Estimated Birth Year: abt 1880
Relation: Granddaughter
Gender: Female
Where born: Waldrage, Durham, England

Civil Parish: Stranton
County/Island: Durham
Country: England

obviously a child of a daughter of the Snowdon family


????????


Marriages Dec 1878 (>99%)

BREWIS James Hartlepool 10a
SNOWDON Annie Hartlepool 10a 158


and it looks from the censuses that Annie was the Snowdon's eldest child.
