This week I am featuring some of my Ellis ancestors – they had a thing about hair!
First up is Job and Lucy Ellis. They lived in the rural village of Elstead Surrey. Job was born in 1848, married Lucy in 1868 and he passed away, aged 89 years in 1937. I love the big bushy beard.
Meet John Ellis
John Ellis was an Uncle to Job. He was born in Elstead in 1817. He married Sarah Turpin in 1842. Sarah worked at Elstead Mill as a lace maker. In 1854, John and Sarah migrated to Geelong Victoria Australia where they had another 4 children. John died, aged 83 years in 1900.
