I am looking for information about the Sumner family in accordance with the information below. I am trying to solve a puzzle that's been in my family for a long time and I have come to a dead end in my investigations. Basically my grandmother, Alice Harrison, was born in 1889 in Northwich Cheshire. Her mother, Maggie Evelyn Harrison, was unmarried when she was born although she married her father, Thomas William Sumner in 1890. My GM appears on the census of 1891 and 1901 with her family in Cheshire but then our family have no knowledge of her whereabouts until she turns up in Bradford, West Yorkshire in 1909 when she gets married. She then appears on the 1911 census in Bradford. The mystery is why she moved to Bradford which in those days would have been a long way from Northwich and because of her age (about 12). There are rumours she was put in service or she was adopted either to her mothers sister or out of the family although her marriage certificate has her parents surname as Sumner on it. have heard that there were girls friendly society's at this time that trained girls to work in service. Do you know anything about these and if so how could I find records to see if my GM was on any lists. Regards
