Janet was born on 7th May 1891 at 16 Lamb Street, Glasgow, to Robert and Annie (née McGunnigal).

I believe that by 1911 she was living south of the border. Having been unable to trace a Janet Conway of the right age either side of the border, there is a Glasgow-born Jenny Conway of roughly the right age listed on the English 1911 in Huddersfield working as a nurse in an asylum.

Janet, who had already fallen pregnant with a baby girl, married David Harrison BRENNAN in Darlington in the first quarter of 1916; and they went on to have another 3 daughters, among them my paternal grandmother.
