    • Thanks to Lesley Webster for the following 'potted history' of Frances:
      Frances Howes’s parents were Joseph & Ann Howes, first cousins who married in 1844 in Oundle. Frances was the third of their twelve children, and was probably named after her maternal grandmother, Frances Hall.

      Joseph was a butcher living in West Street, Oundle. He died on 20 January 1879 from typhoid fever. an epidemic which was also responsible for the deaths of two of his children. His wife Ann died on 18 March 1879 from cancer of the stomach and the mouth. They are buried in Oundle Municipal Cemetery.

      Frances married Arthur William Major in 1874. He was a nurseryman and florist with a shop in Market Place, Oundle. His parents, who married in on 17 Jul 1843 in Little Houghton, Northants, were James Major, a gardener (who was responsible for landscaping Oundle’s Municipal Cemetery) and Martha Campion, a corset maker.

      Frances and Arthur had two daughters and four sons (one of whom died in infancy) all born in Oundle. Their eldest son, Alfred Edwin Arthur Major, was my paternal grandfather.

      By the end of the 19th century most of the family had moved away from Oundle. In 1901, Arthur and Frances were living in Camberwell (south-east London), where Arthur worked as an insurance agent. He died in 1917. Frances died in 1924 in Southampton where her second son, William, lived.
