Notes for Margaret Kate KNIBBS:

Also known as: Daisy

Margaret with two of her older sisters, Mary and Winifred, we think in about 1890 when she would have been 10 years old. (click to enlarge)


Margaret appears in the 1901 census living at Banstead, Surrey, England with her father and step-mother:
Margaret Kate Knibbs 21 Teacher of Corken Banstead Surrey

I've been unable to find any definition of "Corken" as given in her occupation. The most logical explanation is that it was "Cooking", perhaps?


In 1911, Margaret was living and working at 39 Bromfield Road Chelmsford:
Agfness Russell Head 36 Single Teacher High School Westmoreland Kendall
Margaret Knibbs Head 30 Single Manageress School Hotel Banstead Surrey

The hotel is listed as a private dwelling and accommodated seven children, one teacher and a domestic servant.

Margaret and Samuel didn't have children
