Ellen ELLIS late COOK formerly WARNE(s)
I am trying to find birth and marriage details of my Great grandmother. I have birth certs for her children which all show her as Ellen ELLIS, late COOK formerly WARNE(s). The father (presumably her husband) is James Henry ELLIS a hawker.
I have been unable to trace birth details for Ellen or James Henry,nor can I find a marriage for Warne to Cook, nor Cook (or Warne) to Ellis.
Can anyone help, please?
Ellen never appears on a census and James Henry only appears from 1891 onwards.
His birth year should be 1840 and Ellens c1839. The children were all born in Hastings, Sussex and the family appeared to live in Portsmouth in the 1880s. Ellen died in Portsea in 1885 aged 46 and the death cert again shows her as Ellen ELLIS, late COOK formerly WARNE(s).
This has been a brick wall for some 10 years now! Please help if you can. Thank you
