I am trying to find out what happened to Edmund PETERS/PETTERS after the 1881 census where he is found living with  his wife Sarah née LEACH. 

He was born the 2nd qtr 1848 at South Brent/Brent Knoll and married Sarah LEACH 20th May 1873 at Brent Knoll.  Son of Thomas and Martha PETTERS.

I cannot find Edmund for 1891 census but I have found Sarah at the home of her father George LEACH (transcribed LUCK) and her brother.  She states she is married but no sign of Edmund.

I think I may have found Sarah in 1901 in London as Sarah J PETERS a widow and a mother's help.  (Not sure about the initial J though or whether it is the right one)

I cannot find a death or any other reference to Edmund.

Can anyone else help please?

Just found Sarah's baptism which was 25.Jun 1837 so she has knocked a few years off her age every census.

As the Somerset Archives do not hold any burial records for Brent Knoll after 1868 it is likely that the Burial Book is still in use and at the church.  Have you tried contacting the parish for any information?

Thanks Pat.  I hadn't got that far in chasing up that death date as it is not a direct line.  I was concentrating on the 1891 census, so I could be a bit more specific in the likely death date. 

I am just trying to fill in any gaps in my tree on my maternal side of the family  having just found out that my paternal side is not the one I thought it was.

I didn't know  you were an ex Merrywood G. Schoolgirl untilI came across your name on their site.
