Eton, Bucks...the big house???
« on: Friday 06 March 09 07:32 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help please  :) Sorry can't afford the credits at the moment and I'm really waiting for Northumberland anyway   ::)

Was there a particular "big house" at Eton, apart from the school please?
In the 1911 census I have
Frances Helen Townsend b1880 ....I know she was a lady's maid (my Great Aunt)
and
Albert Edward Northeast b1880...I know he was a butler

Presumably they both worked at the same place. They married in 1916. Albert was killed in 1918

Main names:
Scotland (Travellers) - Townsend/Townsley, Conway, Stewart
Lanark and Stirling - Jeffrey.
Northumberland/ Durham - Newton, Nixon, Sharp, Greaves, Naters
Warwickshire and London - Garfield.
Ireland, Co. Kerry - Marah/Meara/Mara, McClure, Howard, Melvin
Lincs - Smith, Vinter

other offshoots - Berry, Steven, Craig, Atkins, Fuller, , Stewart, Conway, Heather,

Oh wonderful, I've just answered my own question  ;D
I knew my Great Aunt had worked for the Princess Dolgorouki in Scotland around the time of the Great War and just out of interest I put her name in. There she is in Eton...presumably at Nashdom in Taplow
I might have to fork out some money for this one..too good to resist
One happy bunny  ;D
