Thanks yes that's the family.
Why Olive should leave for the US on her own at the age of 21 has made me curious. Hopefully someone will be researching the family and may have the answer.

In 1911 she had already left home and was working as a domestic servant.

Does William Hoskin mean anything?!  ;)

Sorry no.
William Symons left Cornwall in 1908 they married in 1915 so it doesn't look as if she left the UK to meet up with him him.
According to the ships record she had no occupation and there were no other Bromells on the ship.
If someone is researching  her siblings they may have the answer.

Thanks for your interest
