There is a family tree on anc*stry saying what you have about Sarah Elizabeth Snowden, born London, but thats all unscourced, so would take that with a pinch of salt

Looking on the 1911 census there is a Sophia Cowley aged 49 living in Worksop Notts, and a James Cowley aged 53 living in Worksop Notts

As its a pay per view site, you would have to buy credits to look and see if they are a couple or not :-\

I have stumbled across this website in search of the history of the Black Boy Inn, Retford. I am very interested in the idea that the landlords wife died in the pub, do you have any proof of this? Also if you have happened to find out more about the pub in your research I would appreciate it if you would share your information.

Thank you ever so much, any help is greatly appreciated. I am looking to create a full history of the building. I work in the heritage industry myself so any excuse to do some research. Your information would flesh out what I've already found.

Just realised I said my grandmother pictured outside the Inn was sophia when I meant Sarah.  Sophia was my step-grandmother, sorry to confuse.
