Alice Clara Elizabeth RESTELL

Alice was born in London in 1860 and was my gt grandmother's sister. She married Daniel Henery SWINNEY in 1885 but he died in an accident at work in 1896 and they don't appear to have had any children. I want to find out what happened to Alice after Daniel died. She is not found on any census records and I can't find a second marriage for her either.

Looking for Eliza Elizabeth FISHER born London c1827

Eliza married William Worledge RESTELL in 1848 at Hillingdon, Middlesex. They had several daughters, one of whom was my gt grandmother, Emily Maria RESTELL, and one son who died in infancy. I think I have found Eliza as a child on the 1841 census as the only daughter of John and Elizabeth Fisher but I cannot find her birth record or any records of her parents. I would love to be able to go further back in her family.


These are names from my mother's side and are from Worcestershire (Ombersley) and around London. Any information would be appreciated.


These names are my father's side of the family. They are all found around Nottingham and Yorkshire.
I would be interested in any information.

John (Jack) Whittingslow of Ombersley, Worcestershire

Jack was employed as a groom at the home of Ellen (Nellie) Pardoe, Yew Tree House, Ombersley. They caused a scandal in 1890 when Ellen eloped to Southwell, Notts, with him and they married there. They went to South America but came back after a couple of years but Ellen's family would have nothing to do with her (apart from her brother John). They had two daughters, Gladys and Annie Rachel but at some point split up and in the 1901 census Jack appears to be living with a new wife, Elizabeth Ford, in Derbyshire, with a two year old daughter. His first wife died in 1901 from cancer. I cannot find any record of the second marriage and by 1911 he is not shown on the census with Elizabeth and now two children.

I would be interested to know if anyone has any more information about Jack after his return from South America and subsequent marriage.
