Brief History


The last we see of Ann Udall’s husband Authur Kursern is their wedding day.  Their last name was subjected to tremendous variability, and no two record-takers wrote it the same.  Illiterate, perhaps he did not care overmuch how it was spelled.  I have used version on his marriage record.  How much they saw each other after marriage is not known.  Though his whereabouts are not known to us, on two census records and her death record she was identified by her married name, and on the 1851 census she was reported as being married.  There are no known children.  Ann spent her time working at her parents’ inn, cooking and provisioning.

Note: This is a peculiar record – maiden name preserved even though the parish record gives her married name.  I have found no death record on this resource for “Ann Kurzen”.  This is probably he death record, though why maiden name is there instead and how it got on the record I cannot discern.
