    Ada was born in Blackfriars, London. She is recorded as marrying widow, Marine Engineer, James John Boyt in 1895 in Deptford who had only been married for a few months before his first wife died. They had two daughters. There is also a record of James Boyt marrying Ada Jackson in 1925. This puzzle requires more research. No 1901 record can be found but James and Ada were living at 1, Livingstone Villas, Queens Rd, Newbury with 2 daughters in 1911, at 12 Newtown Rd in 1925 & 46 Bartholomew St in 1939. James is also buried in NRC but his name does not appear in Mrs. P's Index. Source: NRC Bur Recds., Ancestry records
