The location is spot on for where her family were previously living.

Well, I suspected that things may not have worked out for her and Dawson when she was with her family on the 1871.

Can't trace her on later census - she may have taken up with someone.

I would reckon that Dawson's children were with Eliza Emma Ashworth Chapman, his former housekeeper cum wife, going by those baptisms.

MarieCeleste Report 24 Mar 2013 16:26

Mel, it's described in the list on this link:

(But it might be for getting mixed peel out of rock buns)

Whats a Picker Maker?

A Picker Maker is a person who cast the shuttle on a loom. Made the "Pickers" - strong leather attachments fitted to each side of a weaving loom to drive the shuttle across the loom.
