Neithercott - Culmstock
Posted by Gerrie on 21/9/2018, 10:49 am
I've been struggling for many years to find out information about my great grandmother who came from Culmstock. The only information I have about her is from her marriage certificate (in London in 1879) and from censuses from 1881 onwards until her death in 1895. Unfortunately, by the time of her marriage she was already living in London, so that certificate doesn't give me any indication of where she might have lived in Culmstock. |
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.
