In my personal experience, family tales should be treated with a huge amount of salt! ;D ::)

There's usually a nugget of truth in there somewhere; but the details get mixed up somewhere along the line.

That family have never been known for their truthfulness, but more than one person have commented on the 20 children born in the Meadows to this family......The story went that they lived in 2 houses and the Mabbotts along with the next door neighbours both had 19 children each, then, Old lady Mabbott had a 20th and the neighbour stopped talking to her as she felt outdone by her having 1 child more than her - I have always been curious to find out who they all are, pity this site did not exist years ago........Maybe it is just a story, maybe not, but we will never know now as everybody concerned is deceased.......thanks for your help, Libralady.........

I can't give details from the 1911 census but if you look at Harrietts entry you will see how many children she supposedly had  ;D

Could it be that the story doesn't relate to the Mabbutts, but another branch of the family?
The mother's or grandmother's family perhaps?
