Elizabeth Franklin B. Abt 1829 Buckden, Huntingdonshire, England

+3 votes
Good evening,

I am trying to find out additional information on my 3rd GGgrandmother Elizabeth Franklin. Here is what I have so far:

B. Abt 1829 in Buckden, Huntingdonshire, England

M. 11 July 1853 to William John Flint in St. Neots Huntingdonshire, England

Children: John, George, Susan, Esther Bethel, Robert, and John Riseley Flint.

I have no other information but wonder if her mother's maiden name was Riseley.

Any additional information would be appreciated.

I believe Elizabeth was the daughter of Jane Franklin.

In the 1841 Census, Elizabeth Franklin appears as an 8 year old, living in Buckden, Huntingdonshire, alongside a William Franklin aged 74.

In viewing the image of this Census, Elizabeth & William appear to be 'add ons' to a family headed by James Risely & possibly his wife Jane. Two sons, James, John & a daughter Charlotte are listed, Charlotte being two months old. A Charlotte Risely's birth was registered in the GRO Birth Index for St. Neots, which lists her mother's maiden name Franklin.

I have not been able to trace any baptism record for Jane Franklin, nor William who I suspect was Jane's father. No marriage record for James Risely & Jane Franklin I am afraid either.

Thank you, I appreciate it. This one has been a wall for a while.

She had a son James Risely Flint, I wondered if there was a connection there.

William may be her grandfather. I will investigate further. I had this census in my shoebox on Ancestry, so I must have wondered if it was her or not.

Thank you again.
