Thanks I think this is the one

Would you be able to look on 1901 census at a Mary A Henry?? I want to look at the actual image as I believe it may be Mary A Hughes not henry but I could be wrong. I may be completely wrong but its worth a try!

Mary A Henry born 1855, washerwoman living in Bethnal Green
