      Hi Paul,
      Her mother did die young, haven't got the cause of death as yet. I may never have found the entry at all if it wasn't for the ancestry website, it's eluded me for years.

            Thanks very much Neal

            That's a shame for Mary having her mother die when she (Mary) was so young

              Stewart Evans posted what looked like a workhouse settlement examination on Mary Anne Nichols on Facebook the other day. Stewart has returned to self imposed exile so I don't want to bother him about the details, but has anyone else noticed Nichols says in her information that Edward Walker is her step father?
              I presume that Polly invented that detail or have I misread the document? Has anyone else looked at it and can shed some light?

                      She seems to have given some of the details of her husband (first name and occupation) as her 'real' father, saying he was dead, as was her mother (that bit about her mother was true according to Neal's first post) and that Walker was her step father. I didn't know if I was reading it correctly at first.
