Thanks very much for this - I think the 1911 one is her, though no idea yet who the other people are and if they are related or not. And thanks for the probate entry - I hadn't got that. Again I've no idea who the other people are. But I only discovered the other day that Arthur Smith Oswin was even married, so haven't yet found all the details about his wife's family.
cheers, Linda

I've got Arthur Smith Oswin in 1841, 1851 and 1861, and in 1871 with his wife Jessie (nee Osmond). They married in 1870. I've then found her in 1901 and 1911. But I can't find either of them in 1881 or Jessie in 1891. Arthur was born in Harley Street, London and was an engraver . Jessie Osmond was born at 87 Strand, London, where her mother was listed as hotel keeper in 1861; father John was a coffee house keeper, born Devon c1799.

Any help finding Arthur and Jessie in 1881 and Jessie in 1891 much appreciated.
