    David Bradford (1839-1910) married Eliza Lake Ralph after Banns at St Mary's Haggerton on 2nd March 1862.
    Marriages Mar 1862
    Bradford, David Shoreditch 1c 301
    Ralph, Eliza Lake Shoreditch 1c 301

    Eliza/Elizabeth was daughter of John Ralph and Mary Lake born
    Shoreditch March 1841 Volume 2 page 363.

    Census 1871 Eliza L Bradford aged 30 wife RG10 Piece 634 Folio 62 Page 41
    Census 1881 Elizabeth aged 40 wife RG11 Piece 565 Folio 126 Page 3
    Census 1891 Elizabeth aged 50 RG12 Piece 374 Folio 125 Page 14
    Census 1901 Elizabeth aged 60 RG 13 Piece 507 Folio 78 Page 26
    They had 3 children in 1868, 1869 and 1877 - Eliza, David and Ada.

    However the only death reference is for
    Eliza Lake Bradford
    Age 37
    Death quarter 2
    Death year 1878
    District St. Olave Southwark
    County London
    Volume 1D
    Page 178

    So was she dead and alive at the same time, from 1878-1901+ ? Did David pretend she was still around and just added her name at census time? Did David remarry another Elizabeth secretly, born same place and same year because he figured it would save on the paperwork?
    Or is there a really sensible explanation?
    Sandra, who's still trying to sort out earlier errors and discrepancies and appreciates assistance.

    Thanks. His Dad, David, married Eliza Jeffrey at The Parish Church Of St Mary's Newington on 11 May 1838.
    So Eliza Lake Ralph died when she really did and David Junior, remarried an Elizabeth Jeffrey who was a relative of his Mum's (and his). No wonder I was confused!
