Not my Mary Guest, I'm afraid - but thank you.

My Mary was Mary Waters Guest - became Mary (Waters) Thomas. I think she may well have invented or adopted the surname Cook - adopted seems likely because I've been unable to find a marriage to a Mr Cook yet it seems possible that this is Jessie's 'real' father's surname as why would Mary have not registered Jessie under her surname (Guest)?
