I'm not sure what you mean by "but have been unable to find her on the page
indicated" - do you mean the digital image of page 522?
She's definitely there - towards the bottom ........
Mrs Williams, Stephen Street
Mrs Maddern, Aphrasia Street
M Wilson, Pardon Place
Mrs Palmer, Fraser Street [repeated at the top of page 523]
Jennifer Bantow is currently working on Page 522 so I'll let her liaise with
you on where she's got to with it and what extra information you could
provide to help with this one.
Regards ............ Susie Z
