  Ellen Fish is a direct ancestor of Bill Burgar, the author of this work.

She was born on 6 September 1817 in Bath, Somerset.10,20

The IGI has:

Ellen daughter of John and Elizabeth Fish was baptised on 1/12/1822 at Walcot Vineyard, Countess of Huntingdon in Bath, Somerset.20   (This was a Presbyterian church).

It seems that three of the Fish girls were baptised on the same day.  Perhaps their father and mother had just become members of the church and thought that it would be appropriate to have the girls baptised.

She died in 1897. Civil Registration of Death reference is Jun 1897, Vol 1d, p 324. Aged 77 - in Wandsworth, London.16

She married Samuel James Rowe on 15 March 1841 in St Marylebone, Middlesex.25.  Civil Registration of marriage reference is Mar 1841, Vol 1, p 166 - in Marylebone, London.16

The Civil Registration of Marriage Certificate states:

Samuel James Rowe, full age, Bachelor, a Smith, of St Marylebone, married Ellen Fish, Full age, Spinster of St Marylebone on 15 March 1841 at Parish Church in the Parish of St Marylebone , Middx.
