I found this entry and believe it may be correct although the listing only gives initials. The initials are M A B, although giving the Bristol accent one might understand how this could happen. No other entries would seem correct.5 In the census of 3 April 1881 in Bristol City Workhouse, Stapleton, Bristol, Somerset, England, she was listed as an inmate
