Hello am desperately seeking any information on the above individual AGNES MARKESKY (MARKOWSKY) who I believe used the second name of CLEE on her children's birth certificates. 

She is living as wife (though I believe not married) with ARTHUR LEONARD MOTTRAM in Blackpool and environs on the 1911 Census.  She had three children with Arthur that I know of, NORA EILEEN born 1906, IVY born 1908, HAROLD born 1910. 

This seems a very complicated and fractured family who I am researching on behalf of my son's girlfriend.

NORA EILEEN is her great grandmother.  She married PATRICK BRUCE in Belfast in 1922 and had two sons. 

She left Patrick, and formed a relationship with WILLIAM RAMSEY RUSSELL with whom she had two daughters.  The family know very little of her life.  She never married WILLIAM RAMSEY.  PATRICK BRUCE died in 1949. 

For some reason NORA adopts the second name of MOORE.  She is recorded under this name on the 1939 Register, the right birth date of July 20, but the wrong year.  She, her four children and WILLIAM RUSSELL settle in LEICESTER.  She died in 1993, (again correct birth date wrong year).

Through Ancestry I have discovered that her brother HAROLD married a girl from Tipperary and settled in IPSWICH. 

I have no idea when the estrangement happened between Agnes and Arthur Leonard MOTTRAM.  But he marries SYLVIA DILLON in Lancashire 1923 and has two daughters.  He was badly injured in WW1 and committed suicide in 1956. 

I cannot trace IVY.  NORA was taken out of school in LYTHAM in 1912, given reason 'leaving the area'.  Perhaps the family moved to Ireland? 

Arthur's family came from a long line of Plumbers and Plumbing Wholesalers, ALEXANDER, Agnes's father was a plumber - is this how they possibly met? 

Any information would be so wonderful, and I would be only too happy to share the information I have.
