My Great-great-grandparents are Benjamin Horner (b.April/May 1832) and his 2nd wife Jessie Williams (b.12 Dec 1843). They were married on 23 Feb 1873 in Llanfoist, Mounmouthshire and had seven children.
Their first child Emma Horner was born around August 1873 and appears in the 1881 census living with her parents in Bristol. Benjamin’s children from his first marriage and Jessie’s daughter from her first marriage are also on the census record. After 1881 I cannot find any more records of Emma, either marriage or death but she does not appear on the 1891 census with the rest of the family.
Clifford Horner was the youngest child of Benjamin and Jessie born sometime in 1888 in Bristol and only appears on the 1891 census record with the rest of the family. Once again I cannot find any records relating to his birth or baptism or death. I have tried Ancestry, Findmypast, GRO and FreeBMD websites to find this information but have had no joy. Please can you give me any help or point me in the right direction to find these missing bits of information for Emma and Clifford Horner.
there’s a marriage of Emma Horner age 24 father Benjamin an engineer to Paul Franz Joseph Anger age 31 hotel keeper wits William Benjamin Horner on 25 Sept 1897 St Luke Kentish Town (Ancestry transcription has St Luke, Oseney Crescent, Camden, England)
and 1911 census has Paul Anger 44 variety agent wife Emma 37 born Monmouth with aunt Elizabeth Williams age 71 b Monmouth at 44 Woodlands Gardens Muswell Hill N, Hornsey, Middlesex
nothing for Clifford … I wonder whether the surname has been mistranscribed
oops the aunt should be Emma Williams
and in the 1891 census she is at Patshull Road, St Pancras, London & Middlesex, with Emma (transcribed on FMP as Harner) age 17 and Paul Anger 24 clerk commercial with no places of birth
