I would be most grateful if someone could look up the 1891 census for me please.

I'm looking for Honoria/Honor Holcombe (nee Podger) born abt 1837, baptised June 1837 at Donyatt

Married 1857 to Robert Holcombe b Donyatt 1837 died 12/4/1885

I know they had 9 children, but I think they may have had a daughter Florence born 1883 in Ilminster. and was hoping she might be recorded on 1891 census.

Would love some help if possible.
Regards Hazel
