      The original Ash tree chart received from Cliff Minter showed Mabel as having two unnamed children, a boy and a girl. The boy was shown as being a sergeant in the City of London Police. Beneath was a dotted line to 'Boy. Police in Melbourne, Australia'. Mabel was shown as having married twice, first to 'Thornborough - died 1921', then to 'Muncey'. The chart doesn't make it clear which of Mabel's two husbands was the father of the two children. Subsequent research has shown that the girl was Dorothy Eleanor THORNBORROW and the boy Eric C THORNBORROW.
