She is on the 1911 Census.

1911 Census

David (74) is a gas fitter so it seems he was still working.

They had 9 children, 6 still living, 3 who have died.

21 Whewell Road Upper Holloway N

Their son James is with them.

That's absolutely excellent - and amazingly fast!

Thank you so much for this. May I ask - what is "FreeReg"?

Very impressed you were able to pull that all up in a couple of minutes!!!

I use FreeReg a lot for OH's Lincolnshire ancestors.

Blimey, you're certainly fast! Huge thanks for all the information. It was fascinating and very much appreciated!

Of those baptisms, Thomas, Joseph, Eliza and James all appear as children on the 1841 census, but Ann and Dinah do not. Possibly they were infant deaths?

The witnesses on the marriage records do not mean anything at the moment - though Michael Michael is a very peculiar name!

And huge thanks for the Elizabeth Towery lead.

I'm indebted
