Can anybody find any of this household in 1911?
« on: Thursday 03 December 20 15:19 GMT (UK) »
In 1901 in Sheffield there is a household of a Priscilla WELLES (although looks like WILLIS in the image) born London abt 1857; her sister Louisa BOAG born London abt 1855 and their adopted child Emily MARVIS born Sheffield abt 1896.

I can't find any of this household in 1911...both sisters are widows but I can't find marriage records for them or a birth record for Emily.

Help!

Poor little Emily, can't find her birth or on 1911. Maybe if she got adopted again her name was changed.

That happens to me all the time  ;)

1911 Hultahan family.
At 17 Pond House Pond Place Chelsea.

John Joseph Hultahan   41
Mary Ellen Hultahan   35 wife
Eva Mary Howard   27 sis in law

Was rather hoping little Emily might be with them as her other two 1901 guardians had died.

Thanks all.

It was Emily I was hoping to find in 1911. But to be honest I am really clutching at straws trying to break down a years old brick wall - this most likely isn't the right person anyway.

Out of interest I found a newspaper item of 1871 saying the Sisters HOWARD TROUPE, 4 in number, were the most successful Dancers of the CAN CAN that have appeared in Newcastle'.
