Marion Fourdrinier Folker was
born on 7 April 1896 at 11 Havelock Place in Hanley, Stoke upon Trent, Staffordshire and was the only child of Herbert Henry and Eliza Georgena Folker.

The census of 1901 records the family living at 11 Havelock Place in Hanley, Staffordshire. However, the census of 1911 shows 19 Havelock Place in Henry's own writing, although it is the same house.

On 12 May 1925, Marion married Frederick Walter Bustard at St.Edward the Confessor Catholic church in Finchley Road, Golder's Green. Her home address was given as 11 Hayes Crescent in Golder's Green. At that time Frederick was a Tobacco Merchant's Clerk living in Forest Gate.

Son Edward Harcourt Bustard was born in Golder's Green on 6 January 1926.

She was present at the death of her uncle Alexander John Lodge at 3 Ashley Court, Frognal Lane, Hampsted on 23 April 1950. Her address remained as 11 Hayes Lane in Golder's Green.

On 17 June 1965 when Marion was 69 she died in Whittington Hospital in Islington, it is believed as a result of being a pedestrian in an accident with a bus. The certificate notes that an inquest was opened then adjourned without ever being resumed.
