Hi for the peeps
1901 census is confusing to say the least.
Orford Depot, Warrington
Annie Millward wife 28 husband Sgt 1st Lpool Regt South Africa, born Halifax N.S
Wm James 6 born Halifax
Robert 4 bn Barbados W.I
Vincent Arthur 2 bn Cape Town S.A
(gee they moved around!)
This is where is gets really strange
Arthur KIRKLAND 2yrs bn Cape Colony father looks like widr?? Sgt 1st Lpool Regt S.A
Amelia Kirkland 4yrs bn St Lucia W.I
Jenny 6 bn Nova Scotia, Harry 7 bn N.s
Surely these Kirkland kiddies belong to another Soldier and are staying with Annie?
Let me know what you think.
Looks like they all moved around together, if their Dad was widowed, perhaps Annie took them in??
Cheers
Oznannie
