    Yes, I came to the same conclusion - that the date and "young woman" were errors. I agree it matches Stephen Maywood's mother-in-law.

    Sarah did have a sister named Mary (who married William Lyon), and a while ago I came upon some information about her on a genealogical website:
    http://mandybrock.com/Ancestors_of_Jean_Mary_Lyons.html

    This includes something I'm not sure has been posted here - in the late 1880s the Lyon family lived at 94 Cornwall Street, which I think explains Stephen Maywood's presence at that address on 10 April 1888 (in Chapman Street School register).

    Here are some other notes of where the Lyon family was around that time:

    In their marriage entry (26 July 1886, St Thomas Bethnal Green) William's address is given as 10 [?]Diegal Street Brick Lane and hers as 32 Elizabeth Street [?]Hackney.

    Their first child Charles William was born 29 November 1887 at 94 Cornwall Street and died "1888" at 94 Cornwall Street. Their second child Sarah Ann was born 21 November 1888 at 94 Cornwall Street. But the third child Mary Alice was born 21 October 1891 at 19 Spencer Street (where they lived until at least 1909) [from mandybrock.com].

    Electoral register 1889 - North Ward: Upper Division East (Tower Hamlets > St George on Ancestry)
    Alphabetical by surname. Division 1 (pp. 37; image 23)
    1794 / Price, Charles / 94 Cornwall-street / dwelling house / 94 Cornwall-street
    Electoral register 1890 - North Ward: Upper Division East, Division 1 (Tower Hamlets > St George on Ancestry)
    1117 / Lyons, William / 94 Cornwall-street / dwelling house / 94 Cornwall-street]

    In the 1891 census William and Sarah Lyons and their 2-year-old daughter (name missing) are at 19 Spencer Street, in the household of Sarah's father Charles Price.
    Thanks for that, Chris. I knew about the Lyons, but I don’t think I was aware of their living at the Cornwall Street address. That’s intriguing, I must follow it up.

    I’m confused by the reference to a ‘young woman named Mary McNamara’ giving 4, Breezer’s Hill as her address on admission to the SGE workhouse on 2nd June, 1887. As far as I can see, no such person was admitted to the Raine Street workhouse on that date. The next day, however, a 64-year-old widow named Mary McNamara who gave 4, BH as her address was admitted. And she, I suspect, was Stephen Maywood’s mother-in-law.

    I can’t recall whether Sarah Mack had a sister named Mary.

    My pleasure, Jon ...

    Trying to get a handle on Neal or Jen is as easy as finding Judge Crater & Amelia Earhart. I know what you mean. I tried contacting both to no avail about doing what I just did quite some time ago.

    Thankyou Howard, another class act!


    I had this on Kindle, but as often happens my hard drive went through a crash n burn some years ago, so it was lost.
    I tried contacting the Sheldon's for another copy but no-one replied.


    Much appreciated my friend.
