    Goodness, I was so wrapped up with finding Ann, I didn't notice Edward :oops:

    All I can say to all these latest revelations is, 'Oh what a tangled web we weave' and well done Mealymoo and Chimp :)

    Going back to the 1881 census where Ann is head of household and a 'lodging house keeper', the only 'boarder' appears to be one Edward Wm. Fulcher, a Railway Clerk from Paddington......:rolleyes:

    Gosh, you guys are amazing! :)

    I didn't notice Edward either :rolleyes:, my excuse is that I was too busy tracing her daughter Mary Eliza so didn't pay proper attention. Moral of the story is: ALWAYS pay proper attention

    Yes, Ann I had made a mental note about the "lodging house keeper" and her lodger ;) ... I did wonder if he would turn out to be significant :D

    Well, about a year after his son was born Edward William Futcher married someone else :( (Poor Ann, no luck with men). He had two legitimate children -- including one called Edward ! -- and died in 1930 (so still alive and kicking in 1905). Edward Keech and Edward Futcher both worked for the Railway

    I wonder if they all knew about each other ...

    Poor Ann, she really didn't have much luck did she :(

    I thought I'd see what happened to the chap she was lodging with in 1891 -James Eggar. I do hope Ann hadn't set her sights on him as in the death notices of the Hampshire Advertiser for the 25th April 1891 it states "On the 22nd inst at St Andrew's Road, James Eggar aged 53" - just a couple of weeks after the census was taken :(

    I love how some stories really come together...the makings of a good novel, me thinks :)

    It is said that real life can be stranger than fiction. :D

    I tried and failed, the nearest I could come up with was in Portsmouth in 1861, and he was in his 80's:eek: and did not appear on the 1871:ghost:

    Oh well, I didn't get anywhere either, all the Woollett's I found were in County Durham or Kent and seemed to have no reason to need to be travelling to Southampton and staying in a lodging house ;). Maybe there will be a clue on the birth cert. which I ordered :)

    I wonder if Ann met the Robert Woollett Carpenter & wheelwright b. 1846 Shipbourne, Kent?
    He never married & in his occupation had good reason to travelling or on board ships which move from place to place, :-Southampton.

    I found one born 1841.... Robert Jeffreys Woollett... Registered 3rd qtr. St. Luke, London. In 1858 he did 18 months for burglary, but I can't find anything else on that one. Not much help, I know!

    Well I was idly considering an in-depth study of all the Robert Woolletts I could find ... but I will wait to see what the birth certificate has to say, 'cos hopefully then I won't need to do that :D

    Watch this space: Wendy may have found him ....;)
