Note on Husband: Cornelius BROWN - shared note

I have attributed the children to Cornelius and Ann as the youngest child I have found - Cornelius - states that Ann Harper (deceased) is his mother on his Marriage Certificate.


At the time of his marriage to Elizabeth, Cornelius and Elizabeth (spinster) are living at 4 Brown Street, Wishaw according to the Marriage Certificate. Cornelius is an Iron Puddle and Elizabeth is a Domestic Servant. The Marriage took place at the same address. The witness names look like David Cloutier and Esther Nolden


In 1871 Cornelius is shown on the census as a Foreman. He is living in Tipton Staffordshire.


In 1891 Cornelius is listed as Neil


In 1901 Mary Ann's Daughter Elizabeth is living with this family.
