Maud was one of my great-grandmothers. She was born in the third quarter of 1886 to Thomas and Jemimah (née Bradley), and her birth was registered in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.
In 1891, the 2 year old Maud was at home (near the Milton Brampton Iron Works in Hoyland Nether) with her parents, aged 27 and 23, and her uncle Arthur – her mother’s brother, aged 32 – who was visiting at the time of the census.
By 1901, the family were living at 12 High Street, Hoyland, and 12 yr old Maud had been joined by two siblings – George aged 9 and Marion aged 7.
They were still at 12 High Street in 1911, with no further additions to the family.
Maud’s marriage to George Arthur Chambers was registered in Barnsley in the first quarter of 1913.
