    1. [THEATRE-UK] STEWART Bolton
    2. Hi Chris I notice that, when I replied to you, I was talking about the girl who was dancing at Treharris.. However, her surname was given as STUART. I didn't notice the change being very busy at the time. But, it still could be the same, if the period is right because the census takers often put down the spelling in their head, without necessarily checking. since that would have been, I would have thought, a Welsh census taker, it could turn out any way. After doing thousands of transcriptions, I've learnt never to take anything for granted! - Regards Glenda ----Original Message----- From: theatre-uk-request@rootsweb.com [mailto:theatre-uk-request@rootsweb.com] Sent: 27 July 2018 11:39 To: theatre-uk@rootsweb.com Subject: THEATRE-UK Digest, Vol 13, Issue 6 Send THEATRE-UK mailing list submissions to theatre-uk@rootsweb.com To subscribe or unsubscribe via email, send a message with subject or body 'help' to theatre-uk-request@rootsweb.com You can reach the person managing the list at theatre-uk-owner@rootsweb.com When replying, please edit your Subject line so it is more specific than "Re: Contents of THEATRE-UK digest..."

One was my grandmother - but my father was clear that at least two were on the stage. As far as I am aware, most lived into the 20th Century - but I have yet to look for all their marriages and look for them in the 1901 and 1911 census. Now that more and more marriage Parish Records are appearing on line - I will redouble my efforts. Many thanks for your response.

I know that STEWART is a common name and the census only says she was a Scottish resident - but she may have been born in BOLTON nevertheless. Probably not the same but it's just possible. Have you looked at them in 1911 census?

She was a recitalist who used the stage name "Miss Ransom Taylor". She was trained at the Royal Academy of Music in 1900. I have made a website for her: https://missransomtaylor.wordpress.com <https://missransomtaylor.wordpress.com/> Any further information or suggestions would be wonderful as I think I have found out about all I can at the moment. One of her uncles was, at one time, selling or demonstrating gramophones. I would love to think that there is a recording of Bessie out there somewhere!

What this means - I haven't a clue - my guess would be music hall. Are there any sources I should be looking at?
