I  believe that Frederick summers was my great great grandad. He had a son William who was born in 1892, sadly Frederick died shortly after. The 1901 census lists Annie A Summers, step daughter, aged 14, and William Summers, stepson, aged 8, plus Frances A Freeman, now married to Joseph Freeman, and a son Thomas Freeman, aged 3.  *
