Mary Jane Swindle

Daughter of Susanna Swindle, born 1893, baptised on the 10th of December 1893 in Hexham.c

Died in 1907

PersonID 05443

Notes

1     The 1901 census lists Mary Jane and Susanna both in the Hexham workhouse - and no other Swindles. 

2    There is a strong possibility that Mary Jane was born in the workhouse in Hexham. Susannah was unable to give her own birthplace and in 1891 was living in Benwell. The most likely reason for the ability of the workhouse to 'know' that Mary was born in Hexham is that she was born at the workhouse.
