Default Mary Jane Wilson

Where to start? Where to start? How about at the beginning?

It all began with the marriage of Mary Jane Wilson's parents, John Kelly and Mary Dulihead, in 1841. (Marriage Certificate image below.)

They obviously arrived in Liverpool prior to the Potato Famine.

Since they were at Bostock Street in 1861, which intersects Great Homer where she was at marriage in 1872, then possibly the "Victoria" address is one of three: Victoria Terrace (2) either 188A Netherfield Road North, N or 451 Torr St, St Domingo Rd, N1 or Victoria Place, Albion St. Evertron N1. All three are nearby. The groom's address, Latimer Street is the next north/south street west of Scotland Road.

Using online Lewis's Handy Guide to Liverpool 1884 and the site Liverpool Streets A to Z.

fascinating stuff Maybea , so that would put Mary as 35 as opposed to 28 .. and if (as was proclaimed ) she had a youthful look about her , why then wouldn't she shave a few years off her age . You have my attention

I believe the Victoria Street address is the one that was changed to Beatrice Street after 1871.

It was off Great Homer Street so it was in the same neighbourhood.

I wasn't too sure where to post this but I thought there were enough elements similar to the Royal Conspiracy theory to put it here.

The Royal connection comes through her son's marriage to Royal servants in 1919. At the very least, it could be the source of some of the rumours.
