On this day the 21st September 1856 (154 years ago) my great great grand father’s younger sister was born. Mary Frances Davey was one of nine children to Isaac William Davey (b.1821) and Ann ‘Nancy’ Le Breton (b.1827). Her siblings in order of age were: Isaac, William, Ann E., Esther, Cecelia, James, Mathilda and Selina.
Here is Mary’s Timeline and what I have found out do far:
