Hoping someone might be able to shed some light on a missing family I have in 1911.  Fred and Maggie (Margaret) Woodhouse.

Details of the family are below.
Frederick Charles Woodhouse 1883 born Hackford, Norfolk KIA 5th Nov 1917 Egypt.
Margaret (Maggie) Woodhouse (nee Pieraccini) 1883 Luton, Bedfordshire - 1952 Rugby, Warwickshire.

Married 1904 Luton, Bedfordshire.

I believe Frederick was a Horse Trainer.

Children

Frederick Charles jnr 1906 Bedfordshire

Nelson Dennis 1907 Bedfordshire

Maggie or Margaret ? no information, possibly born abroad.

Arthur P 1912 Luton

Robert S N 1914 Luton

Constance Elizabeth 1915 - 1976 Rugby, Warwickshire.

Reginald C C 1919 - 1975 Rugby. Maggie's son, father unknown.


It is possible that Fred and Maggie travelled to Naples Italy on the Omrah 19 Feb 1909 with their two sons Fred and Nelson, this is what I am trying to confirm and if so when did they return, as their 3rd son was born back in Luton in 1912.  So between the birth of their second son in 1907 till 1912, I have lost them and also cannot find a birth for Maggie (possibly born Margaret) their daughter in the UK.  I do know she exists, as I have pictures of her, but no other details.  Could she have been born in Italy?  If in fact the family did travel there.

I have not been able to locate the Woodhouse family living in the UK on the 1911 census and had put out an SOS in the English Chat room, and they have steered me to here in the hope we might find something to help us.

Margaret (Maggie) Woodhouse was born a Pieraccini.  Her grandfather Pietro Pieraccini (Pierachini) looks to have immigrated to the UK prior to 1829.

Pietro Pierachini was born Tuscany Italy 1807.  Father's name was Giacomo Pierachini as per marriage certificate.  I have no other information of the family prior to Pietro moving to the UK.  Would dearly love to find out any information as possible of the Pieraccini/Pierachini family if anyone has any information. 
Pietro was a wonderful sculptor, plasterer, modeller and many of his busts are apparently still in the UK.  Although as I do not live in the UK, am unable to actually find or confirm where the bust are now.  One is believe to be Queen Victoria 1838.  I do have a list and where they are apparently displayed if anyone is interested or could help with letting me know if they are actually still there. 

I believe that most of Pietro's children and then their children followed in his footsteps and were part of the massive recovery and restoration of London and surrounding areas that were bombed in the war.

Hoping for any information.

Thank you

Vanessa.
