Re: Eliza, Catharine and William Riley

Ah, thank you Mo, I'll take a look at William Edwards. I've noticed that the certificates for workhouse children don't provide any more info than what we see in the images. Where is Catherine? I assume aged 2 she'd be in the workhouse too unless left with a neighbour? How will we ever know. Of cours...

Re: Eliza, Catharine and William Riley

Very possible! I have yet to find a connection between Eliza and Peter and until I do I could imagine any explanation :D

Re: Eliza, Catharine and William Riley

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: Evidence at last. Peter Riley, army pensioner, died on 5 February 1870 at 15 Caroline Street, Pimlico. On 24th February Caroline Edwards gives birth to a daughter, Caroline, in the Mount Street Workhouse Infirmary and the birth certificate states mother's ...

Re: Eliza, Catharine and William Riley

Hi Avaline Your census ages line up with what I have so I think you are on the right track. I guess the only way I'll find out is to get the certificate! :lol: It's interesting that he hangs onto the Riley as though he has some physical connection to Peter Riley. The soldier is the closest I've come...

Re: Eliza, Catharine and William Riley

I saw Turks Row mentioned in old newspaper reports yesterday, totally unconnected to anyone in my tree fortunately. I haven’t forgotten about him but I still can’t link him with Eliza at that point. He’s unmarried, Catherine is born c1852 but I’ve no idea if he’s her father as well as Williams. Or i...

Re: Eliza, Catharine and William Riley

As suggested by Avaline I’m back here with the update. Death certs confirmed Eliza’s death in 1894, but I’m still wondering where she was in 1891. Peter Riley’s death certificate confirmed the details given in the burial register but nothing else. There was no sign of a wife or other relative. He wa...

It would be useful to know if they are still working through what must be an enormous pile of outstanding applications.

Quick Riley Update

The GRO has been extra speedy this week and I've had two death certs - one for Eliza Riley confirming I have the right event and that she was the widow of Peter Riley, an army pensioner, and one for Peter Riley, army pensioner aged 64 who died of decay of nature (?). Unfortunately, the death was not...
