Ellen Sharland

In the 1871 Census, at Avenue Rd, St Mary Stratford, Bow:

John SharlandHead39Confectionerb. Devon
Frances Sarah SharlandWife34 b. Devon
Frances Sarah SharlandDaughter11Scholarb. Devon
Frances SharlandDaughter9Scholarb. Devon
Ellen SharlandDaughter6Scholarb. Devon

The above 1871 census is strange: there are 2 daughters called Frances; all the family members are shown as having been born in Deveon.

In the 1881 Census, at 10, Glaskin Rd, Hackney:

John SharlandHeadM49Confectionerb. Tiverton, Devon
Frances S SharlandWifeM44b. Stepney, Middlesex
Frances S SharlandDaughterS21b. Mile End, Middlesex
Mary SharlandDaughterS19Pupil Teacherb. Mile End, Middlesex
Ellen SharlandDaughterS17 Apprentice to Surgical Appliance Makerb. Mile End, Middlesex

In 1881 an 'M A Sharland', female, aged 10, is a visitor in the home of Frederick Knight. Frederick Knight was later to be chief engineer at Shelvoke & Drewry. However it looks like Mary A Sharland, b. 1870, in Lambeth is from another family - parents John and Mary.

In the 1891 Census, Ellen's mother is living alone at 10, Chatham Place, Hackney:
