James Burnham

Ada Mills

  • Born: Q4 1850, West Leake, Notts 31,32,33,34
  • Marriage: James Burnham on 20 Dec 1871 in Beeston Parish Church, Notts 21

bullet  General Notes:

Despite the declaration of ""Edward Mills, basket maker" as her father at the time of her marriage in December 1871, it is most likely that he was her grandfather. She was declared by him as his "grand-daughter" on the 1851 and 1861 census and he, himself, has a son "Edward" who was younger than Ada. On the balance of probability, Ada's mother was Eliza Mills, there being no other daughters of Edward of appropriate age. This would likely to be proved by the aquisition of Ada's birth certificate.

bullet  Noted events in her life were:

Occupation: milliner, at the time of the census in April 1871. 35 She was then living with her grandparents at Leake Pit House, Sutton Bonington, Notts. Although, shown as a"daughter", it is clear from previous censuses that she was a grand-daughter (see notes)

Occupation: domestic servant, at the time of her marriage in December 1871. 36

Ada married James Burnham, son of William Burnham and Eliza Storer, on 20 Dec 1871 in Beeston Parish Church, Notts.21 (James Burnham was born circa Dec 1850 in Beeston, Notts 22,23,24,25,26.)
