Have found William & Susanna Davies in 1871C & 1881C, but she not listed- at least as Edith - on the latter. 1911C gives her birthplace as Hopton Heath- some way from Clun but where the youngest of Susanna's and William's children, Farime, was listed as born in 1881C!!

Clun 20 K W of Ludlow- on border of Wales . Clun is a reg. district in its own right

1881C. Her family are living Clungunford All the birth years seem completely bizarre on this census- but could be that : Mary Ann b. 1866/7 was not baptised until Alice Jane was born in 1871: Herbert was entered as Albert in 1881C: Alice and Susanna are both entered as 2 years younger than they actually were: Edith could either have been entered as Elizabeth, also 2 years too young, or omitted altogether if there was an actual Elizabeth : and no idea what name Farime was registered as!!!
