Hope family of Sledmere/Bridlington/Driffield

Post by Krellia » Tue Jan 26, 2016 3:31 am

Looking for information on the family of:

William HOPE (b:1800 Yorkshire) and Jane JEFFERSON married in Bridlington, December 18, 1820.

They moved to Sledmere and children baptized to William & Jane were:

1) Mary (1821-) (m:John RUDD 1840?) (d:1890:Bridlington)

2) William (1823-?)

3) Thomas (1826-1913) Found in 1841 census in Driffield, Nafferton, in Alice JEFFERSON's household as male labourer. Married Jane KING on May 8, 1848 in Thwing.

4) Elizabeth (1827-1864?) Found in the 1841-1851 census in Driffield in Thomas JEFFERSON's household as female servant

5) Richard (1832-1833 burial: Sledmere, Yorkshire)

I have not been able to locate William/Jane's death records or information on their parents. I am also looking for information on William (b:1823) and confirmation that Mary married John RUDD. Also, if Elizabeth died in 1864 in Driffield, why can't I find her on the 1861 census? I'm also confused as to why none of the children appear to be living with their parents in 1841. Did they both die before the census?
