R is for resolving a change of name AtoZ Challenge 2016

At last we have a resolution of a name change. Amelia  Cook Richardson ( sister to my GG Grandfather William Frank Laws) changed her name to Amelia Richardson Cooke somewhere between 1851 English census  and her younger sister's marriage in 1860.
In a previous blog http://familytreeblossoms.blogspot.com.au/2015/04/i-is-for-ida-emilie-robertshaw.html  I detailed the reasons why I thought she had changed her name.
Now we have it  resolved.  I have DNA matches with a descendant of Ida Emilie Robertshaw and a descendant of Amy Hannah Cleverdon(Ida Emilie's sister). Yay!
