    In 1911 Florence Tucker nee Banfield is living with her husband and 3 daughters at RG14PN32183. Piece 32183. Barry,Glamorganshire.
    There is also Bertha May Journeaux born 1910 Barry, Glamorgan and she is a foster daughter.
    I have looked at the births on FMP but no mother mentioned.
    Is it possible that that the child was a daughter of a friend?

    I am curious how she lived with the family and why.

    Did you see there was a couple Walter and Bella Journeaux in Cardiff on the 1901 census, both born Jersey? They are living next door to another family from Jersey - head John Le Santeur
    RG13/4988/37/66
    So there is a bit of a connection betwean the name and Jersey and Cardiff

    I cannot find Walter and Bella in 1911 though

    Don't worry about getting the wrong end of the stick.
    I had written a post about Ann Dennis that married David Banfield and realised afterwards that I had her with the wrong mother and wrong year.

    As to the post- I was curious as to why the Florence Tucker (nee Banfield) had Bertha May Journeaux as a foster child.
    I was hoping that the child was related to missing Banfields.

    I should add that I realised the mistake and din't post it.
    There was a daugher Grace mentioned as well and that sent me on the wrong track.
