Occupation: Music teacher
Comments: Aged 8 at the time of the 1871 census, where her occupation is entered as scholar, and her place of birth Chatham, Kent.
Aged 18 at the time of the 1881 census, her birthplace is recorded as Chatham, Kent.
Aged 38 at the time of the 1901 census, her birthplace is recorded again as Chatham, Kent.
Although listed in the 1881 census as "Elizabeth E. Milner", this may have been a transcription error, as there is strong reason to suggest her middle name was Sarah. There is a record of a birth on 7th December 1862 at Saint Paul, Chatham, Kent for an Elizabeth Sarah Milliner in the IGI. The christening took place on the 6th February 1863.
There is also an entry in the GRO indices for Oct/Nov/Dec 1862 for the birth of an Elizabeth Sarah Millner (Medway, volume 2a page 384). Medway is the district which covers Chatham.
Spouse: Charles Cousins Hare (Married 14-Sep-1886)
Children: Florence Hare, Louie Hare, Charles Hare
There is an entry in the GRO indices for Jul/Aug/Sep 1886 for the marriage of Elizabeth Sarah Milliner (Sheppey, volume 2a page 1305). Also in the same page appears a Charles Cousens Hare.
At the time of the 1901 census the family were living at 2, Winstanley Road, Sheerness.
There are two entries relating to the couple on the following webpage:
...apparently taken from local newspapers:
HARE CHARLES COUSENS DIED 1923 JUNE 13TH AGED 61 ALSO HIS WIFE ELIZABETH SARAH HARE DIED 1950 27TH AUGUST AGED 87 MI.HALFWAY CEMETARY.
HARE CHARLES COUSINS 3RD SON OF STEPHEN, m ELIZABETH SARAH MILLNER, ELD DAO OF LATE MARK,ALL OF SHEERNESS. 1886 SEPT 14TH BETHEL B/TO
Again we see the usual ambiguity in the spelling Cousens/Cousins, but it seems almost certain these entries refer to the same person.
In addition Milliner seems to be spelled incorrectly in the above (Millner), but this may simply be a transcription error.
Parents: Mark Samuel Milliner, Sarah Rickwood
Siblings: Jane Milner, George Milner, Alfred Milner, Florence Ada Milner
