Administration of Elizabeth Blake, wife of William Blake of Duntisbourne Abbots, Gloucestershire - Diocese of Bristol Wills on Ancestry, administered 15 Nov 1851

Another administration and again in the same general area as the two earlier ones. Elizabeth Blake wife of William Blake of Duntisbourne Abbots. There is a William Blake at Duntisborne Abbots, farmer, born circa 1784 on the 1851 census. Living with him is Elisa Blake born circa 1804. No children listed.

A second page was available on Ancestry which can be found below the administration granted.  This corrects my earlier blog which had Elizabeth as the mother of William Blake.
