bullet  General Notes:

Quote from 21st Dec 1972 Letter HR Pick to S. Pick.
One tale handed down was that my great grandfather Baldwin married my great grandmother ? Bentley after eloping from a very early experimental coed Quaker boarding school at Fulneck. He was from Dublin, she from the Keighley area. The school was mentioned in history of education when I learned about it in my dip ed course I didn't know that my great grandparents had eloped from it!
(Note added 11/21/08 that the above seems ficticous as Fulneck has no record of her, Her marriage certificate says "of age" and she made a mark, possibly indicating no education)
The 1891 census has a Hannah Baldwin living with Arthur Taylor listed as a mother-in-law in Horton on park rd. See jpg file. This was later discarded as being a Bentley that was not Ann.
