My husband inherited a pewter tankard from his parents, and I am of the opinion that the tankard belonged to one Thomas William Warner (my husband’s maternal grandfather), who married Maud Davies. ***

In the 1901 census (ref: RG13/281 f.127 p.15) the address is stated as ‘78 Hows Street Queen Victoria’. I am also in possession of a death certificate for John Edward Davies dated 12 December 1903 stating that he died on the premises. ***
