Sarah CROSS was born in 1802 in Smarden, Kent. The year 1825 sees her having the first of her illegitimate daughters, Mary Ann Dean CROSS, baptised. I have all of the information that I need about Mary Ann. The 30th July 1837 sees her having another daughter baptised – Elizabeth Ann CROSS. At both Mary Ann's baptism in 1825 and Elizabeth's baptism in 1837, Sarah is recorded as 'A Single Woman' in the Parish Registers. Like mother, like daughter, Elizabeth Ann also goes on to have a couple of illegitimate daughters: Minnie Maud CROSS - baptised 21st August 1864 Alice Miriam Appleton CROSS – baptised 29th August 1869 & buried 11th September the same year. The census of 1871 sees Elizabeth Ann in Church Lane, Smarden working as a dressmaker and living with her mother Sarah and daughter Minnie Maud. In 1881, Sarah is still living in Smarden but in Water lane. She has her grandson Charles HILLS (son of Mary Ann Dean CROSS) and granddaughter Minnie Maud with her. Elizabeth Ann is nowhere to be seen. Sarah died in 1883 but I can find no trace of either Elizabeth Ann after 1871 or Minnie Maud after 1881. Grateful as always if anyone is able to help.
