Ada Woodward (Nicholls)
« on: Wednesday 04 March 20 00:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I hope this is the right section.

I am trying to locate any photos or documents related to my great, great grandmother Ada Nicholls.

She was born Ada (Ida) Woodward in 1865 in North Nibley, Gloucestershire. She married Daniel Nicholls in 1885 and moved to Gwrhay (could be the surrounding areas like Oakdale)

They had nine children together including my great grandmother Susan Nicholls born in 1895.

Ada died in December 1915 roughly aged 50. Unsure of cause of death but if anybody knows that would ge great.

If anybody has any photos or documents or has any more information on her I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Seems there are 2 Ada's - one with father George.  She also born 1865 and marries 1885.
I can find her on 1871 census but not your Ada yet.

I wonder if this is her born Berkeley in 1871

William Hall head 46
Susan Woodward 41 servant
Eliza 10 daughter
Ada 7 daughter
William 4 son
Thomas 92 lodger

Not sure if Susan is married or unmarried - bit unclear as is her age.

Where has North Nibley come from as her birthplace?

Census birthplaces are:

1891  Berkeley, Gloucestershire

1901  Allmore, Gloucestershire  (Halmore?)

1911  Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire

So she doesn't really know where she was born.
