Looking for my mother's siblings/decedants. My mother's maiden name was Vera Drinkwater. If she were still alive she would be approx 90 years of age. She was born in Knutsford, Cheshire. Her father died when she was very young, and her family was then split up (I know she had at least one brother and sister). As a very young girl my mother was placed in the Knutsford workhouse, working in the laundery. Later, as a young woman, she was placed into Service working in the kitchen at Dunham Hall, Cheshire. She later married my father, James (Jim/Tim) Nolan of Broadheath,, Altrincham, Cheshire.
