View Full Version : GRO no match with info from Ancestry

29-04-19, 16:41

I have tried finding a death for William Ebsworth. There are a couple on Ancestry so thought I'd try and work out which it could be using the GRO (to show the age at death). However, there is one that has details (volume/page) but doesn't show up on GRO when I search - any ideas?
Thanks :)

Does it appear on Freebmd??

If it does, use that information to try to find it on GRO Index

if you post the info on here, can have a look for you.

Could be mistranscribed as EPsworth?

if you post the details then we could all look?

I assume the death is before 1866 as all the ones after that have the age on free BMD. From 1838 to 1858 there are 17 deaths though, so without at least an area I have no idea which two you mean on Ancestry.

Sorry, have been busy!
William's details are b.1765 I would assume in Berkshire (haven't found his birth/christening either). Married his wife Elizabeth Simms in Chilton 1792. My ancestor, his son John Ebsworth was b.1803, West Challow. I have a fair few I'm struggling with so any help appreciated :)

Thanks :)

Is the one you can't find on the GRO from 1852? If so then this looks like it - it's on FreeBMD as Ebsworth, and the age is broadly right:

GRO Reference: 1852 D Quarter in WANTAGE Volume 02C Page 188

If this is the right man then the only one I can find in the 1851 census is this one:

Chapelry of West Challow, Wantage, Berkshire
William Ebsworth 83 Ag Lab born Ashbury, Berkshire
Sarah 55 Wife born West Challow
Jane 27 Daur Dress Maker born West Challow

William Ebsworth married Sarah Hawkins 12 Nov 1822 West Challow

Them in 1841 at West Challow?
William Ebsworth 70
Sarah 40
Martha 30
Jane 15
Thomas 14

All born in County except Jane who is marked as Scotland, Ireland or Foreign Parts
