Goodness Marg she lived to a great age. She would have seen enormous changes in her lifetime. Could she write?

No Julie, doesn't look like it. The marriage cert is signed with her mark, although her husband could so perhaps he taught her in later years. I know when I was looking for her death, before the 1911 census was released, I really thought I must have missed it. You don't expect them to live until 97 in those days.

No, you certainly did well to find her. In those days there were so many epidemics and very little protection against disease. Also effects of industry, which we wouldn't consider today. I was wondering why my Sloman's moved from Tiverton in Devon to Milverton Somerset, villages not too far away really. I looked at the history of Tiverton and the amount of fires that occured were amazing. If the factory caught fire, most of the village burnt down and I imagine that would be the same in most places.

The area where she lived is not far from me and a very quiet village. Her husband was the local blacksmith. I would think that plenty of fresh country air helped to prolong her life.

No stress lol grew her own veg, kept her chickens etc - a good thing she moved from Stoke. Although the potteries are really scattered aren't they. My grandmother had a beautiful Moorcroft Bowl and so when I was in England in 2009 I caught the train to Stoke, just so I could visit the potteries. I also had to visit a distant relie outside Manchester, so my time was limited, but I got to visit Moorcroft so I was really chuffed.

I have a couple of Moorcroft pieces. I inherited them from my father in law, he knew I liked them. I don't have them on display at the moment. We are searching for a bungalow and they will have pride of place in that when we move.
