Sarah was my husband's great grandmother and mother of Ellen Brooks.
She was born in 1847 to Thomas and Harriett in Beaminster, Dorset and was baptised at Lady St Mary, Wareham, Dorset on 31st October 1847.
Her father was a railway labourer and so the family moved to where there was work.
At the time of the 1861 census they are living in Church Hill Lane, Haslemere, Surrey.
Sarah married William Brooks in Marylebone, London in 1869. The family lived in Clarendon Street and Hampden Street, Paddington, London.
Sarah was widowed in 1905 and the 1911 census shows her living with her daughter Ellen and family at 50 Portnall Road, Paddington .
Sarah died later that year at the age of 64.
