My Grandmother's Aunt was Eliza Elstone, born in 1862 in Bramshott Hampshire to James Elstone and his wife Mary Denyer. In 1887 Eliza married Joseph Parslow in Kingston Upon Thames and together they raised a family of four children.
- Lilian Sophie born 1890 in Ontario Canada
- Emma Mary born 1893 in Ontario Canada
- Richard Henry born 1895 in Ontario Canada and died 1897 in Kingston Surrey
- Dorothy Edith born 1898 in Kingston Upon Thames Surrey
So where was the shop and what sort of shop was it? Uncle Joe had a second hand and antiques shop in in Woking and the family can be traced at an address in Monument Road Woking during the 1921 - 1923 period. The 1901 Census shows the family living at Chertsey Street Woking, which is parallel to the work address, so that was a fairly easy commute to work!
There is so much work still to do with this family line. There was all sorts of stories from my Grandmother, a daughter, was killed by a Doddlebug during the war, twin boys called Pip and Squeak. All stands of mystery, some of which have been unravelled, although not fully. The daughter "killed by a Doddlebug" was in fact not killed and research has shown that she married and raised her family not more than 50 miles from where I am now sitting!
