      There\'s also a photograph of Mary Hannah Smith and her mother and daughter here:
      https://descentfromadam.wordpress.com/2011/03/17/smiths-walkers-and-psailas/
      As mentioned in my recent From Walkers to Parkinsons post, Steve Robinson and his wife have sent me a treasure trove of information about my ancestors. The photo above includes my great great grandmother Hannah Mary Smith (1829-1905) and her mother. I don’t know much else about her but it’s believed that Hannah was a relative of Sir Robert Peel, her first memory being of sitting on his knee in an open carriage, being driven through cheering crowds in Preston, Lancs. Whether I’ll ever be able to work out the connection is a different matter.

      Hannah married James Walker (see Ancestry and the Walkers of Avenham Tower post) and the photo also includes their daughter Mary Georgina Walker (1854-1898) who who married Luigi Psaila (1834-1914). I’ve just been sent an biography of Luigi so I’ll try and get permission to publish it here.


      Her parents as shown here are just a guess at this point (January 2011)
      From Mue Birwistle\'s prayerbook it might be she died 26th Dec 1905? It is hard to read.

      From Angela Kirby
      Great-grandmother Walker of Ayneham Towers, Preston, died October 26th, 1905, aged 75(? maiden name unknown (believed to be a relative of Sir Robert Peel, her first memory being of sitting on his knee in an open carriage, being driven through cheering crowds in Preston)

      …3.1 Big Bang Era, Planck Epoch Three times shorter than 10-43 seconds (Planck time). Followed by Hadron Epoch, Lepton Epoch, etc.
      …3.2 First Atoms ish about three minutes Big Bang nucleosynthesis produced most of the helium, lithium, and deuterium in the Universe, and perhaps some of the beryllium and boron.[115][116][117]. The end of the lepton epoch, about 10 seconds after the Big Bang.[1] Atomic nuclei were created in the process of nucleosynthesis which occurred during the first few minutes of the photon epoch. For the remainder of the photon epoch, the universe contained a hot dense plasma of nuclei, electrons and photons. 370,000 years after the Big Bang the temperature of the universe fell to the point where nuclei could combine with electrons to create neutral atoms. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photon_epoch. Primordial nucleosynthesis is believed by most cosmologists to have taken place in the interval from roughly 10 seconds to 20 minutes after the Big Bang,[2] and is calculated to be responsible for the formation of most of the universe\'s helium as the isotope helium-4 (4He), along with small amounts of the hydrogen isotope deuterium https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Bang_nucleosynthesis
      …3.3 First molecules. around 100,000 years, the universe has cooled enough for helium hydride, the first molecule, to form. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronology_of_the_universe#First_molecules
      …3.4 Recombination 380,000 years after the Big Bang When the temperature drops below the ionization potential, atoms become statistically favorable. Atoms (complete with bound electrons) became to dominate over charged particles 380,000 years after the Big Bang—an epoch called recombination, when the expanding Universe cooled enough to allow electrons to become attached to nuclei.[118] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom#Formation

      Notes:
      In reality Neanderthals may not have bred with humans until they met out of Africa around 50-70,000 years ago. Perhaps it should be with the “mother” of 7 daughters of Eve, although the “daughters” are thousands of years apart. Hopefully there was no extra marital infidelity, but who knows what was going on in those French caves.
      Where to fit in Mitochondrial Eve and Y chromosome Adam is still a work in process, since they lived thousands of years apart. One can only hope they were somehow married and not “single parents”.
      Then there is where to put the Biblical Adam and Eve, particularly since some ancestral lines trace back through many biblical individuals to them.
      Then where to put the date of the “creation”, around 6 pm on 22 October 4004BC, according to Archbishop James Ussher (or Usher; 1581 –1656) Primate of All Ireland. Or at nightfall near the autumnal equinox, but in the year 3929 BC, according to John Lightfoot (1602 –1675), Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.
