Elizabeth Cornish was christened on the 13th of Aug 1837 in Moretonhampstead. Her father's name is James. mother, Elizabeth and I found them in Moretonhampstead in the 1841 census (transcriber error put them under Cornest). However, after that I haven't had any luck finding them in the 1851 or 1861 census (or any other information about James & Elizabeth for that matter). I don't know if they moved from Moretonhampstead, but they don't seem to have died there as I haven't found a death record for James or Elizabeth yet. Elizabeth moved to London and married a Charles Digby Wilson in 1864. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated, thank you!
