It must be a different Ellen, as the one baptised on 26 Mar 1843, along with her brother William Thomas, was born 21 Feb 1843!

Interestingly, the family were living in John Street at the time of the baptisms.

PS Lookng at the 1851 record, Mary Ann Wright was born in 1841 in Billericay, Essex. So Billericay might bear some investigation.

SDV,
I’m missing your point about her being born Feb 1843! Surely if she was born then, she would have been registered in March quarter, as ianbee pointed out!

Mick - I'm being stupid. I confused the birth of Mary Ann in 1840 with the one of Ellen in 1843.

William Wright born Dunmow in Paddington in the 1851 census. Age 29. Carpenter
And he has a brother with him who is also called William! Or is it really Wilson?
A Hinson cousin is also there.

How annoying. I knew about the 1851 census entry for William and his wife Mary. I just didn't realise that William (15) was in fact his brother Wilson. If Wilson was living with William and Mary that explains how he met Sarah. It was staring me in the face.

All we need to do now is track the brothers down in 1841. Given the births of Mary Ann and Ellen I would bet on the Chelmsford/Billericay area of Essex.

Given that their mother was a widow by 1851, it would suggest that their father died sometime before 1851. If we focus on the three key areas of Dunmow, Islington and Chelmsford, I can find 10 possible deaths for their father, William Wright. Six of these are for infants in their first year of life, leaving a 54 yo who died in Islington in 1843, an 88 yo who died in Dunmow in 1844, a 24 yo who died in Dunmow in 1848 and a 43 yo who died in Dunmow in 1850. Of these the 24 yo is clearly too young and the 88 yo too old. Given that the family were no longer in Dunmow by 1850, this seems to suggest that the 54 yo who died in Islington in Q2 1843 is the most likely candidate. If this is true - and obviously I will have to order the certificate - then the family had moved from the Chelmsford area to Islington by 1843, which narrows down the search.

In 1841, Wilson would have been about 6, so presumably still living with his mother. So I need to find William (F), Mary Ann (M) and Wilson in 1841 in either Chelmsford or Islington. Should be easy, but won't be.
