Eliza Skinner 1901 census

Postby KayFarndon » Sun Feb 12, 2017 4:27 pm

In 1901 in Eliza Skinner's household, situated in Clarence Street, in the district of Myton, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, is my 2x great uncle, Isaac Jesney. The James and Emily listed belong to Isaac, but Alice Rodwell and Ellen Thompson appear to be attributed to Isaac as his adopted daughters. Has anyone got these girls on their family tree please, or can come up with an explanation for me? I have found a birth in 1887 for an Alice Rodwell in Rotherham, but too many hits for Ellen.

I'm just nit-picking here, but don't relationships refer to the householder? Isaac's children are listed as son and dau, immediately following Isaac himself, so that's clear. But then the names of Alice and Ellen follow - is it possible that 'adopted daughters' is actually their relationship to Eliza? - just a thought.

But back to the girls' origins. There's a possible birth on the ukbmd (Yorkshire) site, with Hull chosen as district: Ellen Thompson, born Myton, 1893. No mother's maiden name given, but if you want to risk sending for it, as you'll know, the site comes up with a ready-completed request for the birth certificate to print off.

I don't know if this helps or hinders, but familysearch has a 1901 census entry for an Alice Rodwell, aged 13 (c1888), servant, born Rotherham, in the household of Edwin Harrison, Kimberworth Road, Rotherham. Maybe this is the same Alice Rodwell whose birth you found in Rotherham?

Hello
I just like to say that Ancestry has Alice Rodwell as Alice Rodmell on it's 1901 transcription.
There is a Alice Rodmell daughter of John and Hannah Mary Rodmell nee Johnson born in Hull registered at Sculcoates Sep 1887 as Alice Maria E Rodmell.(Her birthplace on the 1901 is Hull).

On the 1891 census the family are at Hull
Hannah Mary Rodmell 43 widow dress maker North Cave
Mercy A 14 Sutton on Hull
John W 7
Alice M 3.

She's on the 1911 census st Sculcotes as a visitor with her daughter Gertrude Emily Rodmell one month.

Her mother seems to have died in Dec 1892 at Hull age 44.Dad John had died Dec 1888 age 50 so it looks as though Alice was a orphan who Isaac took in.

As for Ellen Thompson I'd go for Sep 1893 at Sculcotes.

There are two Ellen Thompson births in the Hull area in 1893:
Ellen Thompson Dec Q 1893 Hull 9d 304 (this is the one in the sub-district of Myton on the yorkshirebmd site. GRO says mother's maiden name was Griffin.
Ellen Thompson Sept Q 1893 Sculcoates 9d 244, mother's maiden name was Knowles.

Don't get too hung up on the areas for Hull births. The districts are much more fluid than some cities. Myton & Sculcoates will just be the difference between two registrar offices.

A huge thank you to all who have posted replies to my query. Not quite sure where I go from here, will have to collate it all and see what I come up with.
