In 1901 census Maud Emily THAYER was a ladies maid with the COLES family in Binegar. There were 2 sons of an age to father a child!(See below)
1907 shows her in a family photograph in Rodney Stoke.
In 1911 census she was in Brean in the house of Jesse Hawkings as a houseworker.
In 1912 she emigrated to America to join her brother Henry in Auburn, NY state.
The family story is that she had a child and aged 4yrs left him at home.
In the 1911 censuses for the family there does not appear any child born around the possible time frame. GRO shows no child with mother's maiden name THAYER, nor any child named COLES with no mother's maiden name in the time frame or area.
Is this just a family story?
