Re: Neithercott - Culmstock
Thanks for your suggestion. That makes sense as a possibility re. the lack of baptismal records, but Ellen was born around 1857 so she should appear in the civil records, but I can't find her there either. Nor can I find her with a father William in any Devon censuses until she married when she then appears in the 1881 census in London. The earliest info I have about both Ellen and her father is from her marriage certificate in London in 1879 when she states that her father is William and a "Clerk". In the 1881 & 1891 censuses she states she was born in Culmstock. She died in 1895.
