It's probably a red-herring but I have been searching for the whereabouts of
someone from York Terrace in Kensington in 1861 and can't find him anywhere
either. I know he lived there as I have Directories saying so. I don't
even seem to be able to find the address where he lived which seems odd.
It just makes me wonder if there might be some census data missing. These 2
addresses are about 2.3 miles apart so hardly likely to be on the same
census schedule but thought it worth a mention.

Thanks to Paul Hockie for the suggestion that a solicitor may have managed
Margaret's share which is why I cannot find her in Illfracombe. I have also
tried to find her sister Caroline Drake but again nothing comes up. I will
check trade directories for any solicitors in Illfracombe. Thanks to
Liverpud - I have tried to find a passport application on FMP but no luck.
And thanks to Dianne Ellis - I checked the Margaret Beesley in Widnes
Tarnworth but it is not my Margaret Bazley.
She obviously does not want to be found!!

I found Margaret in the 1871 census living in Westhampnett with her sister,
Caroline. Caroline is shown as a widow named Drake. I also looked at
Denbeigh Road for 1861 but she is not there. There are 3 families with a
Devon connection but her shares may be being managed by a solicitor. I would
look for references in Trade Directories for her school.
It would be worth looking for Caroline's marriage and husbands subsequent
death. This may be the marriage.

Hello List, I am trying to climb over a brick wall regarding Margaret
BAZLEY - b1794 Okehampton - d1878 Bognor, Sussex.
I have most of her details but she goes off the radar from 1854 - Mells,
Somerset. She is then reported in various newspapers as an investor in the
National Provincial Bank, of Ilfracombe from 1858 to 1863 when she is
reported of Denbigh Road, Kensington Park, London. I have been through the
1861 census with variations of her name etc but cannot find her anywhere.
Can anyone suggest anything else that I can try and find her through.
