I see you're having an exciting weekend too! :-)
I've been playing around with the 1881 census. We don't know where George's
children may have placed themselves for census purposes - as we know Thorns
Cottages are a good few miles from Beaulieu - and indeed from anywhere! When my
brother was living down Thorns Lane he had a Lymington postal address and phone
I started with Eliza - er, quite a few of those. I'm not happy with a younger
sister called Elizabeth either. Could Eliza have died? Anyway there are a couple
of Elizas born Lymington - one the wife of Edward Bungay in Millbrook, and one
married to George Cooper in Lymington. You may like to check these out?
Then I had a look for young James Thorn - could he have joined the army? There
is a James Thorn born 1862 in Fort Rowner, Alverstoke. Unfortunately he gives
his place of birth as Southampton - but then so do a lot of the others! How
careful would the officer filling out the census return have been about birth
places? On the down side there were Thorns in Southampton too.
Didn't have time to do any more and don't know how much time you've spent
Bye for now,
