I wonder if anyone can help me with this little mystery:
Thomas DILKS, bn 1825 Thornton, parents: Thomas DILKS and Martha FUKES.
He had two wives - Caroline (surname unknown), Eliza GODFREY then..
he married Mary BROADBENT, Dec Qtr 1884.I think she started life as a GEARY, bn abt 1838, as in 1881, she was widowed and living with John GEARY and his family, listed as sister.At that time (and in 1891 and 1901), she had three BROADBENT children with her.
I think I've managed to track her back to 1841 (she was born abt 1838) - first husband Benjamin BROADBENT + various other BROADBENT children.
I would love to hear from anyone who can help. Thanks in anticipation.
