|William Aylard (1814 - 1886)|
Private Collection of James A. Aylard
Ann’s circumstance touched me, and the lack of information about her intrigued me. Why did she remain behind in Soham? Did she live into adulthood? Did she ever marry? Did she have children? Where did life take her, if apparently never to the shores of her father’s adopted American homeland?
Whatever happened to the daughter that William left behind? That is a mystery that I will explore in coming posts.
