Sarah Patchett

b 1808 Hough on the Hill Lincs

m 15/05/1832 William Clayton (d 26/08/1849 Wilsford)

in 1871 she is living Wilsford with daughter Thirza (b c 1846)

I can't find Sarah in 1881 and can't find a death for her between 71 and 81.

In 81 I've just found Thirza in the workhouse in New Sleaford with 3 children.

Any help welcome.

naughty Thirza was calling herself widow in 1891. Happily she was out of the workhouse though.

Thanks Jane, that fits nicely. Wonder why it's not coming up when I search 71-81 in Lincolnshire :confused:

It's been mistranscribed as Samuel on FreeBMD / ancestry - I've sent in a correction (and for the previous entry as well).

thanks for that Kate. Looks like someone got carried away with their Samuels lol
