Afternoon - Preparing music for taking to To...?

Mrs Alcock (Emma) of Cheadle Eaves and who has been living in Brighton for some time came to Walton Villa today. She had intended to stay the weekend at the Eaves but Ridge set about and abused her so she came away.

1) Originally I thought that Emma Alcock might be a close relative of John's but it seems that she was originally Emma Burton who married a William Alcock and they lived together at a farm in Eaves Lane. I can find no connection between this William Alcock and John Alcock who wrote the diary. In the 1881 census, Emma was a widow and had her nephew James Ridge living with her. In the 1901 census, there was a widowed Emma Alcock from Cheadle who was living at Conquest Villas, Clayton, Sussex.
