Thanks for coming back Judith, We worked on the Exeter Bertha for some time however we are now reasonably confident that Elizabeth's daughter "our" Bertha was at a training facility in Monmouthshire in 1891. Her son William was born there in 1893. It is with him that Elizabeth is living in 1921 in Leyland Lancashire. She is recorded firstly as Elizabeth Golesworthy which is crossed out and then recorded as Elizabeth Tucker, born in Honiton, Devon. We know Bertha Golesworthy, Elizabeth and John Tucker were all together in Teignmouth in 1881 and Elizabeth is recorded as "wife". We have no way of knowing if John was Bertha's father (not recorded on her baptism or birth) and no idea where Elizabeth is between 1884 (when reports of an assault on Bertha were reported in the newspapers) and 1921. (Bertha came up north and married hence William being in Leyland). Any help would be much appreciated.
Take care Carol
