Am seeking any information about my mystery ggranmother, Mary Shackleton. Family lore has it that she was well born but married far beneath her her.Her husband, Benjamin Wise, was a boatman/canalman.She was supposedly related to Ernest Shackleton, but there is no indication of how distantly, nor even if that story has any truth.
She appears in the 1881 census under her married name, Wise, and along with her children.Missing is my ggrandmother, Elizabeth Wise, who had been sent to live with relatives. Any information on this family would be helpful.Can always respond to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.Thanks! Val
