Well, this prompt for the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge was a bit easier for me to write, if only because I am proud of the work I’ve been able to do to uncover so many ancestors!
This week I am writing about Alice Weatherhead. Alice was my 2nd great grandmother and mother to Alice McGlynn.
Alice Weatherhead was born on 9 Sept 1856, daughter of George Weatherhead and Frances Cumberpatch. She was baptized on 30 Jan 1859.

After the death of her first husband, she married Thomas McGlynn. (In this record the name is spelled as McLean. Note that Thomas signed here with this spelling, although he will sign differently in other records)
