Anscombe, M (Miss)


She was pledged by the Aylesbury Circuit in 1841 and opened the chapel at Wing, Buckinghamshire in 1842.

I have not been able to identify Miss Anscombe within internet records. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • There is no recorded birth, marriage or death of any woman born as Anscombe in the relevant date slots; but there is (1861 Census) a woman named Mary Ann Duphoy who was born Neve. She had two sons named Anscombe still living with her and their stepfather. She had married Duphoy in 1858 as Mary Ann Anscombe, nee Neve; so she may well have been an abandoned or widowed woman in 1841 who took the designation ‘Miss’ as a social convenience.
