EDITH MATTHEWS ~ Born 1877 Rugby Warwickshire, Daughter of John and Elizabeth MATTHEWS, nee SPENCER.
The family resided in Warwickshire until between 1881 and 1891. The census for Merrow, Guildford Surrey in 1891 shows John has remarried and is living with his second wife Maria, daughter Edith and son John. Another daughter Maryanne is a domestic living with the FACEY family nearby.
Family information indicates that Edith was a “nurse” and various photographs show that she probably married and raised at least three children, of whom nothing is known.
Searches of the Red Cross Documents suggest that Edith was probably a VAD during the Boer War (1899-1902).
