Latest updates...

As you can see above, my mother, Kate Amelia Peterson (on this site referred to as 'Kitty') married Harry Charles Higgs.

Kitty's sister Alice Mary, married David Thomas Rockliffe

Kitty's father married Alice Binning

Thus the four families became linked.  They all lived close to each other in these streets.  This is an area known as Holborn close to the official City of London
