Florence Mary Blackmore/Boxhall born 1872

I am trying to trace a Florence Mary Blackmore, born in 1872 in Hammersmith, London. In the will of her father (William Blackmore from Burrington, Devon) that was written in 1914 she is named as Florence Mary Boxhall/Boxall - both spellings are quoted. There were several codicils up to 1918 and so I don't think she had died by the time of his death in 1920.

The newspaper article (North Devon Journal) of his funeral shows all the close family who attended, but she isn't referred to.

I can't find a marriage for her and so there are a couple of obvious possibilities
- she was married twice
- she emigrated from the UK before marriage

The last known info on her was in the 1891 census when she was 18 and living with her father in Braunton Devon.

Any clues?
