My great grandmother - Sarah ELLY born Bath 1839
published by Pat Hase on Sun, 21/11/2021 - 0:58

I have just realised that I have never found Sarah on the 1841 census.  Can anyone find her for me? She is reputed to have made the christening robe in which many of my family were christened including myself and two of my grandchildren.

She was born on the 4th June 1839 and registered as Sarah ELLEY, daughter of John & Elizabeth ELLEY formerly STEPHENS or STEVENS at 3, Mount Beacon Row, Walcot, Bath.  When she was christened at St Swithin's Church Walcot on the 30th June 1839 their surname was entered as EALEY.

In 1851 they were still at 3 Mount Beacon Row entered as ELLY.  So, where were they in June 1841?

I've found her!  The family is entered under the name HELEY and they were at 3 Mount Beacon Row.  It's not an incorrect transcription as the original entry does have HELEY as the surname. I used the census address search on Findmypast. Just shows how many variants a surname can have.
