She was my great grandmother, though noone seems to know why she was given the above names!

I know she was daughter of William Turnbull and Elizabeth Appleton, and was born 1888 in Leadgate, Co Durham, died 1954.

I have nothing else on the Turnbull line prior to William, so am intrigued where her various names seem to have come from, as they seem to be surnames rather than obvious christian names.

Interested in anything anyone can offer, am doing quite well with other lines of research, but this Turnbull line proving to be my brick wall.

Hi, can anyone help? I have an ELIZABETH APPLETON, possibly born 7.12.1860, with father EDWARD APPLETON. Mother unknown - possibly a WILHELMINA HODGSON, though I believe her to be a second marriage after Edward emigrated to Canada. ELIZABETH APPLETON believed to be born Leadgate, but I have come to a grinding halt. Also not sure whether she had any siblings other than 2 (half?) brothers who appear on 1881 Canadian census. Thanks!
