How was Eleanor D Yerbury related to Edward Reuben Yerbury b.1843 ?


1841, 1881, 1901 Censuses

Eleanor Darnigo Yerbury was a younger sister of Edward Reuben Yerbury b.1843.

Thank you to Tony Martin-Jones, a distant relation of the Yerbury family,  for providing this answer, and for also providing the  information below:

The Yerbury Family

London, USA, Edinburgh

"The parents of ER YERBURY, the photographer, were Edward Reuben YERBURY (possibly born c.1817, Edinburgh) and Eleanor LIEF (born c.1821) (my connection). They married on 21-Sep-1842 at St James, Clerkenwell, London.

They were living at the same address as Eleanor's family in Shoreditch, London for the 1841 census, but I have not found them in any later censuses.  It appears that the family went to the USA.

At the 1901 census, Eleanor D YERBURY (56, retired photographer, born at London) and Elizabeth L. YERBURY (48, teacher, born in USA) are sisters living at Tunbridge Wells, Kent; they are the two from the 1881 census at Panmure Place, Edinburgh.  They are both younger sisters of Edward Yerbury (b.1843)

Also Emma "Darnigs" YERBURY's second name is Darnigo, after her
great-great-great-grandmother Darnigo PINNIGER. This is also Eleanor's
second name.
