I'd like a look up please for Sarah in 1871 and 1891.

Did you need Henry and the other girls in 1871?

I can't find Sarah in the 1891 census though..

Sarah Hodge Pauper Widow 71 Dressmaker Retired City of London

Pob not Ottery St Mary Devon

1891 RG12 Piece 295 Folio - Page 12 Sch 60
CP Limehouse
Sarah Hodge Lodger Widow 74 Luton, Bedford

Pob again does not fit

Possibly 1881 will rule both those totally out.

I can't find either of those in 1881.

Not one born Bedford and no dressmaker born London/Middx.

She's still at same address in 1891, but no sign in the census yet :rolleyes:

E/R 1891
Sarah Force Hodge
Address: 36 St. James road

Thanks Geoff.

I can't even find the two in 1891 in 1881. The 1891 images clearly have Luton, Bedford and London for pob.

Death for Henry Hodge 1871 - 1881 not found.

Sarah a widow in 1881 and not found in 1891.

Deaths Mar 1892 HODGE Sarah 74 Lambeth 1d 427
1881 census in post #1.

If Henry didn't die 1871 - 1881 with no death found then a death after 1881?
If Henry didn't die 1871 - 1881 with no death found then a death after 1881?
Something to ponder :)

I stared to wonder if they had split and that Henry was elsewhere in England but didn't find him in 1881 census.
