I am hoping someone with access to the 1871 census will be able to tell me
what is on an 1871 census record that I KNOW exists there - I don't have a
subscription to ancestry.co.uk but I can see on the 'skeleton' entries that
I can access, that there is :
SUSANNA VAUX born 1799 (so age = 72)- born somewhere in Somerset
- resident somewhere in Somerset
-no husband present so probably Widow
There is half a chance that this could be 'my' Susannah Vaux, whose
maiden-name was Susannah Vile christened 1799, and who married William VAUX
in 1818, but only the FULL 1871 entry will tell me.
Unfortunately the originsnetwork.org which I DO have a subscription for
doesn't appear to have this entry!
There is also the possibility that it is a DIFFERENT Susannah Vaux, because
I know from the 1861 census that there is a Susanna Vaux 61 years (right
age!), which looks at face-value like my one, but I know that that Susanna
had maiden-name Ostler and married a John Vaux in 1821, and is NOT the one
I'm looking for.
There's a death record for a SUSANNAH VAUX at 80 years in 1880, so I'm not
sure whether that entry is 'my' Susannah, or the other one. Hopefully the
1871 census entry will help me decide.
NB: On the ancestry.co.uk 'skeletons' for 1851 there's also an entry with a
Susanna Vaux with birth-year 1796 - sounds a bit old, but might be worth
Hope someone is able to help me with the detective work of deciding WHICH of
the two Susanna's is the one present on the 1871.
