Augusta (Knowles) Elliott b 1855 d 1947
The October 06, 1947 issue of the Gloucestershire Echo has an article about probate being granted for "Mrs. Augusta Elliott, of The Myrtles, Slapton, near Kingsbridge, Devon, formerly of High-street, Cheltenham, who died on April 17 last". This newspaper article is the only information I have been able to find that describes her as a resident of Cheltenham. She may have resided there during the evacuation of the South Hams in WWII. All of the other information about her is from Devon or from the USA. The National Probate calendar entry for 1947 lists her residence as The Myrtles, Slapton. I have located all of her census entries except for 1891, and I have a good deal of information about her travels back and forth between Slapton and the USA, but I'm trying to fill in some gaps in her timeline. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone interested in the evacuation of the South Hams who might have pointers to online resources about that period, or anyone whose family might have lived at the Myrtles. Thanks!
