Discovering Miss Clarke.

In our last blog, Andrew wrote about Miss Clark’s school, and the difficulty we had identifying Miss Clark. After much detective work and hunting around on Ancestry, Births, Deaths and Marriages and Trove we have a result!
Miss Clark was not in fact the sister of Hannah Tallentire (nee Clark), but was actually her niece. Hannah Clark had a brother named Edward Hedley Clark. Edward’s daughter, Ethel Mildred, was born in 1887, and her name appears on the 1913 census as living in Campbelltown, and her occupation as teacher. It would appear that she was living, not with her sister in Campbelltown but with her Aunt Hannah.
Ancestry also yielded a photo of Miss Clark, who married William Reginald Plumb in 1916. She would go on to have children and grandchildren of her own, and died in 1969.
