Prior to the 1901 census GWR and his family moved from 74, Bancroft to ‘Highbury Lodge’ and HWWR moved to 74, Bancroft. From then onwards the two lines were called the “Highbury Russells” and the “Bancroft Russells”.

Carolyn confused:   Who are Nettie and May? is Nettie Percy’s wife Ann Janet Jordan? If so couples are close to each other in the photo; so it looks as is May had a connection to Ted, who did not marry.
