unknown /Tyrer/


Elizabeth was born in Lancashire about 1829 (42 at time of 1871 UK Census) and her last name is currently unknown.

She married Thomas Tyrer sometime prior to the 1871 Census.

They had three children:

  1. Elizabeth Tyrer b.1870,
  2. Isabella Tyrer b.1872,
  3. Ellen Tyrer b.1875.

Her husband died in 1891.

Future Research Needed

It is possible, but not certain, that the following 1911 Census record is the correct one. The age is wrong, but the occupation is correct, and if she was a patient in the Workhouse Infirmary, they may not have known her exact age.

1911 UK Census UK Census 1911. Leigh Workhouse and Infirmay Children's Recieving Home, Atherton, Lancashire. RG14, Shecule 9999, Folio 18, Page 12 Elizabeth Tyrer, Patient, Widow, 77, Silk Winder, b. Leigh, Atherton.

At the 1871 UK Census Elizabeth is listed with her husband Thomas Tyrer, and their oldest child is listed as 0 years old, so it is possible they married the year before, 1870. Unfortunately, there are two Thomas Tyrer's who married Elizabeth's in that year in Lancashire. Those marriages are:

  • 1870, Manchester, Lancashire, Jan-Mar, vol 8d, Page 228. Elizabeth Aspen and Thomas Tyrer.
  • 1870, West Derby, Lancashire, Jan-Mar, Vol 8b, Page 437. Elizabeth Parr and Thomas Tyrer.

Either of these may, or may not, be correct, and I have not seen any church records which may (or may not) have the ages of the Elizabeth's in question.

Being as Thomas would have been 60, and Elizabeth 41, it is also likely that one or both of them have been married previously to other people.
