Alice Plucknett Sternberg, my great grandmother was born in Bristol in 1856 and died in Birmingham in 1944. She was alive when I was born, but sadly I have no memory of her. I do, however have some of her belongings, such as photos and a black travel trunk with the intials A.P.S. (Alice Plucknett Sternberg) in studs.
Alice was the daughter of Francis George Sternberg and Elizabeth (née Plucknett). She grew up in Birmingham and at the age of twenty two she married twenty one year old Henry Ambrose Brown, whose parents I wrote about in ‘Richard and Mary Ellen‘
