      Further to my earlier reply. 
      Amelia Bertha is my gggm and is on the extreme female side of my tree:
      So my mitochondrial DNA must be from Mary houndsworth. 
      My descent:
      Amelia Bertha pollard
      M. Henry cleghorn
      Bertha eliz. Cleghorn 1850
      M. John Joseph Fleming
      Bertha Jane Fleming 1883
      M. Albert George (surname redacted)
      Bertha Ellen (s. r. ) 1912
      M. Walter w Beakhust
      So we are 3rd cousins for sure and not first cousins for sure, but are we 2nd?

      > Thomas Pollard was born in London, UK, in c.1896, the English censuses of 1841, 1861, 1871 had his occupation as a shoemaker, the 1871 census also recorded him as being deaf. I gather from information taken from The Indian Family History website that he may have been employed by the East India Company.
      > I do not know anything else about Mary Houndsworth other than what I gleaned from the Indian website i.e. her marriage details Other details are that Amelia Pollard was married to a man whose surname was Foneak, whom I have been unable to find any record of on the internet. She was probably widowed when marrying my Great-great-grandfather Henry Cleghorn on 24/12/1849 in Clapham, London.
