If anyone can post up links to the census entries, it would be greatly appreciated! I still haven't got my ancestry sub sorted out!

I quite enjoyed this one but (perhaps I'm being a bit prissy) thought her amused reaction to the discovery that Elizabeth was a brothel keeper was a bit shallow. She seemed to think this made Elizabeth a marvellous woman.

I don't deny that she was strong and a survivor, but at what cost to the women who used her premises? Prostitutes generally had a very short life and let's not forget that many prostitutes were children. This was definitely glossed over and she was made to seem a clever entrepreneur.

Yes, and her young granddaughters were living with her at 9 Shepherd Street!

They didn't mention whether Elizabeth left anything to her three daughters, did they?

L enjoyed it but was shouting at the tele when it was automatically assumed that Rosa was Lewis's daughter because she had the same surname! Hadn't they heard of unmarried mothers?

I thought the same, Lynn. They didn't say who was the parent of the two grandchildren on the earlier census, did they? Edit - found it and they have a different surname from her and are children of one of her married daughters, so not to worry!

Hmmm, doesn't the 1871 census entry say Lewis is unmarried?

This looks like Lewis in 1861; he is Son of head of household but the head isn't there, so I'm guessing this was another of Elizabeth's properties. And Lewis is unmarried on this one:

I also wondered how they knew that Rosa LIVED with her grandmother and wasn't just staying the night!

In 1851 Rosa is a visitor with a family called Fisher:
