Elizabeth Turner 1790-1862

1790. Born Coventry - from 2 censuses.A baptism on 5/5/1790 St John the Baptist Coventry to Francis & Sarah Turner: this could be her, as she does call children Sarah & Francis . . TIGĀ“s tree( John Griffiths) has her born 4/10/1791 Coventry but no parents??

1813. Elizabeth Turner of Allesley married Joseph Sparrow of Coventry on 21/6/1813 in Allesley - Ancestry

Allesley 5k WNW of Coventry

Joseph & Elizabeth had the following children: first 7 baptised in Allesley - last 3 in Coventry: Ann 1813, Sarah 1815, William 1817, Mary 1819, Elizabeth 1821, Susannah 1824-1838, Joseph 1826, Jane 1828, Ellen 1831,& Francis 1833

1821. Elizabeth Sparrow was baptised Allesley to Joseph & Elizabeth on 6/11/1821-FS

1836. Her husband, Joseph Sparrow, 46, is buried in Holy Trinity Coventry on 26/4/1836 - FMP. . . Mugglestone tree- 8000 people!- has him dying 1840??

1841C. Did not think I could find Elizabeth born 1783-1793 or any of their children. Their daughter Elizabeth 1821 had married in 1840: but if she had also been included incorrestly with the census entry for her mother, Elizabeth, & siblings, then

Elizabeth Sparrow, 50, Independent, living at Browns Hill Green, Holy Trinity, Meriden, could indeed be our Elizabeth. Not sure where Edmond,10, fits in and should the 1833 baptism of Frances have read Francis?? And could George Henson, blacksmith, actually be a George Hanson descended from a brother of Joseph's mother, Mary Hanson?? Meriden ~5 k WNW from Allesley
