    Notes 
    • daughter of James Alway, builder and Rachel
      In 1871, Maria was a widow with children Jane Ann 15 and Adelaide 5
      In 1881, Adelaide has taken her stepfather's name, and there are Beatrice 10, William 7 and Mabel 5. Are they William's kids?

      We are grateful to Julie MacLaren for the following:
      Maria is my x4 grandmother who was married to Thomas Cooper before she was married to William. Thomas was the father of Jane-Ann Cooper who served as a witness at Maria and William's wedding. He was a house painter who eventually moved to London (via a possible stint in Chatham prison). I am not sure whether Adelaide is his daughter or William's.

      Jane-Ann married Benjamin Pink and went on to have three children including my great grandmother Daisy Pink (Daisy seems to be a popular Howes name!). In turn Daisy married Walter Abrams from Frome and had three children including my grandmother Violet Abrams who spoke fondly of her Howes relatives and granny Jane. We have a silver spoon that belonged to her with her initials JAC and it is treasured in the family! Violet married George Smith and remained in Bristol. They had one daughter Gillian
