Hi Sheila

Thanks for the posting

I expect we should be doing this by email really, unless you think other people might find it useful?

Mary Ann Mottram was baptised on 11.1.1852 in Ansley (or maybe that is her date of birth, I dont remember precisely without looking it up). She lived until 16.11.1942 and I have a few photos of her as a very old lady. Unlike her mother who had only one child, she had 15 children and they all lived!

I will have to see the parish registers, or ask someone local to look at them for me, to find out about Mary Daffern and a possible twin sister.

I am not really surprised that no-one spotted that Mary was married, because unless they were descended from her, as I am, (and with only one female child maybe nobody else is who is researching) they would have been unlikely to have caught on to such a late marriage.

Thank you, I will order the marriage certificate of Mary Daffern and John Mottram next week.
