Eliza Valmount married James Pye on 14th June 1877 at St James' Church, Birkdale, near Southport, Lancashire.
She was 24 years of age according to the marriage certificate and a spinster.Her father is recorded as Lionel Valmount, Manager of iron works.
Witnesses were Thomas Jackson and E A Pye. On the 1881 Census Eliza is still in Birkdale and has had twins -Reginald and Edith and a third child Robert Valmount Pye. Her place of birth reads " British subject born in France."
It is easy to see how Valmount could have been anglicised from Valmont.There are no Valmonts or Valmounts in any of the census reports for 1881 or any other year that I have checked indicating again a possible French connection.
I would first like to find any descendants of James and Eliza and secondly if she was born in France find out which part of the country she came from.
Can anyone out there help?
