    MAP of the locations of the mystery 'Battersea Brides' in proximity to the David VV-Lucy Miller-Storrington branch.

    Locations of Lavina VV-SEARS (pink), Julia Ann VV-LAKE (yellow) from the 1851 census, compared to locations of Quebec-based VV family David VV - Lucy Miller (green).

    Updated (salmon-colour) with the location of the family lot of Emma, widow of an Allan VV, who sold this lot in 1851, later purchasing a nearby lot in the same township. One child of this couple was born at Brewers Mills, a town on the east side of Cranberry Lake.

    The lots are shown on an 1860 atlas. By 1860 the Lakes had moved to the USA, and the Sears family was still at the Loughborough location, but not on the atlas, perhaps because Hezekiah Sears was a shoemaker and not a land owner? The lot to the north is Lyman Pixley whose son married a daughter of David VV. Also, for many years the Sears family had a VV man living with them, perhaps John VV, brother of David VV.

    No records yet have been found to prove blood relation of these mystery VV women to each other or to the David VV-Lucy-MILLER line. Research is ongoing.
