Welsfords of London
I'm trying to help a friend trace his Welsford/Smith family.Emily (Emela in the IGI) Elizabeth Welsford married Joseph William Smith on 16 August 1863 at Old Church St Pancras in London.
Emily was Christened at Saint Benet Paul's Wharf, London, on 8 May 1842, and her parents were Samuel Welsford and Sophia Sharpe.
Joseph died in the 1870s and in the 1881 Census Emily was a newsagent in Cursitor St, London, and had four children: Elizabeth, Emily, Charles and Ernest.
Ernest went to New Zealand where he married in 1901 and had two sons, Clifford Arthur and Leonard Ernest.
We would like to know what happened to the other children of Emily and Joseph.Does anyone have any connections?We'd love to hear from you.He's visiting London soon.
