Transcription of article


A well-educated middle-aged Widow seeks situation as HOUSEKEEPER to Lady or Gentleman where servant is kept.  Highest references.

Address:  Mrs Grey, Wickhamford Mill, near Evesham.


Who was Mrs Grey?  No one with the surname of Grey has ever lived in Wickhamford.  Mrs Grey did not live in Wickhamford at the time of the 1881 census.  Presumably she was housekeeper to the Smith family at the Mill for a short period of time before obtaining a position elsewhere.
