also are you sure you have the right Mary?

Emeltee
Yes.

HOWARD
John 40 Labourer Brinkley Cambridgeshire Richard & Mary mother living at Little Tallow [Thurlow] Suffolk CofEng Read None Good None
Mary 41 Housekeeper Weston Calvert Cambridgeshire John & Mary Lister both dead CofEng Read None Good None
