Winifred Helena Bridle

RMS Victorian in a 1904 magazine illustration

Winifred Helena Bridle, sixth child, daughter of Edwin Symons Bridle and Lucy Lindsey, at the age of 20 in 1911, was employed as a General domestic servant to the family of Edward Butcher Adams, Accountant, at 129 Pathfield Road, Streatham Common. In Nov 1920, aged 30, Winifred Helena Bridle, Nurse, sailed on the RMS Victorian to Quebec, Canada, bound for WinnipegManitoba. [As yet] I've been unable to discover if she settled there, or perhaps married.

Daniel Thompson Botterill, second son of Dan Stephen Thompson Botterill and Mary Jane Harris, married Jessie Elizabeth Maslin (b. 27 Mar 1883), daughter of James Maslin and Jessie Elizabeth Dunford, on 2 Sep 1905, in Greenwich.

Daniel and Jessie then had two sons: 
  1. Joseph Daniel Botterill born 3rd quarter of 1907, died in the 1st quarter of 1908 and buried on 25 January 1908 at Charlton Cemetery (Greenwich)
  2. Daniel Thompson Botterill born in the 3rd quarter of 1908, in Greenwich
The second boy, like David Copperfield, was a posthumous child, because Daniel Thompson Botterill had died, aged 26, at 26 Inverine Road, Charlton and had been buried, on 18 January 1908, at Charlton Cemetery (Greenwich). 

Not unsurprisingly, therefore, we find that Jessie Elizabeth Botterill remarried, in 1910, to Welshman, Evelyn John Gutton Budge. Confirming that I'd found the correct spouse, Jessie Elizabeth Budge is living with her son, Daniel Tompson Batterell (sic) (2), in 1911 in Gillingham, Kent. Her new husband, however, was boarding in the household of a Henry Webb in Chatham. That doesn't seem far enough away for him to be boarding there for a work related necessity, so I suspected an estrangement, but I've found no evidence for a divorce.

In 1912, Jessie Elizabeth Budge was listed on the Electoral Register at 80 Queens Road, Peckham (second floor), a mystery in itself as she would not have had the vote until at least 1918 and only then if she had enough wealth.

Records also show that Evelyn John Gutton Budge had arrived in Quebec, Canada in Jun 1911 and appears to have travelled alone. In 1913, he crossed the border into the United States, where he appears to do Military Service during WWI and, in 1917, married nurse, Mabel Dorothy Morris. They applied for Naturalization in 1918 and he died in Los Angeles, California on 2 Sep 1969.

Jessie Budge (37) and son her Daniel (11) - the boy is listed incorrectly with his surname dittoed as Budge - meanwhile, are shown sailing on the RMS Empress of France (1913) from Liverpool to Quebec on 8 Jun 1921. Their last address in the UK was given as 5, Clarence Mansions, Bromells Road, Kent (Clapham, London) and their country of intended future residence as Canada.

Jessie Budge had bearly stepped ashore when she married, for the third time, to Gerald Foll (b. 30 May 1865), son of John Foll and Sarah Anne Linnell of Stowe, Northamptonshire, on 20 June 1921, in WinnipegManitoba. Gerald Foll died on 10 April 1947 and is buried at Brookside Cemetery, Winnipeg

Jessie Elizabeth Foll died on 24 Sep 1965 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Further searches reveal that Jessie's first cousin, Arthur Andrew Maslin, son of her father's eldest brother, Joseph Maslin, died in Vancouver, British Columbia, on 26 Dec 1955, which would explain why she was in that area.

Daniel Tompson Botterill married Edith Evelyn Benson, in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1939. The couple had two daughters. Daniel died in Winnipeg on 18 Jul 1964.
