The 1911 census shows her ‘assisting in the business’ with her mother Catherine, a widow, who is recorded as being ‘Grocer At Home Own Account’. They have with them Donald Pike Fairweather, brother of Elizabeth, his wife & their baby. The address is given as 167 William Street and has 6 rooms. The shop with living quarters above maybe?
In 1901 father Donald Fairweather is still alive, described as ‘Grocer Own Account’ with Elizabeth his assistant and their address is 11 Caledonian Street.
This feels to me as if it could have been a corner shop. And why the change in the address? Although when my home was build in 1910 it was numbered 122 and then at some time changed to 84.
