Stephen & Susanna MERRELL/MERRILL; c1850-c1890s; Jersey, Channel Islands

I seek information on Stephen MERRELL/MERRILL/MERELL Sr. and wife, Susanna of Jersey, Channel Islands.

In the 1851 census, Stephen and wife Joanna [sic: Susanna] resided in St. Helier, Jersey, Channel Islands with their 1 year old son, Stephen Jr.

In 1861 census, Susanna resided in St. Helier as a widow with children: Stephen aged 11; Louisa aged 8; Cecilia aged 7; and Matilda aged 4. She shared a cottage with the family of Joseph WALKEY, a Mason and the family of Mrs. Jane BURTON, widow.

In 1871 census, Susanna is a widow living as a lodger in St. Helier. Daughter Matilda is an inmate in the Orphan House in Grouville, Jersey. Daughter Louisa is married and a servant in St. Peter, Jersey. Daughter Cecilia is a servant in Grouville.

In 1881 census, Stephen Jr. and family are living in Swansea, Wales. Sisters Cecilia and Matilda are servants in Croyden, Surrey, England.

In 1891 census, Stephen Jr. and family are still in Swansea.

I'd appreciate hearing from anyone with information on this family.

** In particular I seek the maiden name of Mrs. Susanna MERRILL in order to confirm or rule out a relationship to my WALKEY family in St. Helier. **

I'm afraid I cannot assist with any other MERRELL/MERRILL/MERELL families.

Please contact me at polgara@telus.net .

Thanks kindly.

Cheers,
