Passenger list is good evidence that William, Daisy and Ellen travelled, probably emigrated, to the States in 1911. Only one other Daisy and William Bridge marriage can be found and they are accounted for in 1911 census. Neither William nor Daisy can be found, so presume they made a life for themselves in the States.

Sister: Martha Bridge (born 1838 Essex died 1852 Halstead)   View NotesHide notes  

Cannot find Martha after 1851 census, the death record in 1852 seems to fit with this although this is not proved.
