Notes for Dorothy Lilian M KNIBBS:

For some reason in 1911, Dorothy was staying at the house of Albert Jakings and his wife. Not sure of the circumstances. They were living at 11 Churton Place, Belgrave, London:
Albert Jakings Head Married M 26 Electrician in Charge of Plant Islington London
Edith Lily Jakings Wife (married 1 year) F 19 Poplar London
Dorothy Edith Jakings Daughter F 4 Months Pimlico London
Dorothy Lilian Knibbs Visitor F 13 School Poplar London

I wonder if there was a family connection and Dorothy was perhaps there to help with the new baby. There was an Albert Jakings who married a Lily Bunting during q1/1910 in Poplar. london, but I don't recognise either name yet.

Notes for Anthony G CANT:

Anthony married a girl named Jennifer Elizabeth Hedges.
__________

He started his working life as an air traffic controller at London airport. After he married, he and his wife found a house they loved and bought it. Story has it that they couldn't find a carpet shop for miles and miles. So, Tony saw the opportunity, thought he would go into business and opened one. It took off and succeeded so quickly, he opened a second one which was run by his sister Maureen.
