Summary

After Agnes Busby's (née Smart) husband James died, Amy looked after Ken, Evelyn, and Peggy Busby after school, while Agnes Busby was out at work. At that time, the Pernell's lived near George Bett's School (the actual building was pulled down in the second part of the 20th century). As well as looking after her sister's children, Amy also looked after her own children of course. All this in a couple of rooms, with no running water; water was obtained from a tap in the yard (which included a horse stable), as reported by E. Busby. After he came home from work (unloading coal from barges), her husband John ('Jack') walked the children home to Greenfield Rd.

Notes

It would appear that Amy was baptised 10 Feb 1907, in Oldbury (unconfirmed).
