52 ancestors – Harriet Howard Earl

I have been trying to find out more about Harriet Howard my Great x 4 Grandmother. She can be found on the 1841 census widowed aged 50 and living with a female servant Sarah Hall aged 12, whether Sarah is Harriet’s servant, I don’t know, she could be a family member working as a servant elsewhere. Harriet is living in Upwell near Welney, she was born out of the County but I’m not sure whether Upwell was considered Cambridgeshire
or Norfolk (it seems to vary) so she is a bit of a mystery.

I do know that she married Francis Earl of Elton at Doddington, July 1805, Cambridgeshire and was mother to John, James, Mary, Thomas, Frances and Sarah Earl (my Great x 3 Grandmother).
