Who's related to who?


Everyone seems to be either called Ann(e), or related to the Walkers, or both. So, if like me, you're confused as to who's related to who, here are some family trees showing where everyone fits in.

Each individual is shown with their residence (in real life), dates of birth & death (or age at death), and their date of marriage (where relevant). Orange boxes indicate being mentioned in the diaries and appearing in GJ; green boxes indicate being mentioned in the diaries (work in progress).

Vere Hobart

I've recently seen a tweet from @SRiocain that links the Walkers to Vere Hobart, Lady Stuart and the de Rothesays, via the Priestleys and the MacLeans. An amazing coincidence.
And another from @SRiocain, identifying Vere Hobart as being Isabella Norcliffe's 5th cousin.
