I have an unconfirmed death for Evan (Thomas) WILLIAMS in 1865 in Derby so the remaining family would be,

Elizabeth, head, wife +/- 35yrs
Daughter Elizabeth 14yrs
Daughter Everlyn 12yrs

Elizabeth remained in Rugeley until her death,so I guess they remained in Rugeley for the most part.

Just not sure if the death of Thomas is the right person, but he was listed as a Brewer & Traveller, so he could have had an accident in Derby while out "selling"

oh yeah dave I forgot to tell you this,

I used the name Evelyn only because I look at the writing in the 1861 census and realized it could have been read your way and the ebelyn that they wrote on the first hand written page, my mothers first name was evelyn and it looked like it could have been evelyn so that was what made me think to try that. Sorry if I am incorrect.:) joyce

Oh dear! It creates even more work! :biggrin:
Oh well, thats the nature of this interest.

Thank you for this information. I will have to try and cross reference the new marriage between, 1865 & 1871.
Probably c:1866/67 going by Sarah's age, but one never learns to assume in this game. I will post results.

Cheers
Dave

Hi there Joyce,
Would it be possible to do the same type of search for Elizabeth Jane WILLIAMS based on the same parameters that you used for Evelyn (Ebelyn)?
Elizabeth Jane WILLIAMS, b.Armitage, approx 14yrs
she didn't get married until 1876 so I should hope that she is still living with her mother, Elizabeth WILLIAMS (nee CHARLES)
