I can't see the 1911 image, does Priscilla say she is married, widowed or single?

Was John Gribble born in Cornwall?, if it's the one I was looking at it seems he had a twin brother ( Nicholas ), not there in 1881 census but appears in 1891 census, same address, but John appears to be down Devon way as a servant aged 14, did he run away from home?, escaping seems to be his forte  :)

look at 1911 census for Emma Gribble, she says a child has died, who? ( if I have the right family )

or am I confusing myself here

still suspicious of George Gribble in the Australian army, dated 1915 - 1916, says born in Cornwall, aged 37, hmmm

No he was born in Bedford (though way back the Gribbles hailed from Crediton, Devon). His parents and siblings by 1890's moved to Barrow in Furness, Cumbria (where my dad, though not a Gribble) was born

they sure got about

ah, righto, made a great fiction story though  :), sorry on the mix up, so the George Gribble in Australia is a non event
