Diane - thanks for the comment - it looks hopeful. Two of my maiden grand aunts were good musicians; my Grandmother was an exellent violinist and married a pianist John Tinkler. I know other branches of the family who stayed in Sedgely/Tipton area also ran music schools down there at that time. My Auntie's family lived Southport area all their lives (from 1881 for nearly a century) but they never mentioned Catherine, or any descendants that I knew of (other than some in New Zealand)- and one of them continually harped on about the family history. Catherine must have been up to see her cousins when she met Charles .. and indeed Matley was in 1881 (census) very close to them in Southport.

I have a quite a lot of info on the family (and through connections on here and other boards we have recently added quite a pedigree now back to mid 17C .. ) so if your cousin is interested please have her contact me - very willing to share all we have. Our common ancestor would be William Bowen Round and Ann Higgs (The main family line were Timber Merchants). I;d be curious too who painted "Kitty";s portrait -- we have a portrait painter Round in the family Frederick H ROUND who we are chasing up - he was active first half 20C
