Margaret was born in 1853.[1]

Margaret married John Elgood Punchard in Hackney, London in 1874. (Jul-Sep).[2].

Margaret was known as Maggie , and registered as such on the 1891 census. [3] She was also noted as being a Widow at the time, so John, her first husband, must have passed by then.

Margaret married William Frederick May, in 1896 (Apr - Jun), in West Ham, Essex, England.[4] In 1901, she was living with, in Katherine Rd., East Ham, Essex.[5]

In the 1911 Census, Margaret was living at 45 Tremaine Rd, Anerley/Penge, in SE London.
