Ellen ROWE (née CHALK)

Postby SDV » Mon Aug 07, 2017 11:20 am

Hi

I can't find the death certificate of Ellen ROWE.

Ellen was born in 1826 in Stow Maries in Essex. Her parents were William and Sarah CHALK.

She married William ROWE in 1851 in Whitechapel.

They moved around, but by 1881 a widowed Ellen was living with two of her sons at 15 Watts Lane, Teddington.

There is a burial record for her on 23 Nov 1889 at St Mary's in Teddington, which is reasonable given the 1881 census record. However, I can't find an appropriate death certificate in any county for 1889.

Any bright ideas?

You appear to have been unlucky here. The burial record is incorrectly transcribed and should read 23 Nov 1888 ( the next entry on the page is March 1889). Looking for Ellen Rowe died 1888 and registered in Kingston district finds
Ellen Rowe 63 ? ( second digit is illegible ) Kingston 2a 193 O-D 1888
Her estimated birth year has been given as 1882 based on age 6 which is incorrect.
