Subject: BOYLE/Smith Sleuth Required
Date: Thu, 7 Apr 2005 22:16:43 +1000
I would like to say a big thank you to all those cleaver listers who have come to my rescue. It really took detective work to find my BOYLE's
Alice BOYLE was recorded as Alice Hopcraft and her daughter as
Eva BOYLE as Eva Hopcraft
I seems she married in 1896 and my grandmother her sister ALICE and EVA never told the rest of the family. The sleuth even found the marriage for me on Free BDM now all I have to do is order the cert.
Poor little Ethel BOYLE aged 14 was in a Reform School in Coventry far away from her family in Kensington. Life was hard then.
Her mother died in 1895
Her father remarried in 1896
Alice mentioned above also married same Q 1896 and probably left home and took her daughter Eva with her.
Ethel's father died in 1898 of typhoid.
So it seems poor Ethel was in need of some TLC.
And to top it all The Stepmother was in their old home in 1901 with her children from her 1st marriage.
A million thanks to all those that helped.
