Frances' mother, Mary Ellen. This photo was taken as soon as she arrived in service in Hyde at the age of 12. Sarah Ann Powell, nee Fryer, Frances' grandmother, came from a wealthy family but her father died and soon after her husband and the result was she had no money. So she took up piano teaching. It did not provide enough money and thus she sent her children, Mary Ellen and two sons and two other daughters away very young.
