Mabel Sanders (Sep Q 1876 Newton Abbot?) was daughter of William and Susan(na) Sanders. In 1881 she was with her parents in Kingsteignton, Devon, but was away from home in 1891.

The 1891 index has a possible entry for her (as Mable) living in Herefordshire. I would welcome full details of the entry, please.

There is nothing I can recognise on 1901, by which time it is quite likely she would have married - if still alive. Any assistance or advice to help me determine which would be appreciated. It may be of relevance that she was the only one of his siblings who did not attend her brother's funeral in 1919.

You got the census ref, Peter. :)

I can't see what happens to Mabel after 1911. Several marriages after 1911 census and matching deaths for a Mabel SANDERS without the middle name Louisa.

Many thanks, Dave and Peter. You've found her!

The 1901 entry is interesting. Presumably, as lodging house keeper, Hannah would have been responsible for completing the census return so the fact that she refers to Mabel as "daughter" could be an accurate description of their relationship. Surely she would have had no reason to pretend otherwise. Could this mean that, at 14, Hannah had an illegitimate child who was then raised by Hannah's parents as their own? Time for a certificate.

I think Mabel assumed the name Louisa for reasons of her own.

From the report of the funeral of brother Mark Sanders in 1919 I have identified his siblings except for one recorded ambiguously simply as "Miss Sanders", which could refer to either Hannah or Mabel.
