Hi Shelia,

Could you have a look on the 1901 cenus for an Annie Budd b c1779 i'm not sure where she was born but I know that she married my GG Uncle William Phillips in Staines in 1902 and they lived in Teddington.

Hope this is enough to go on?

Hi Sheila,

I check my addresses on You don't have to register or pay for it and it will search the census records and give you quite a lot of information without having a look at the original copy.

Just thought it may help!
