All in all Emily Weddall had eleven siblings. Seven step-siblings, and a half brother from her father’s first marriage. She also had an older sister and two brothers. Her step family as well as her half brother were more than twenty years older than her. It is possible that she did not know her father’s first family very well if at all.
Emily certainly came from a large family, however by the time she was in her early twenties few of them were around in fact only her older sister Miriam was still alive.
