Elena PURNELL was staying with John HAYES at 11 North Street, Bedminster, Bristol at the 1851 census, where she was listed as a dressmaker, aged 17, born in Bedminster, and cousin of John Hayes.
John HAYES and his wife were both born at Winscombe, Somerset. His wife was Margaret Jane CAPLE or CAPEL. His mother's maiden name was ALLEN, and hers was WICKHAM.
Am looking for Elena PURNELL's parents, and their relationship to John HAYES. One of them may have had the surname HAYES, ALLEN, CAPLE, CAPEL or WICKHAM. Does anyone have an Elena PURNELL born c 1834, or a PURNELL in their family tree who married someone with one of these surnames, possibly in the early 1830s?
