On the 1939 register, there are two properties in Cumberland Place.
No. 1 is the Thomas family and the first line of no. 2 is blank, but there are two blanked out spaces following it. I wonder if that is where the children might have been, although not usually blanked out at their ages.

Cumberland Place post code is LL42 1ES and, if you use the satellite view on Bing Maps, you can see the numbers 1 and 2.


There are two trees on Ancestry which have the death of Ellen on 10th October 1927, and one has the death of Evan in 1939. Includes a photo of Ellen.

Neither has any further information on the three sisters.


You may have seen the newspaper articles about Ellen Evans endorsement of "Doan's Backache Kidney Pills" in the Welsh Gazette from 1925 to 1928.

On 1st May 1924, Mrs E. Evans, 6 Doctors Buildings, Barmouth, said:-"Two years ago I started to be troubled with terrible pains across my back. I dreaded washing days, and stooping was very difficult. I was low spirited, and had nasty headaches. Etc..."

I have seen other death notices which say from his or her Family Circle or Entire Family Circle.

I think it means the entire family, rather than listing individual names.

There were two William Eversdens, one in 1700, the son of Joshua and Alice, and the one in 1701, the son of William and Mary.

The trees have the son of Joshua and Alice marrying Mary Danker.

Some trees have William marrying Mary Danker, born 1677.

Others have William, born in 1700, marrying Mary Danker who was baptised in nearby Bourn in 1703, daughter of Peter and Elizabeth.

No further evidence of any Eversdens in Norfolk after 1699, so it could be them in 1699.

The trees have Mary's birth as 1677, and there was a Mary Tyrrell baptised in 1677 in Fritton, five miles from Tharston.

George was a Shoemaker, later Boot Repairer.

Some trees on Ancestry, if correct, have the Stones family going back to 1560, and the Clipsham family back to around 1700.
