  • Miriam thank you for the quick response, I have found 1881 Census William is shown as married but was lodging with a family who was  a Lt. in the Royal Navy. Address 50 Criclade St, Cirencister, No sign of his wife Margaret until the record 1891 in England, my guess she was probably living at home in Ireland after Mary was born. there, somewhere I have Margaret death date in 1922 and William died in 1925. both burried in Swindon, Florence however I have failed to find her death place, Charlie died in the great war 17 Jan 1917 burial Lillers, Departement du Pas-de-Calais, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France. the serach continues.

  • Hi I'm wondering if Margaret had a sister called Ellen  born around late 1840's or early 1850's,  who married William Kelly? Thanks
