Census details

Anecdote - Musings and Reasonings

Research note (complicated): In all census the Esther who was married to William gave her YOB as 1801. This made her 7 years older than her husband, so it is possible she was even older and fibbing. There are NO births in Lowestoft for Esther ALLEN c 1801. Her sister as the witness to the marriage confiirms to me that we are looking at the woman.

Her YOB when she was buried was 1796.

Children of Esther Allen and William Cook
