  • Notes 


    • Susanna and Margarett Romans were sisters. They were baptised on the same day, 23 Oct 1808, at Sowerby By Thirsk. They may have been twins, or their parents may have taken the opportunity to have a baby and a slightly older sister baptised at the same time.

      With Susanna Romane (age 32, born in Yorkshire, a housekeeper) at Water row, Cawood in the 1841 census are Edward (8), Mary (6), Eleanor (2) - probably her children (the 1841 census does not give relationships). Eleanor and Mary have baptism entries, Eleanor's giving Susanna as her mother (but no father is listed) and Mary's has Susanna in the same household, so presumably her mother. If so, Romans could be her married name and she is a daughter-in-law of Mary and Benjamin - but on evidence has been found of a marriage.

      However, in 1851 there is a Susan Romans (age 43, born Cawood, unmarried, a charwoman) and her daughter Ellen (age 13) living at Church end, Cawood.

      In the 1861 census Susanna Romans (age 52, born at Sowerby, unmarried) is living with her mother Mary age 82 (born at Sowerby) at Church end, Cawood.

      There is an unanswered questions about whether Susan and Susanna are they the same person, though this seems likely, and it appears that Susanna, as an unmarried woman, had 3 children, with the father possibly a man named Taylor.

      She was buried at the Rythergate Cemetery at Cawood, and seems to be in the same grave as the Carroll family and some very young babies.
