Three more stories for you today. Two are from the inebriate reformatory Forgotten Women Friday. You can now read about Elizabeth Jones,later Elizabeth Wannell, who story fits many of our categories and Ellen McCarthy, later Ellen McQuinlan but who was know by several other names. We also have the account of Florence Mary Pettifor-Catchpole from The Mount and her interesting Quaker family.

Don't forget that you can volunteer for the new Forgotten Women Friday research day on 11 August. Details can be found here.

We have also added some resources to the Poverty stories page.
