b.1885 – d.1906
Minnie’s birth was registered in the 1st Quarter of 1885 in the District of Fulham. She was born on the 11th January at her parent’s home at 54 Station Road, Shepherds Bush.
The General Register Office (GRO) shows her mother’s maiden name was NIND. With that information we can trace the marriage of her parents which occurred in the 2nd Quarter 1884 in the Registration District of Kensington. The marriage actually took place at the Parish Church of St James, Norlands, Kensington on the 22nd June 1884.
Charles Albert Judd, 20, bachelor, Bricklayer. Father William Robert Judd, also a bricklayer
Ada Nind, 17, spinster, no occupation shown. Father Charles Nind, a Butcher. (Shown as Cattle Dealer in 1891 census)
The residence of Charles Judd is shown as 16 Kennilworth Street with Ada living possibly next door at 17 Kennilworth Street. The official witnesses to the wedding were a Walter Francis Richardson and a Jane Ellens.
Minnie was their first child although they did go on to have another 8 children consisting of 5 boys and 3 more girls. The births of all these children were recorded in the Fulham Registration District in the name of Judd and with a mother’s maiden name of Nind.

But no Minnie!
The reason for this is that on the night of the census Minnie was staying as a visitor at 2 The Elms, Acton, Middlesex, with Minnie’s grandparents. The census recorded who was in the house ‘at the time it was taken’ not who lived at the house, hence why people could be missing either through work or just because they went for a walk.
