1897-1901

We are not sure on the circumstances of the marriage/separation but Mary Ellen was living with a Thomas Brookes as his ‘wife’ by 1901 in Catshill, Shire Oak, Brownhills, (although they did not marry until 1938, after William’s death) with a son, William, born in 1900.William is living back at home. In the 1911 census she is still living back in the Cannock area , in Abbey St, Green Heath, with Thomas Brookes as his ‘housekeeper’ but using her married name Shaw with 4 children, William Thomas Shaw (b.1900), Thomas Shaw (b.1904), Percy Shaw (b.1906) and Bertie Shaw (b.1909). We are not sure whether William Thomas Shaws father was William Shaw or Thomas Brookes, but it appears the couple separated before 1901.
