They lived at Summer Lodge (a lodging house) in New Street, Kenilworth. Summer Lodge is a substantial house of quality, still standing - how did Elizabeth come to own it?

      1881 Census: High St, Kenilworth, Warks. Unmarried, Age 33, Lodging House Keeper. Date of birth is 3 years out, but Avril Newey has confirmed this is the correct Lucy.

      6 Jun 1881: Lucy is already pregnant when she marries Henry Holmes, a joiner/carpenter in St Nicholas Church, Kenilworth. Henry was the son of William Holmes (a Kenilworth wheelwright) and Sarah. Henry is 26 years old, Lucy is 36, though she gives her age as 33.

      Lucy & Henry move to Lythe House, High Street, Kenilworth, another substantial lodging house which Lucy owns in her name.

      9 Aug 1881: Lucy has a son, Claudius (grandfather of Avril Newey).

      One evening, in July 1906, Claud came home from work to find Lucy Anne dead, her head on her arms at the kitchen table. A neighbour, who he called, said, 'Let her rest, my lad, she was worn out'. Claud adored her, all who knew her said of her that she was a 'lovely, gentle lady'. She is buried in St. Nicholas churchyard. there is no stone, my grandfather made a wooden cross, now gone, but I know the plot.
