Louisa spent her childhood in East Knoyle but at 20 years old the 1891 census shows that she was staying with her married sister Martha (wife of Ton UPJOHN) in Blackwood, Monmouthshire, Wales. Within the year she would marry Henry ANDREWS and have her first child before moving to her husbands homeland of Devon, England where her 4 remaining children were born. Henry's family had been miners, although they would take labouring employment when needed. This accounts for the moving back and fore between counties. The 1911 census reveals that the family had re-located to Gilfach, Glamorganshire, Wales which was within walking distance to a number of deep cast coal mines. The census records that Louisa had 5 children all of which were still alive. On census night, 4 of Louisa's children were at home while the eldest daughter, 17 year old Alice Maud, was recorded as a domestic servant at the home of her employer (some 30 minutes away by train today) in Cardiff, Glamorganshire, Wales.
Although I have yet to find a record of Louisa's death, she is commemorated on her eldest daughter's headstone. The inscription reads:
"In Loving Memory of Emrys Harding died. Dec 4, 1954 aged 62. Also Maud his dear wife died. Jan 26, 1977 aged 83. Also Henry Andrews and his wife Louisa and his son Ernest at rest with the Lord"
