My 2x Great Grandparents are John and Agnes Smith who have the Gentle children living with them in the 1881 and 1891 censuses. Do you have any information about how they came to be living with them. John Gentle the stepson is the same age as William Smith so they can't both be Agnes' children.
Anything you know about this family would be greatfully received!
My Grandmother, Victoria Dickie was staying with them in 1901 (aged 10 months). She used to tell me stories of her wild uncles sword dancing and also that her Uncles were from the Caribbean,, so I think she must have been referring to the Gentles.
