1861
RG09/1336/F84/p13
Woodcutts Common, Sixpenny Handley, Wimborne
Prudence Chown widow 56 Stower Provert, Dorset
John Chown son 21 Handley, Dorset
Ellen Chown dau 13 Handley, Dorset.

I think Prudence's pob should read Stour Provost. There is a baptism for a Prudence Andrews daughter of Richard and Hannah 8 February 1807 in Stour Provost.

I can find son John with wife and children in Sixpenny Handley in 1871 but no sign of Prudence although according to the Dorset OPC site she was buried there 14 September 1876 aged 70.

Thanks Emeltee.

I've had no luck finding Prudence either in 1871.

I've searched female no name born 1801 - 1809 Stour Provost residing in Wimborne and nothing looks to fit.
