That was a nice addition from the Who's Who...
Alice never married DCM - although Alice said she was a widow in 1911 and gave herself the name C-M...in 1901, she was DUDLEY shown as a housekeeper, living with DCM and his children!Such were the times that the children didn;t even get registered at birth ( although there is one more way of searching this that I haven't done yet )
Also, Walter DUDLEY married Mary Ann PIERSE...you will see a good link in one of the posts about her family...de Lacy was one of her forebears and the name was used as middle names for some descendents
DCM and his second wife divorced in 1894 ( Pro UK)and there are some messy articles in the newspapers about his 'banktruptcy' ( don;t know how Alice and chdn could stay on in Kensington with only the 50 quid he left her in his Will) and child maintenance.
Mary Ann DUDLEY ( nee PIERSE) died in 1895 in Camberwell London - I haven't been able to find when she returned but I guess she was trying help Alice with her new babies
Very timely of you to start on this family just as all this information has been put together!! We have even found photos of some of them so check out the links in the various posts. It would be wonderful if you can add any new information as its an amazing family though hard to track as they travelled so much.
Its a shame Walter didn't live long enough to witness the success of his daughters
