did Eliza Dunning 1825-1882 marry a Joseph Plant or Eliza Ruscoe 1826- or both

+4 votes
I have her source marriage to a Joseph  Plant in 1848 in Shifnal, Shropshire, England

Her father is Thomas Dunning 1795- and mother Jane Rigby 1794-

not entered in WIKI yet as on-going research.


but my problem is that the husband is linked to a Eliza  Ruskoe 1826-  who married 1847 in Wellington Shropshire,(cn not find souce of marriage to PLANT) and once married all children are linked to Eliza Plant so there is a mass confusion as to whom is the correct mother or if both are.

[Ruskoe-1|Eliza( Ruskoe) Plant] should be without doubt Eliza Dunning.. The family unit for Joseph plant in the 1871 Census gives Eliza's place of birth as Wellington. 

Joseph Plant    47
Eliza Plant    45
Elizabeth Plant    22
George Plant    18
Sarah Plant    14
Joseph Plant    12
Adelade Plant    7
William Plant    5
John Plant    2
William Plant    1
Jane Plant    16

Eliza  Dunning was christened 17 April 1825, Wellington, Shropshire the daughter of Thomas Dunning and Jane.(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NYP9-4B8). Eliza Dunning as you say married Josph Plant in 1848.

Eliza Ruskoe married in 1847 Wellington Shropshire, but not Joseph Plant, rather one of the other gentlemen from the BMD marriage entry, in fact Phillip Wardall...

Surname     First name(s)          District     Vol     Page

Ruskoe     Eliza          Wellington S     18    221      
WARDALL     Philip          Wellington Sal     18    221      

Joseph Plant is incorrectly registerd.


This is Phillip Wardall & Eliza in the 1861 Census living in Dawley, Shropshire, were Eliza was recorded to have been born.

Philip Wardall    34
Eliza Wardall    34
James Wardall    14
Emmala Wardall    12
Eliza Wardall    8
John Wardall    6
Thomas Wardall    3
William Wardall    2
Philips Wardall    1/12

Finally, Eliza Roskoe was christened Eliza Rosco 18 February 1827 Dawley- Magna, Shropshire, the daughter of Thomas Rosco & Ann. ( https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J95D-Y29).

Thank you, very informative, I did continue my research and defaulted to E Dunning but your help and info pushed me to check all details and update all my data as well as adding spouse for E Ruskco and finding data already listed for me to copy and attach (after adding her missing surname) so helped me and at least another person.

You are my saviour as this was wearing me down.
