About Edmund Arnsby and Elizabeth Oglesby

We know that at the age of 9, Edmund was living with his parents Samuel and Charlotte, his older brother Henry age 13 and younger sister 'Sophia' age 4. The family were living on Moneyers Street, St. Leondards Shoredtich, Middlesex, England.

Edmund married Elizabeth Ogleby/Oglesby on October 10th, 1856 at St. Michan Parish Church in Dublinl, Ireland.

We learn about the birth of Edmund and Elizabeth's first child from the inscription on the Flyleaf of the 'Bible and Book of Common Prayer of the Established Church belonging to Edmund Arnsby.' To Edmund Arnsby from Revd. Peter Price. Chaplain Jullundur, 8th Dec. 1859.

That one page tells us that Samuel John Arnsby was born in Jullunder while Edmund was serving as a soldier in India.

The child, named after his two Grandfathers, died on the River Ganges just short of his first birthday. (The page is represented below, click on the little image to see a large version.)

Writing comparisons of the Bible entries and the Military Discharge document, the writing appears to be Edmund's. In another hand, possibly Elizabeth's, are entries for two sons, Edmund and Robert Henry.

Edmund died, at age 44, on April 11th, 1877, leaving his wife Elizabeth and five surviving children. On the Death Certificate, Edmund is listed as a Pensioner, E. Arnsby, widow of the Deceased in attendance, 11 Edward Street, Liverpool.

It is unclear what happened after Edmund's death. Edmund's Cause of Death is listed as Consumption - a word often used for Tuberculosis. Was Edmund's wife Elizabeth unable to cope with five children or was she herself unwell?

The couples two surviving sons, 'Ned' Edmund and 'Bob' Robert Henry were sent to the Royal Hibernian School in Ireland, a school for the orphans of Military Personnel.

Where daughters Lizzie, Mary Ann, and Bridget Sophia were sent to live is unclear. One account has them being placed in a Convent. Another account has them being raised by their Aunt Charlotte (Charlotte Sophia Rebecca Arnsby Miles).

Perhaps the truth is somewhere in between; on the 1881 British Census, we find Edmund's sister Charlotte Sophia Rebecca Arnsby Miles, now a Widow, living at 157 Lynton Road, Bermondsey, England with two of her nieces, Elizabeth Charlotte and Mary Ann. No trace of Bridget Sophia was found on the 1881 Census.

We have a date of death listing for Elizabeth as circa 1890 at the age of 52. No record of Elizabeth was found on the 1881 Census.
