And her folks 1881 Henry Skeggs and family
Henry SKEGGS 46 ..., Devon, England Labourer and Elizabeth SKEGGS Wife 44 ..., Devon, England Edward SKEGGS 12 Gibraltar
also born in Canada where William in 1860 - cannot find him in 1881 but 1891 he is in Gosport - also Cecilia who I think died as a child
In 1891 and 1901 census Henry shows as born in Tewin Herts
We think Tewin misread in 1881 as Devon by enumerator as so close to wife's place of birth.
and from IGI we have found in Tewin
1901 John Skeggs with Emily and Leonard
1901 Edward Skeggs and family
1901 Henry Skeggs with new wife Ellen + William now from Jersey
