Alice Hudson (1873-??)

Alice Mary Murgatroyd (1873-c1959)

Alice Mary Murgatroyd was born in 1873. She married John (Jack) Hudson (1875-??), a bachelor aged 22 "Electrical Engineer" living at 12 Hope View Windhill, on 28th August 1897 at the Parish Church of Shipley, Yorkshire [N.Bierley in 1897Q3 Vol: 9b, Page: 406]. The witnesses were Charles Hudson (his brother), Emily Parker Murgatroyd (her sister), and Nanny Murgatroyd (her grandmother). His father John Hudson (deceased) is described as a "Cashier", and her father Henry Albert Murgatroyd an "Auctioneer".
Some of the Hudson family went to Australia in the early 1900s and Alice's grand-daughter in Tasmania is updating our knowledge of the family.
