The maternal line tends to be a bit sidelined in family history stories, so I plan to spend some time putting that right a little.
My grandmothers were Annie (Nancy) Morris, and Lily Gertrude (Gert) Timmins. I have photographs of each of them in their old age and I’ve written their stories.

My four great grandmothers are a little bit shadier. On my paternal side Sarah Emily Mills was married to Joseph Hamilton and Sarah Cotterill married James Timmins. On my maternal side Ann Elizabeth Perry was presumably married to James Morris (we can’t find a marriage record), and Mary Ann Jasper was married to Thomas Billingham.
I’ve already written about the mysterious MIllses, so I’m going to stay with the paternal side and write up the Cotterill story about whom Mandy has already done a lot of research. Julia knows a lot about Ann Perry, but we know next to nothing about Mary Ann Jasper.
