I like that something from past history has been put to good use instead of being bulldozed.

More

1911c Ellen Mary is a servant in Hunstanton
I think Ellen Mary is the mother of Henrietta Newton but no wiser to who Doris G N Burton's mother is.
Rachel's best bet is to send for Doris's birth cert. to find out who her mother was.
?? there is a Paulina Newton b 19.11. 1870 chr.10.12.1870 Docking Union I will have a look at her.

Hi D, we thought the same about Mary being Harriet and Ellen's mother, also worked out that Ellen was probably Henriettas mum.According to her birth cert, Doris's mum was Gertrude Burton who was living in Heacham in Sept 1905. Doris is down as being born at Paxtons Terrace 8th June1905. Drawn a blank after that though. Well done for all your hard work by the way :) T

That confirms the Gertrude Burton I found Desira, in 1901, but would love to know who she was working for in 1905. They have her down as General Servant and where in Paxtons Terrace? Frustrating isn't it when you can only get so far, you've worked wonders!

Paxtons Terrace was just row of houses If I remember correctly it 's where I used to go with my aunt to see her family.
Could she have been employed by the school opposite ,two pubs close by or the hotels around that area ?

Yes Desira, it was just houses. Guess she could have been employed anywhere. I know the school very well, St James at the time I was there, both as an infant and Junior, from 1951-1958. Lovely school, one of the best teachers I ever had there.

Nothing more on Paulina.
George has to be the culprit otherwise Doris 1905 couldn't be Mary Ann's granddaughter.
