Thank you for the information.

I just can not prove who Elizabeth Jennet Thomas is one way or the other.
She is a mystery.

The Elizabeth on the Censuses that were mentioned above ( not only in my post) is Elizabeth "Jannet" Thomas born in 1878, Q1, mother maiden name: William. Jannet and not Jennet... That might be why she is a mistery...

I have seen there are other Elizabeth Jennet Thomas... So you are maybe not on the right track.
Happy to help if I can.

Thanks again for your post. Good to know her mothers surname thank you.

We have been researching her now for a number of years and getting no where so while her name appears to be spelt 'Jennet' then we are researching other spellings too.

It's odd on her marriage entry in 1906 she is recorded as Elizabeth 'Janet' Thomas then she must have signed it  Elizabeth 'Jennet' Thomas but the registrar has crossed it out and inserted Janet and initialled it.

On  two of her children's births  she registered she called herself  'Jennet'. However on the birth that her husband registered he called her 'Bessie Janet'.

It says on her Marriage Certificate that her father was John Thomas, deceased,  Hotel Proprietor.

There have been quite a few irregularities about the family and like many they appear to have been economical with the truth at times.

We can find no death for her either under the name of 'Rees' her married name or 'Thomas' her maiden name. But the last we have any identified address for her it was at 10 Huggin Lane, Canons Street. London in 1917.

So we are researching at all spellings of her name just to make sure.

Any ideas gratefully received.

Judy
