On ancestry it has Margaret Walker Richardson marrying in Birkenhead Liverpool Jan/March 1897 8a 679
The only problem is It doesn't say who she married
Is their any way of finding who she married please

Who are the possible spouses?

Look for her with either surname in 1901 census...............

You will know when and where she was born..........

Thanks Reg

It is the one Margaret was born in Scotland and I got them in 1901 living in Manchester with a daughter Margaret L aged 2 born Birkenhead but nothing is showing up for them in 1911

Looks like she didn't re-marry:

Name: Margaret Walker Ellison
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1869
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1902
Age at Death: 33
Registration district: Salford
Inferred County: Lancashire
Volume: 8d
Page: 35

Can't see her 1911.

Thank you for that I thought that might have hapened
Couldn't find any of them in 1911 but Thomas could have remarried


brummiejan Report 11 Apr 2013 18:02

Just in passing:

Births Mar 1899 (>99%)
Ellison Margaret Louisa Birkenhead 8a 521

If you want to pursue this family, might be an idea to get the death cert for Margaret and see who registered it?

As it is a sibling of my ancester I'll leave it for now

So wonder if they ended up in Scotland for the 1911 census but you would need Scotlandspeople to answer that and not a subscription site
