This will be short and sweet.
I only have 2 E surnames in my whole database of over 1000 people in our family tree!
One I mentioned yesterday (Elizabeth Dunn (nee Elliott) and today I will mention Thomas ELLERSHAW.
Mr. Ellershaw was a farrier. He married Mary Moffatt in 1888. They were both widowed and had 5 children each.
Interesting to note that they appear separately in the 1891 UK Census! She is living as head of the household with her sons but is listed as married. Her surname is ELLERSHAW but they have the surname Moffatt.
Thomas ELLERSHAW is living at another address with 3 of his children and showing as a widower even though he had married Mary 3 years prior.
He passed away in 1896 at the age of 65 and was buried with his first wife in Toxteth Cemetery. Mary (Moffatt) Ellershaw chose to be buried with HER first husband Robert Moffatt.
I wonder why they married and why they didn’t stay together? Hmmmmmm……..
