Dorothy Mudge, Nee Rowls was born down the docks. When she was 10 she moved with her family out to Ely.

A lot of my family lived in the docks my grandparents did, although my grandmother was born in town in a little cottage. Of course they are not there now. She was bought up in Victoria Place, which is where the little market is now. I expect they are buried in St Johns. My other Grandmother was born in Bridgewater and came over via Ilfracombe and never went back. She married my grandfather in St Johns church.
