I'm only an "in law" really - Robinia Elizabeth was my husband's grandmother. 

I don't have your May as the first child though - Robenia was born in 1886, James in 1888 and Martha May in 1890.  These children were born in London.

The remaining children were born in Shropshire.  This is where John Boyd was living at the time of the 1911 census
