Whitmell, Iliff and Perridge Northampton
I have some confusion.My gg grandfather William Thomas Iliff married Elizabeth Whitmell sometime in the mid 1820's in Crick. From 1851 census data, she had two children Martha Iliff born abt 1827and Thomas William Iliff abt 1829 when she was 38 and 40 years old.Her husband died Sept 1844 in Crick.From the census, it would state that her birth year would be either 1789 or 1790.My understanding was that her parents were John Whitmell and Sarah Judkins.
From other sources, Elizabeth Whitmell from Crick married Robert Perridge in 1814.From some input they had from all accounts three children Elizabeth born 1818, Sarah Whitmell Perridge 1822 and William Whitmell Perridge 1825 .From the 1851 census, she was a widow with two children as stated above.From this data her birth year was thought to be 1789 or 1790.It is believed by somethat her husband diedin 1844.
How many similarities/coincidences can actually exist?
Prior to the viewing 1851 census, I felt this was the same woman married twice.But that can't be true because we have two different widows living with their grown children one in Crick and the other in Blakesley Northamptonshire in that census.
Do you have any information that could clarify this.
