Elizabeth FISHWICK was my paternal Great Grandmother. In the 1881 Census she is registered as being 25 years old, living with her husband, John Lewis, their 10 month old daughter Thirza Marsh LEWIS and a boarder named Sarah Baxter at 19 Dawson Street, Skipton, Yorkshire. Her Birthplace is given as MORECAMBE, Lancashire. She would have been born in the mid-1850s. She and John Lewis had six children inc. Thirza. They were:
Thirza Marsh b.1880 Bessie (Elizabeth) b.? May b.1885 John Edward b.1889 (My Grandfather) Stanley b.? Gwendoline b.?
I've got this far and want to go a little further back. Can anyone help, please?
It is also worth mentioning that there is a family connection with a Thirza Marsh (Marsh as a surname) who created a sampler which is still in the family. The sampler is dated 1858 and is in the possession of the grand-daughter of John and Elizabeth Lewis's Thirza Marsh.
