Henry Elliott Sydney Australia Feb 25, 2005
I am trying to solve a mystery concerning my paternal great grandparents.

His name was Edwin Elliott. He appears in the UK 1881, 1891 and 1901 censuses living in Kingscote and Tetbury respectively, Gloucestershire and working as a road surveyor. His progressive ages, 44, 54 and 64, put his birthdate as 1836/7 at Newington Bagpath. He also appears on his son's birth certificate in April 1876 and marriage certificate in 1905.

In the 1851 census there are 2 'Edwin Elliott's. One is only 10 years old, living with parents Thomas and Susannah Elliott, living and born in Tetbury. (Birthdate 1841).

The other is 14 years old, living and born in Newington Bagpath but with parents Robert and Alice Elliott.

As I believe that his parents were Thomas and Susannah, this is confusing.

His wife was Charlotte (nee Whyman). She alo appears on the above censuses aged, 43, 53 and 63 and born in Bath Somerset in 1837/8. I can find no trace of her or her family in Bath and no Charlotte Whyman (or Weyman or Wyman) was born in ths period according to the GRO.

I can find no marriage details or death details for either.
