Marriage
According to Annie's great-grand daughter, Mary Carter, Annie was 4 months pregnant when her husband Burton Bailey committed suicide. Annie's daughter from her first marriage, Annie May Bailey, married the brother, James Sterry, of her second husband, Walter Sterry. According to the family, Walter had a fish round and sold cockles and whelks at country fairs. He was 46 when he married Annie and took on the responsibility of looking after her six children still living. After Walter died in 1955, Annie continued to live at Rickinghall for quite a while but eventually went to live with her daughters Lillian Ethel and Matilda Joyce in Essex. 1939 UK Register Hartismere R.D.
