Great stuff.. that confirms Harry as Gladys father.. so it appears that although Harry and Hannah remained married they lived separate lives..

no problem, Rosie!

From the wording of the probate, Harry may not have left anything to his wife & child. I came across an advert for anyone who had a claim against the estate.

Donnybrook is now a B&B.

Thanks Osprey, thatís what I thought. So it must have been a complete break between Harry and Hannah but surely if she was still his wife and Gladys their only child then she would inherit his estate. Unless they divorced?.. a puzzle all round this family..

In 1982 Gladys died still single at the age of 94 in a nursing home in Worthing, West Sussex. A long life, but what did she do I wonder? (Any newspaper articles?)


I couldn't find any articles on her death, this is the only thing i could find.

COOPER, Gladys Vivian of St Benards Nursing Home 8 Mill Road Worthing, died 21 March 1982 Probate London 3 September £43595          820014932X

I think that might depend on the will. Might be worth getting a copy just in case.

Back to Elsie M Hone for a moment she is the only child with George & Alice and the only child with Alice and her new husband on the next census.

I can find 2 more possible siblings

Edith Madeline 1879
Lilian Gertrude Alice 1877

but both have died by 1881  :(

Father George dies 1882
