Message from Anne on GR 2008:
My gt-grandmother Maria (daughter of Francis and Ann) married a Bath man. But her sisters Lizzie and Liza moved to Bath also at some point - presumably to work.Francis' children seems to have spread out in all directions. Ann married in London and Robert in Newton Abbott.
Enjoy your visit to Bath. I was there the week before last and spent an enjoyable day wandering round the centre down some of the many little side streets around the Abbey. I went to school in Bath and have been back regularly ever since as I still have relatives and friends in the area.
I still have a few bits of a tea set that belonged to Lizzie and Liza, and I suspect their parents before them. Not valuable, but nice to have. The pair of them seem to have been servants in various places in Somerset at the time of the various censuses. They finally settled in a little terrace house in Bath that was still occupied by their niece until her death in 1962. I used to visit her in the 1950s.
I look forward to hearing from you direct.
