What happened to Annie Hill?

Postby SDV » Mon Oct 22, 2018 5:23 pm

Annie Hill was born in 1877 in Worplesdon, Surrey. Her parents were John Hill, a labourer, and Rosa Hill (née Lampard).

In 1881, the family were still living in Worplesdon. By 1891, the family had moved to nearby Guildford.

In July 1894, Annie Hill - aged 17 but claiming to be 19 - married Herbert Edward BERRY, a labourer, at St Mary, Worplesdon.

After that the couple disappear. As always, any finds or insights gratefully received.

I note the witnesses to the marriage are a James Berry & Emily Sarah Berry, not necessarily a married coupe but maybe siblings / related...have you explored them ?

Apart from an outside possibility - Incoming New York/Southampton 1903, Herbert Barry aged 36 and Mrs Barry aged 30 - I can't find them after their marriage. In fact, I can't find Herbert with his parents before the marriage; do you have Herbert in any census?

Not on any census. There is, however, the marriage of his brother Christopher John BERRY to Harriet Martha BARNES in 1898 at the same church, with the same witnesses.

Thanks Ian - I didn't make the connection when I saw all the previous ticks in my FMP 'Search' boxes!
