Wow, great post Mike, and lovely to try to get your Bible back with the family. I guess the best chance is to find descendants of Mary Jane MAYWELL born 1858. I appreciate this site isn't aimed at finding living relatives, but I hope we can help point the way, if there is one.

There are just 2, yes two, Maywell PRs within this site's database, but I'm pleased to find our target;
