Susan Harriet Everett information please
« on: Wednesday 07 October 15 20:38 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find out information about my great grandmothers family.
She was born Susan Harriet Mathews (m. Everett) on 18.6.1888 in Southampton St, London. Her mother was Susan Renshaw born 1864.
The birth certificate has father Unknown, oral history is muddled and now mostly lost in time.
I would love to know more.
There are further connection to London where she worked in Peter Robinsons (to become Selfridges) as a staff cook, also Coggeshall in Essex and the Rozier family seem to be close or possibly connected.
I'd be grateful for help, suggestions or any leads at all.
Thanks

Welcome to Rootschat.

Was her mother given as Susan Renshaw on the birth certificate, if so I wonder where the Mathews came from?

Is the relevant marriage Susan H Matthews to Edgar G Everett, Dec qtr 1915 Braintree?

If so, have you traced how and when the Matthews surname came into the picture?

So how does she get the Matthews name, doesn't look as if it was a stepfather's name?
