Elizabeth ALBERY c1886

My paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Albery, appears on the 1891 census, (aged 5 and born in Lindhurst,) as grand daughter to Frank and Ann Albery of Chithurst. I can't find a birth certificate and don't know who her parents were.

She married my dad's father, William Harold John Larrington, in 1914 and the name on the marriage certificate is given as Elizabeth Annie Compton, giving her father's name as Frank William Compton, "deceased". (Maybe a previous marriage or a step father?)

She's down as Annie Elizabeth Larrington on the next marriage to John Ewart Slaven in 1918, claiming to be a spinster and on her final marriage to Thomas Crabtree in 1922 she's Elizabeth Ann Slaven, widow! She died in 1938 as Elizabeth Ann Crabtree, my father having registered her death.

On 1891 census there's another grand daughter, 4 month old Daisy Albery. I have her birth certificate and her mother is Ellen Albery, but Daisy and Elizabeth may have been cousins rather than sisters.
