Just a quickie - got Mum home from hospital tonight so just catching up with e mails very quickly!
We live in North London - in fact, looking back at the reply you had from Susan last year, Imogene and her husband must have been living nearby, as the 1871 census gives them living in All Saints parish, here in Edmonton. That's my church. (I was christened at All Saints, got married there and went to All Saints school, as did my dad and all his sisters, and his mum.) So Imogene and her husband moved from South to North London at some point.
We assume the 'Uncle Charlie' that Nan used to speak about, was Alma and Imogene's brother, Charlie. Don't know when he went out to Canada, but he obviously came back to visit London, as Nan used to say he brought her lovely presents.
Nan worked as a bookbinder before she had children, and her sisters were mainly in the fur trade (making fur coats etc, not trapping the animals!).
I will pick Auntie Joan's brains, next week - as she's the eldest she tends to remember more! She and Mum live within half a mile of each other (and me) Win lives in Hertfordshire, about 40mins away. We don't tend to move around much!
Will be in touch again, Jackie
p.s. is there any way we can send each other e mail addresses - probably better to contact each other, and saves it all going on a public forum?
