Looking to confirm my G-G Grandmothers maiden name... my notes point to it being Bliss... but the only documentation that keeps coming up is for Hayman. She married my G-G Grandfather, Reuban Walter Emery in Somerset, England.

Born around 1852, location in England unknown, though all the kids appear to have been born in gloucstershire

My Grandfather, Ernest John Emery Born 1884.

Any assistance, no matter how small would be greatly appreciated.

EMERY, ERNEST  JOHN     HAYMAN
GRO Reference: 1884  M Quarter in KEYNSHAM  Volume 05C  Page 619

Reuben Emery married Emily Hayman in Q4 1872 Bristol

(Keynsham is about 5 miles from Bristol. Also Bristol used to be in Gloucestershire even though it's about 40 miles away and a larger city.)

There were several promising-looking Emily Haymans from Bristol and Clifton however the key was that her birthplace was given as Weare, Somerset in the censuses. This was covered by the Axbridge registration district so this is Emily:

HAYMAN, EMILY       COLLARD

Unfortunately Emily died aged just 38 in 1892

Although she managed to produce the most lopsided set of births I've ever seen (10 boys, 1 girl)
