Thank you so much for that. I never thought to look for a name variation in Edward.

Do you think Edward would of remarried after Elizabeth as i have been unable to find a marriage certificate for them.

There are a couple of possible options for Elizabeth in marriages

Marriages Mar 1849
Bainbridge Elizabeth Belper 19 351
Harrison Elizabeth Belper 19 351
Riley Edward Belper 19 351

you would need to purchase a copy of Edwards marriage to find out which Elizabeth or purchase Abel's birth and that will give you her maiden name and their marriage details.

Possible 1841 Census for Abel

Name: Abell Riley
Age: 60
Estimated birth year: abt 1781
Gender: Male
Where born: Derbyshire, England
Civil Parish: Ashbourne
Hundred: Appletree
County/Island: Derbyshire
Country: England
Household Members:
Name Age
Abell Riley 60 Ag Lab
Frances Riley 50
George Riley 20
Sarah Hodson 0 (reads 8)

This is possibly Edwards father Abel's burial

Name: Abel Riley
Birth Date: 1775
Burial Date: 29 Dec 1855

I think the 1861 Census has the wrong name Abigail should read Elizabeth as the children's baptism that I found all have Elizabeth as mother.

I still think the best thing would be to purchase Abel or one of the other children's birth certificates to verify the details.

Great, thanks again for even more info.

ive just emailed derbyshire records so i can hopefully purchase the certificates.

You can purchase the marriage online directly through GRO UK

you have all the details to fill in what you need for Edward and for Elizabeth just her first name no surname will give you the right certificate.

You do need to login and create an account but it quite easy to follow
