 Marie was left, aged 34, with 7 (possibly 9) children. The eldest two (Lizzie Constance aged 16 and Frederick Charles Gervase aged 14) were put to a trade, Lizzie as a seamstress. That left Cecil Henry (11), Edith Mary (9), Archibald Graham Petter  (7), Harry (5) and Catherine (3), and possibly two more children (Mary Ann and Thomas) who we cannot trace. Were they taken in by one of Frederick Charles’ elder brothers (Walter Forster Petter  born 1854 and Arthur Lewis Petter , born 1855) or his sister Kate Petter (born 1859)?
