Zillah Allen: Forum message: Update

Published: May 6, 2005    Last modified: January 14, 2017

I was a little quick off the mark with my previous post. The email address I replied to was indeed 'live' and I received a speedy reply. Unfortunately it became clear that we have two different families here, though I image if we go a little further back in time they will undoubtedly be closely linked.

Having checked the England and Wales Census 1891 there are indeed two Zillah ALLENs recorded in Nottinghamshire:

FHJ Ref: 012
Census: England and Wales Census 1891

The census record above shows a Zillah ALLEN at Carlton, Nottinghamshire.

The other is my great grandmother Ziller JACKLIN (née ALLEN) 1858-1949, who at this time was still single and living with her sister-in-law at East Drayton, Nottinghamshire, England.

I found this message on the 'Allens - Nottinghamshire' forum at Genealogy.com

Looking for descendants of John Allen and Emily Whitbread. They had been living in Carlton, Nottinghamshire in 1915+. One of their daughters was named Zillah, after her grandmother on the paternal side.

This is almost certainly a reference to Ziller (Zillah) JACKLIN (née ALLEN). I have replied to the given email address, just hope it is still 'live'.
