    Default Phipps family from Northumberland

    I'm trying to find information on the Phipps family.

    What I have so far - Elizabeth Phipps b. abt 1803 in Powburn, Northumberland, Eng. married Matthew Plews on 16th Dec 1838 in Newington, Edinburgh, Sct. She was his 2nd wife and died on 5th March 1865 in Inveresk, Midlothian, Sct aged 62. According to her Death record, her parents were George Phipps (a mason) and Elizabeth Moah/Mouh (can't decipher) both deceased before 1865.

    I would like to find out any information on Elizabeth and her family - parents, siblings, grandparents, marriages, births, deaths, dates, places, etc.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Sandi

    Hi,
    I'm really after information on the Phipps side of the family - Elizabeth and her family. I already have the Plews family in Yorkshire and Scotland covered. Thanks for the above info.

    Regards,
    Sandi

    Yes I found that as well, big difference in dates 15 years, as you say "Elizabeth Phipps b. abt 1803 in Powburn, Northumberland, Eng" also this is a Christening date, so she could have been born at any time before then.

    and I think Powburn, is quite a few miles away from Tynemouth although both in Northumberland.

    Just googled Tynemouth to Powburn and on today's roads it is about 42 miles so would have been a little bit longer in these times. (Just thinking outside of the Box")

    Re Elizabeth Phipps birthday year - her Death record stated that she was 62 in 1865, so I guess I got the year (abt) 1803 from that calculation, plus from the Census information (see below).

    The Family Search record was the only one I could find for an Elizabeth Phipps around that time - born/bapt 1788. If this is the correct person, she would have been around 50 when she married Matthew Plews in 1838 as his first wife died between 1835 and 1838 - after having about 10 children to Matthew. Elizabeth then went on to have 3 children with Matthew - Eunice abt 1939, Elizabeth 1841 and John Thomas 1844. I don't think this was the correct Elizabeth Phipps in this case (the one in Family Search).

    I also tried to find a marriage between Elizabeth's parents - George Phipps and Elizabeth/Elisabeth (Moah,Mouh??) - couldn't find anything or any other children.

    The 1851 Scotland Census has the following (for Dalkeith) :

    Matthew Plews aged 59 (born abt 1792)
    Elizabeth Plews aged 49 (born abt 1802)

    The 1861 Scotland Census has the following (for Newington, Edinburgh) :

    Matthew Plews aged 70 (born abt 1791)
    Elizabeth Plews aged 58 (born abt 1803)


    I know that Matthew Plews was born around 1791/1792 Crakehall, Yorkshire area.
