Thank you so much! That's just what I've been looking for - still puzzled as to why i can't find her marriage or any record of other than her sons births certificate in 1905 - so it seems she was living with her family or at least was there at the time of giving birth to her son in 1905. Maybe she didn't marry him? I'm not sure, i can't find her, her husband and son anywhere else.

Very grateful for your help!

There is this possible, maybe Annie is a nickname or middle name?

I've seen it and now I've entered all that info in to my family tree it appears she married 3 times in 11 years as her first two husbands died only a couple of years after she married them (suspicious haha)

Thank you Cas and Mckha - you've been a big help and helped me solve the mystery!

I found her on the 1911 census with her second husband Hughie Wallis and her daughter Lillie Wallis - on the census is also a George Wallis who is 5 years old so that will be George James Mead - theyve given him his stepdads surname although throughout his life his went by Mead.

That solves the other part of the mystery.
