Thank you Helen, that is the family but I have them being born 10 years earlier,
my grandmother was ADA but she was married in 1906 and born 1885 and I
thought Jessie and Lucy were both born a couple of years after her.

Thanks again

I'm looking for 2 of my grandmother's sisters JESSIE born approx 1887
and LUCY BEARD born approx 1886

Their mother and father were ANN (Ousey) and ALFRED. Would like to find them on the 1901 and 1911 census and whether they married.

ANN AND ALFRED MARRIED IN SHOREDITCH IN 1883.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks Sandra
