Information on my Todd line is particularly thin. I would appreciate it if anyone could supply me with further information. I would particularly love to find photos of the Todd family.

In the 1891 census she was shown as a dressmaker. She married Herbert Sefton on the 19th Dec 1896 in Scarborough Wesleyan Centenary Chapel. She had 9 children, two of which were twins. She brought up the family after the seperation from her husband in the early 1920's, following his return from the war. All the family stories relate that times were hard in the 1920's and she got a job to look after the family, in Scarborough's open air swimming pool. Born in Scarborough was in the census as a bricklayer and builder.William married Hannah Pottage 10th Dec 1870 in Scarborough. They had 7 children all born in Scarborough.
