In 1911 Jessie and her two brothers and father are at 33 a High Street Llanhilleth, Monmouthshire.

Jessie's mother is with her parents (? I'm guessing!) Edward and Harriet Lloyd at Munderfield Stocks Avenbury Bromyard Herefordshire.

Thanks Merry. I have got that information, but I was working from my pc and an old backup of my FTM instead of my latest backup on my external HD & laptop so I missed that bit out I'll add it now
Yes mother Jessie was with her parents probably saying goodbye to them. She was their only child and was about to move to Canada and would never see them again

memo to self..............keep backups updated on ALL computers and check before posting
