It's not my enquiry but I'd looked under every possible variation I'd
found - LONSDALE, LINDSELL., etc. I'd even looked under just "William", but
didn't think to try "Wm." . Wife is Elizabeth on 1841 and Mary on 1861. I
can't find a second marriage within this period, so perhaps she just felt
like a change of name as our ancestors so often did - just to confuse us!
William is still a chimney sweep - not a grocer as apparently on his
daughter's marriage certificate. I have several marriage certs.where the
father's occupation is nothing like the reality (including a "Grocer" that
I've never been able to find).
I assume that the Eliza is Louisa Ann, looking at her age, and there is a
William born about 1844, who would match up with the William LONSDALE I
found in London on the 1871 census.
