She is listed as Woddicor on Lancs BMD, mother's maiden name Ratcliffe.

Oh, and I forgot to look Alice up on the National Probate Calendar last night - she died 3 November 1920. Administration granted to Albert Waddicor caterer. Effects £373 8s 3d.

Zillah would hardly have made Albert one of her executors if he was silly with money, surely?

Also - my daughter and her husband took separate holidays for many years because he would not set foot outside England and hated travelling of any sort.

I wasn't sure how they could tell from the photos that Albert didn't go on the holidays - couldn't he have been the one taking the pictures?

The 1911 census says that May is Alice's daughter. May is listed as James and Alice's daughter in the 1901 census

Am I missing something? May could actually be James and Alice's daughter. If so, the picture of the three sisters is two sisters - Hester and Florence - and their aunt - May.

EDIT - Searching Lavinia Alice May Waddicor on Ancestry - two Public Member Trees match. One - Roache Family Tree - has her parents as Albert and Zillah, but the other has her parents as James and Alice.

Yes, that's a distinct possibility of course, but perhaps the family knew he didn't go?

Someone on GR has found a newspaper report from 1894 when Albert was charged with stealing a piece of ham, lol.

May's birth is registered 1897 on Lancsbmd, mmn Ratcliffe, which makes her a child of Zillah and Albert, not James and Alice.
