Matilda Turner


 Turner -> Burk -> Campbell -> Stone -> Howell  

Still trying to find more on Matilda Turner of Tavistock, Devon, England.  
 
Mathilda Turner

Matilda is the mother of Mirrette Burk and grandmother of Flora Maude Campbell Stone (our Granny Stone). She appears in the 1861 Canadan Census, Harwich, Kent County, Ontario as "Matlilda Burk, born England, age 37". 

She also appears in the 1880 US Census in Alameda, California as "M. Burke, White, Female, Age 58, wife, married, b. England, father and mother b. England"  

The 1841 England Census shows 4 Turner's listed in Tavistock: Matilda Turner, F, age 15, b. Devon; Mary Turner, F, age 60, b. outside census county; John Turner,m, age 55, Farmer, b. Devon; Jane Turner, F, age 15, female servant, b. Devon.  

Our Matilda could be the one listed in the England Census age 15 (so born cir 1826) but there is no way to tell until we surface more.
