Grace Wood Wife Married 25 Born Cambridge
Winne Wood Dau 8 Born Cambridge

Alan Ray-Jones writes:

The census doesn't tie up with Eileen Welcher's recollections in two ways: that her mother Winfred was born in Birmingham, and that Winifred's father Harry was a tailor. I asked her about this (in 2003) and she replied "Nan seemed quite sure that she was born in Birmingham, and I expect she was right, Her scatty father had probably forgotten by 1901! I feel that Harry Wood was a tailor all the time, both before and during and after living over the tobacconist shop. There was a fire at this shop, and this caused the family to move back to Cambridge. As for being the son of George Tarrant Wood, I presume he must have been. otherwise the cricketer would not have been Nan's grandfather."
Harry Wood, Lodging House Keeper, 42, his wife Fanny Grace Wood, 36, daughter Ethel Wood, 17, 'at home', and May Wood, 13 and Stanley Wood, 11, both at school.
