  • Notes 
    • The 1881 census gives Fanny Brighton Uttingor Utting (?) occupation dressmaker Her place of birth is stated to be St Omer British Subject France There is a contradiction regarding her age The census gives her same age as her husband born 1843 but the IGI gives an exact date in 1840 You pays your money and takes your choice
      Living in the household she has two female dressmakers suggesting to me that there may be a dressmaking business involved They have a large family of 9 children so she must be very busy
      Fanny Brightons oldest sister Ellen married Ernest Stone They owned a department store in Vienna trading under the name Stone and Blyth catering for the expatriate community there The shop can still be found at 41 Karnterstrasse just down from St Stephens Cathedral In 2005 the building was a smart mens wear shop downstairs and a casino upstairs
      The Stones had no children and Fanny Blyth became their favourite neice perhaps with great expectations However 1914 was not the best time for a shop catering for English custom and the ship did not come in for Fanny The business remained under the name Stone and Blyth for some time but under Austrian ownership
      Fannys father is believed to be a Captain Blyth a British army officer from the time of the Napoleonic war although his name is not found on the muster rolls for Waterloo There were large numbers of surplus officers often impoverished living on half pay in France unable to afford to return to England and it is thought he married there
