Clara Miniken & Bertha Miniken
I would love to know more about these two spinster sisters who lived in Worthing from the mid 1870s until their deaths. Clara was born in 1845 and Bertha in 1849, both in London. Clara died on 4 February 1919 and Bertha on 28 February 1928. Their address in Worthing was 28 Teville Road, sometimes referred to as "Springfield Lodge". Although neither married, Bertha was apparently engaged at one time, but her fiance died. This would probably have been around 1900. They were apparently associated with a church in Worthing (Bertha donated some silver in memory of her fiance) but which one? Any information about these two ladies and their lives in Worthing would be very gratefully received.
