Ellen/Nellie was from London, England. I finally was able to get her marriage license to Robert John WARD and it states her as "spinster." That was disappointing due to the fact that I did not get her parents' names. I have found a listing of a POULSON family on the 1881 British Census, which has a strong possibility for being my Ellen's family because one of her sister's names was Alice and that's what Ellen/Nellie named one of her daughters. Here is the information from the 1881 Census:
William POULSON - head - m- male - 47 - Thorpe, Suffolk England - farm laborer
Maria Poulson - wife, - m- female- 43 - Buxhall, Suffolk, England - farm labourer wife
Thomas Poulson - son - u - male - 21 - Brent Eleigh, Suffolk, England - farm labourer
Elizabeth Poulson - daur - female - 18 - Preston, Suffolk England - Domestic Servant
Robert POULSON - son - male - 16 - Brent Elieigh, Suffolk England - farm labourer
Sarah POULSON - daur - female - 14 - Preston, Suffolk, England - Servant
Frederic - son - male - 12 - Preston, Suffolk, England, Farmers boy
Henry - son - male - 10 - Preston, Suffolk, England, Scholar
Emily - daur - female - 7 - Pres., Suf/Engl
Ellen - daur - female - 5 - Pres/Suf/Eng
Alice - daur - female - 3 - Pres/Suf/Eng
William - son - male - 1 - Pres/Suf/Eng
Catherine - Gd Daur - female - 1m - Pres/Suf/Engl

Another reason I believe this is my family is because of the mother's name...Maria. My Ellen's middle name was Marian or Anne Marie (as it has been written).

If anyone can prove this family NOT to be of my Ellen's, or can prove it TO BE of my Ellen, please contact me:

God Bless!
