On freebmd she is written as 'WILKINSON, Frances Mary'

On census I have seen she is always written as Frances

1851, 1861, 1871 census states she is born in Rearsby Leicester

1881 census she is 63yrs and place of birth shows as Birstall, Leicester,

She is living in Rearsby in all census 1851-1881

I can't find a Baptism for her, so don't have parents names, born c1818...does anyone have access to Rearsby or Birstall records?

I have not seen the 1841 census, which may be a start as she married in 1842, so hopefully will still be with her parents, if anyone could look.

TIA

Hi Foxy
I think I've found the answer

Marriages Jun 1842

ALLSOP Robert Leicester 15 105
BRADNEE Walter Leicester 15 105
CHAMBERLAIN Thomas Leicester 15 105
CHAMBERLAIN William Leicester 15 105

FORSELL Anna Leicester 15 105
FOWLER Mary Emma Leicester 15 105
SHARPE Elizabeth Sumner Leicester 15 105
WILKINSON Frances Mary Leicester 15 105
WILKINSON Isaac Leicester 15 105

just got to work out which Chamberlain (as he's Robert on 1851 census)

....and

Marriages Dec 1842
CHAMBERLAIN Robert Melton Mowbray 15 365
GEORGE Catharine Melton Mowbray 15 365


and he is Robert in every other census.....I think Thomas and William could be mine as some of the Chamberlain's moved to and married in Leicester.....

William Chamberlain is likely to be Robert's older brother and Thomas Chamberlain ( cousin of William & Robert) married Elizabeth who was from Rothley...they are still together in Rearsby in the 1881 RG11 Piece/Folio: 3155 / 64 Page Number: 2......................told you my brickwalls are strange ones:biggrin:

I wonder if Frances Mary 'Wilkinson' was married prior and Wilkinson is not her maiden name:confused:....she was born is c1818...I have found this but think even if she used her middle name she would possibly be too young to marry in 1833, at only 15 years old

Samuel Wilkinson
Mary Green
Date: 28 Jul 1833
Marriage Place: Birstall,Leicester,England

Hi Foxy
Samuel and Mary were still together with family in 1851
