Welcome to Cornworthy

Family History - Louisa FURZE

Friday, 20 February 2015

I have recently started to look at my ancestors and after doing some research found that my Great Great Gran was born in Cornworthy, Devon.

I found reference to an 1851 Census. Her name, Louisa Victoria Hutchins FURZE, age 17 – therefore born in 1833, although my records say it was 1834. I know she married a man with the surname PHILLIPS as her son was called Trevor Arundle "FURZE PHILLIPS" born in 1879.

It could be that she married in England before travelling to South Africa or either married in South Africa. I have yet to determine who her husband was, so the journey continues.

I would be most grateful if you have records of her or her family growing up in this area that you can share with me or perhaps her meeting a Phillips.

Thanking you in advance,
Yours sincerely, Garth
