Hi. I am looking for a Samuel Sendell and wife Elizabeth. I think they would be in the Sunderland area. Elizabeth was born in Sunderland in 1836. I would be very grateful. Many thanks

The 1871 census RG10/5017 p 26 has Elizabeth Sandell B 1836 Head of household living in Sunderland, working as Provision Dealer.
There is no trace on the 1861 census.
There is a marriage record for 1857 for a Samuel Sendall and possibly Elizabeth Prince.
Hope this may be of help

Thank you. My elizabeth was Elizabeth Prince. The census didnt say if she was a widow so perhaps Samuel is out of town. Many thanks
