    Well here's the problem, she doesn't seem to have married. No one has ever found anything. There's a thread here somewhere.
    Her partner was James William Fricker born 1854 in Chelsea, another mystery man. My clue here is a DNA match or I would never have picked her. It's looking good, but the big mystery is that if her family match mine, she has to be the woman who said on my g grandfather's birth certificate she was Annie Fricker nee Birch formerly Palmer! In everything else she is Annie or Mary Ann Birch or Fricker. After 1891 she vanishes again! If I find a Palmer link somewhere then I'll know I have my woman

    Sorry getting excited. She didn't claim to be a Birch, just a Palmer and Fricker

    Have you revisited that other site that has numerous posts on this subject. I tried to absorb it all on there but can’t get my thick head around it all. Perhaps go back there and read through again. I’m certain the answer is hidden in all those posts. Annie Palmer is mentioned a number of times.:headbang:

    Yes I know it all inside out, this couple have been looked for for over 30 years. Annie Palmer appears in only this one record, and up until now there has never been anything that might indicate whether she was Mary Ann Birch or a different person . Partly because we didn't know who Mary Ann was either o_O

    Noooo :headbang: After reading through miles of enumerators notes, I found "formerly Trafalgar Buildings" under Hoxton New Town in 1871. Henry Birch living alone at number 10, age 36! No idea who he is, it's not his son. What are the chances?
