Notes for Florence Townshend
Florence's father was Dr William Beckwith Carr who died when she was very young and Dr Charles Bryan Townsend  bought William's medical practice in Long Eaton, Derbyshire. In doing so he met Florence's mother, Mary Ann (Marian) (nee Sweet), and fell in love with her. Marian was initially reluctant to marry as she already had four children by William. Charles' mother Agnes wrote to Marian encouraging her to marry Charles and this they finally did on 14 November 1878. Charles adopted Marian's children and changed their surname to Townshend.
Florence married Joseph Hayes on 1 Feb 1898 (3).
