Martha Trow 1881 Wales

Postby cheerily » Sat Jun 10, 2017 8:40 pm

I'm trying to find Martha Trow (nee Davies) born 1828 in Mochdre, Montgomeryshire. She married Reuben Trow in 1849. I have her on 1851, 1861, 1871 & 1891 census but can't find her on 1881 census. Reuben is living with daughter Jane in Newtown in 1891. In 1891 Martha is living with her son Thomas, separate from her husband. An article dated Dec 1893 states Martha was afraid of
Living with husband. I also found an article online dated 17 Dec 1881 re Reuben's failure to contribute to the support of wife in lunatic asylum. I'm assuming reason why I can't find her is because she is in an asylum. Would she be in a workhouse? She eventually passed away in 1899. Any help gratefully received!

Thanks. This fits in & looks as though it is my Martha Trow. I've just found mention of one of her sons dying in Shrewsbury Asylum in 1893 as well.
