She was Ellen Neithercott, born between 1856-58 in Culmstock. On the marriage certificate she gave the name of her father as William Neithercott, a Clerk, who was deceased by 1879.
Using ancestry.co.uk, find my past, freebmd and other websites I can't find any birth details which look like they might be her, nor can I find her in the 1861 and 1871 censuses in Culmstock or elsewhere. I have also researched William, but cannot find any William with a daughter Ellen.
I have just joined Devonfhs and unfortunately the birth records for that period in Culmstock are not available on the site yet. I live in London so am not easily able to go to the local records office.
I just wondered if there is anyone who has researched Neithercott or the other spellings of that surname who may be able to suggest any leads.
