Elizabeth 'Betty' Allen: Intrigue

Recently I was discussing with my mother the news regarding Harriet BARLOW (née Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958) and Mary BACON (née Mary ALLEN 1871-1951). We were chatting about Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) and if they ever had visits from other members of the family (Daniel and Ziller moved from Bradley Yard, Swallownest, Yorkshire and lived the rest of their lives at Langley Street, Darnall, Sheffield, Yorkshire). My mother happened to mention that they brought up a young girl known by the name of Betty, and Betty would occasionally visit. Immediately I recalled the census record shown below which records Elizabeth aged 9 and described as a niece; undoubtedly this is Betty.

The England and Wales Census 1891 records the following:

FHJ Ref: 007

My mother went on to say how in November 1949, Betty attended Ziller's funeral, but my mother could not remember any details regarding her family background.

Was Elizabeth really a niece or maybe a child from another relationship? The mystery and intrigue continues.

2008-09-22 This weekend I spoke with my aunt and she understands that after Betty's father died Betty was 'adopted' by Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949). Apparently her mother was already dead. On getting married Betty moved to Bury, Lancashire.

While I was busy replying to the contributor of my previous post I was contacted by a grandson of Harriet BARLOW (née Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958), another sister of my great grandmother Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949). He has provided me with a great deal of information regarding the descendants of Harriet BARLOW (née Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958) together with permission to publish this photograph of Harriet taken about 1918.

I have added the information to my GEDCOM which greatly extends my family tree along yet another branch.

Here are a few brief details of Harriet and Henry:

Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958 was born at Little Gringley, Clarborough, Nottinghamshire in 1887 and married Henry BARLOW 1870-1959 on the 23rd July 1903 at the Registry Office in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. Henry BARLOW 1870-1959 was born at Askham, Nottinghamshire in 1870. Henry and Harriet had six children, Harriet died on the 30th January 1958 at Shirebrook, Derbyshire and Henry died March 1959 also at Shirebrook, Derbyshire. They are buried at Shirebrook Cemetery, Shirebrook, Derbyshire.

Harriet BARLOW (née Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958) gave birth to a son, Albert ALLEN 1898-1918 (England and Wales Census 1901 - born 1898 in Elkesley, Nottinghamshire) but did not marry Henry BARLOW 1870-1959 until 23 July 1903. Army records describe Albert as Albert Allen BARLOW, so it appears that he took the BARLOW family name after the marriage. Albert was killed in World War 1. - Courtesy the family of Henry BARLOW 1870-1959 and Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958.

2010-01-21 Albert Allen BARLOW 1898-1918 was killed in action, France, 1918, World War I.
