Thank you, I was trying to work out how Eliza WOODWARD could be the niece of James and Sarah (nee HALL) ORGAN in 1881.  Goodness knows who the childrens' father/s are.

I'm catching up with all these replies and although all very interesting Ada's father was called William Woodward.

Unsure of his birth date but I'm guessing sometime in the mid to late 1830's... just a pure guess so please forgive me.

Ada was born in Berkeley but grew up in a village called North Nibley. They are both only ten minutes apart so there could be a slight confusion with the location but its geographically right in terms of area.

I'm unsure who her mother is... I know there Is another Ada going around with a father called George but this is not my great great grandmother.

Ada and Daniel moved to the Caerleon area towards the late 1880's.

Sadly, I don't have any surviving photos of her, would love to find some but having no luck.

Thanks everyone!! 😊

George

Ada was born in Berkeley but grew up in a village called North Nibley and in 1871 there is a record to prove this.

Can you tell us what this 'record' is please?  I can only see one Ada in Nibley in 1871 and she was the daughter of George WOODWARD and Emma WORKMAN.

I would say her mother is the Susan Woodward who married William Hall.

A suggestion would be when Ada married she put William as her father but changed the surname to Woodward to match her own.  This wasn't uncommon. 

Do we know when Susan was widowed?  That could be significant as to the father.
