My Great-great-grandmother Frances Elizabeth Slingo was born on August 10, 1846 at Wellow, Somerset, England the fourth of six children of stone mason John Slingo and his wife Mary White. What little evidence we have suggests that she spent her childhood in Wellow. In 1861 Frances’s mother died and deprived of her mothers influence she bore an illegitimate daughter, Anne Janet Slingo in 1868.
