Thank you Rosie, I have all that information so I am right with the name Freak..!! as  I have traced the Rolfes back to the 17th century ...phew! Just got confused as a distant relative has her on her tree as Mary Anne ...

No I don't I'm afraid..I did mean  to have mention that as well, thought it was just Freak spelt wrong though, as an elderly Aunt ( no longer here to ask ) referred to her as Mary freak....As I say i am totally confused  ???

Hi All
After a break in researching my Maternal Grandmothers side of the family I have now become a trifle confused now I have picked it back up again..
My Great Grandmother was born in 1856, Wadhurst Sussex.. Christened on the 2nd March st Marys..
as Mary Jane Freak, returning to Reading after she was 15 as she is listed as being a servant in sussex at that age, but still living with her family.? On 1871 census she seems to be Mary Anne ? One or two other memebers trees have her as Mary Anne too.. ! Is this a miss-spelling or do I have  the Wrong Mary Freak do you think? .. She married Edwin Fisher in 1875 in Reading, had 8 children, one being my Grandmother..! which all seems to fit.. ??? ???

In 1930 it became a municipal hospital, taking the name Battle Hospital for the first time. In 1948
So seems Edwin died in Hospital not a workhouse..! :) !
