William Ellis

August 23, 2009 1 comment

Michael Steel was asking after his great great grandfather ? William Ellis in the old blog

William being Great Grandfather of Jennifer Ellis (her indoors).

The 1911 census confirms that William did indeed marry Thomason ( the organist at the church ) and then went on to marry Isabella ( a bit of a ‘rong un’ as Aunt Peggy has described her ).

i have put the census image here :-

The census result also mentions ‘ British , parentage Irish’ ; i’m hoping someone can shed some light on whom these ‘Irish’ ancestors might be.
