i only found out about this lady today..rather intersting story...she couldnt have children of her own so my grandmother gave her my aunt avy to bring up..everyone knew her as aunt cil.....as she was my grandmothers sister..so i tried looking in the 1901 census for my grandmother in the hope of finding the real name for cil...but apparently my grandmother doesn exist...lol
