However, when Judith's mother tried to approach her family at The Shay, she was turned away. They then went to stay at the White Swan in Halifax, where her mother died.

One wonders if – perhaps – she committed suicide.

Judith said that a gentleman came in a large carriage and took away her brother, whom she never saw again.
