Census details

  • In the census taken on the night of 6th June 1841 Eliza was included in the household of Charles Bacon in Park, Shipdham, Norfolk, England along with Mary Ann Barley, Martha Bacon and William Bacon. She was aged 8 years.
  • In 1851 in Ovington Eliza Bacon was included in the household of George Wright DENNEY. Eliza is a family servant to this farming family. Eliza's name is BACON.
  • In the census taken on the night of 7th April 1861, Eliza was the wife of the head of the household, William Porter. The address was North Pickenham, Norfolk, England. Also in the house was a Willoiam BACON. There is a chance that this William is somehow related to Eliza as they were both born in the same place. Note that Eliza's name was BAKING - we should check to see if either her name or William's are the same and someone just wrote it as it was said.. Their children James and Hannah were living with them.
  • In the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1871, Eliza was the wife of the head of the household, William Porter. The address was cottage, North Pickenham, Norfolk, England. Their children James, Hannah, William, Ellen, Albert and Eliza were living with them.
  • In the census taken on the night of 3rd April 1881, Eliza was the wife of the head of the household, William Porter. The address was North Pickenham, England. Their children William, Ellen, Albert and Ada were living with them.
  • In the census taken on the night of 5th April 1891, Eliza was the wife of the head of the household, William Porter. The address was North Pickenham, England. Their children William and Hannah were living with them.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: Even though Eliza's name is BAKING on both the parish marriage regoster and FREE BMD index, I believe her name was actually BACON. There are no BAKINGs born or living in Shipdham in the right time period, and her father's name is the same.
