Thread: Who was Emily?

  1. #1

    Red face Who was Emily?

    Hi all from a tropical heat wave down-under

    I am trying to locate what happened to Emily, apparently the last-born child of William Adams and Caroline Chambers.

    William was born in 1818 in West Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.
    Caroline was born in Hammersmith in 1824.

    They married in 1840: https://www.ancestry.com/interactive...370.1512348566

    On the 1841 census: https://www.ancestry.com/interactive...370.1512348566

    1851: https://www.ancestry.com/interactive...&usePUBJs=true

    1861: https://www.ancestry.com/interactive...370.1512348566

    1871 - https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/...&rhSource=8767

    1871 is when Emily appears and I cannot find the family in 1881 despite hours of searching. "Daughter" Sarah in 1871, aged 22, was their niece Sarah Adams Piggott who later emigrated to Australia. But all of their other children are registered on the GRO indexes under Adams with the mother's maiden name of Chambers. The last one to be registered is Stephen and I can't find any matching birth for Emily at all. I wondered if she could be a grandchild or the daughter of niece Sarah?

    William and Caroline in 1891: https://www.ancestry.com/interactive...&usePUBJs=true

    Caroline died in 1897 and William in 1902.

    Any help/ideas about how to locate Emily's identity would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    William is the only one I can see too.

    ADAMS, WILLIAM mmn CHAMBERS GRO Reference: 1869 S Quarter in HENDON Volume 03A Page 126

    I wonder if the answer is as simple as a mistake on the birth registration?

    I realised why I couldn't find on GRO not in Brentford district, but Hendon, I think that is too far from Brentford?

    Is she the Emily Adams aged 27, father William, a Labourer, who married George Hubert Haynes in 1896?

    I can see George Hubert's death in 1907 but I haven't spotted them in 1901 yet.

    re the 1881 census, have you scrolled through the pages of the census in the Heston area. I am wondering as this is the free census, that the pages have only been transcribed once and used by all? so maybe a page missed?

    I think Emma is Emily, which sort of confirms that Emily no2 can't be the same parents:
