    One of my relatives was a Hannah Hughes but I do not know anything about her background, we never spoke of such things. I think she probably married about 1918.

    Hi Chris,
    I just worked back from the 1911 census with the names you gave, on the 1901 census they were living in labourer dwellings cazneu st no children at that point, family tales can get a bit mixed up, a distant reative of mine was told our ggg/grandfather was pushed down the stairs in a fit of temper because he did,nt make a hat quick enough, when she got the death cert he died of TB, the Irish births are right but a generation earlier.
