    In this house along with William & Hannah Roberts and their children who were
    related to the Snelson family lived :-

    Annie Snelson granddaughter unm 17 Domestic Servant Chester

    The return states that Jane (?) Snelson, the head of the family, was temporarily
    absent at the time of the census. This may mean that Jane was Annies's
    grandmother, and therefore the grandmother of William & Hannah Roberts' two
    children. She may therefore be Hannah's mother perhaps making William & Hannah
    the Uncle and aunt of Annie ?

Ellen Snelson1

F, #1646, Deceased, b. April 1885
  • Consanguinity: 2nd cousin 2 times removed of Adrian John ("John") Snelson

Parents

Main Events

  • Birth: Ellen Snelson was born in April 1885 in St. Mary Parish, Chester.
  • Christening: Ellen was christened on 9 May 1885 in Church of England, St. Mary's, Chester.
  • Biography: There may be a problen here as Ellen was born in 1885, the same year as her brother Henry, according to Richard's records. Richard also says that William Snelson ( 1849-1900 ) married twice. Even so, the close proximity of these birth dates is suspicious, unless of course this was the cause of the second marriage !

    More ........ St Mary Baptisms ( Footnote Ref 1654 ) record 21 May 1885 Ellen dau of William and Eliza Jane Snelson, Joiner, Pycroft Street, Handbridge PLUS 11 July 1888 Ellen dau of William and Eliza Snelson, Innkeeper, Grosvenor Arms, Handbridge. What is going on here ?
