    • When the family first moved here, the address was "1 Cotehele Villas", as recorded in the 1901 census. In the 1911 census Edith gave her address as 13 Cotehele Terrace, but the enumerator recorded it as "13 Station Road"

    This appears to be the house as it looks today (2015) that Frederick William Mallett, his wife Edith and their family lived in from roughly 1900 to 1940.

    • Edith was described as a widow, so obviously Frederick William died prior to the census date. She recorded her address as "13 Cotehele Terrace, Truro", but the enumerator recorded it as "13 Station Road, Truro". The house apparently still stands today (2015), but the address is Station Road, as the enumerator had it. "Cotehele Terrace" seems not to exist.

      Edith stated that she had been married for 23 years, and that she had had 11 children, with 8 of them still living. There must have been a child born and died between censuses that has gone unrecorded here.

    The date and place of this gathering is unknown, but a best guess puts it at about 1925. Florence Mallett is in the middle front, Edith (Rillston) Mallett is right front, Una Mallett is behind her. The man on the left is "Uncle Reginald", probably Reginald Goodman. The others are unidentified except as "Cousins", but one of them might be Dorothy Goodman.
