Epsom Cluster #4

WHITAKER, Isabella

b.1876 – d.1917 Isabella was quite hard to find – was she married or single? Once I found a record, I worked around it and found her birth registered in 1876. Tracing her family back, her parents, Ruth Kimberley and James Scuffham Whitaker were married at St George Southwark in June 1862. The marriage lasted… read more »

DOODY, Thomas

b.1849-d.1902 Thomas’ parents Owen Doody and Caroline Amelia Wilson married on 3 August 1845 in St Nicholas Church in Deptford, Greenwich. Four months later, on 14 December, Thomas’ older brother, Owen William was born. He was baptised on 11 January 1846 in St Alphage Church, Greenwich. It seems that Owen was the only child to… read more »

BYFORD, Walter

b.1859-d.1910 A summary of the evidence it has been possible to locate for Walter suggests an ordinary life. 1850s Walter was born on January 11th, 1859, in Hoxton, London. His parents were Walter Byford b.1821 in Clare, Suffolk and Margaret who was born in East India in 1832. Walter was baptised at St Leonards Church,… read more »

DORLEY, Harriet

b.1830/5-d.1913 Introduction Harriet was born in the early 1830s in Ramsholt. This is a small village to the east of Suffolk. It is best known for its 13th century Church of St Anne with its rare round tower, most such towers elsewhere being square. In 1831 it had a population of 215 inhabitants of which… read more »

GODFREY, Susannah

b.1860-d.1914 Introduction Susannah Godfrey. This is the name recorded in the Burial Records of Horton Estate Cemetery. It shows that Susannah, who had been a patient in Manor Asylum, was buried on the 12th of January 1914 in grave reference 825a. Death age is indicated to be 55. That would suggest a birth about 1859/1860…. read more »

AVES, Thomas

b.1862-d.1910 Introduction Thomas’ life is straightforward as far as we can tell. There is little in the evidence to suggest anything other than a normal family life, which ended too early and so sadly in 1910. Life would have been simple for the Aves family and Thomas was a labourer for his whole short adult… read more »


b. 1849 – d.1902 Caroline Blomquist [Karoline Kirstine Blomquist, formally Jensen, nee Sørensen] Caroline was Danish, and although she and her family has been found in the 1850, 1860 and 1870 Danish censuses, the translated transcriptions do not give much more than the basic information of name, age, place of birth, marital status, and address…. read more »

TENNANT, Herbert John

b.1858-d.1910 1850s Herbert was born at Saham Toney in Norfolk in January 1858. He was the sixth child of Edward and Mary Ann Tennant. His parents were married on 18th November 1842 at Beachamwell, near Ely. His father a carpenter, aged 23 at the time, and his mother Mary Ann Bellaman, aged 21, a milliner… read more »


b.1872 – d.1917 Intro Long Grove records say Henry died in 1917 age 44 meaning a birth year of about 1873. I found his birth registered in June quarter 1872 in Poplar Union, also those of two of his siblings – Esther in 1868, Francis Ebenezer in 1869 – all of them had mother’s maiden… read more »


b. 1855- d. 1909 A summary of the evidence for Arthur is very interesting but confusing in places. It has taken a lot of cross referencing of data to ensure that the profile is accurate. There is another Arthur Bannister in the records, about the same age. He enters and leaves the same workhouse.  He… read more »
