Emilys brother, George William Taylor was born at St Philips, Nottingham in July 1892. 

We believe his father may have been Moses M A Kadar, a general practioner in Nottingham, orginally from the West Indies.

 

 

 

Between 1892 and 1895 we know the family moved to Norton Canes in Staffordshire. 

In 1895, his mother, Alice had another child, Lucy at Norton Canes. We are unsure of who her father was at present.

In 1901, Emmeline, 16, was working as a Domestic Servant at Hednesford Road, Heath Hayes for the Heath family who had a Butchers shop.
