Allen, born in the same town, aged 25 years, and working as a railway servant, and also her son, W. S. Allen aged 10 months, also born in St Pancras Middlesex.

Thanks too to Jayne Knox, whose husband is a descendant of Mary Quigley/Tweedley, without whose family tree the information published in Patrick's People concerning this family line would be so much poorer.
