Looking for Browns and Smiths....
I have some gaps in my family tree that I am struggling to fill.
My great grandmother was born Ann(ie) Weyman in 1855. In 1873 she married John Middleton Brown in Bethnal Green and they had at least 2 children, my grandmother Florence Maud and her brother Harry. They lived then at Nile Street Hoxton. John Middleton Brown died on 14.1.1887 when their address was 12 Brewer Street North. the. At the 1891 census Annie was living with William Smith an upholsterer, aged 31, born London City, and Florence, Harry, and William their month old son, also William Smith, at 17 Brewer Street Clerkenwell.
The family then moved nearby to 28 Buxton Buildings Buxton Street. Florence and Harry were married from there. Annie and William were still living in Buxton Buildings when Annie died at the age of aged 86 in October 1940 in the bombing of Lady Alice Owens school. (I learnt about this tragic event with the help of a Curious Fox Member for which I am very grateful). I believe that both her husband William Smithand their son William were both still living at that time.
I cannot find any record of Annies second marriag or the birth of William, although I have recently found that William Junior married Alice Bingle in 1921 and that they had at least 2 children named William Albert, and Alice. They lived in Great Percy Street befoe moving to hOLLOWAY. Does anyone have any of them in their family tree?
