c1640Margaret (unknown) 
c1640Thomas RobertsLittle is known of Thomas, except that he lived in the Ruardean area of the Forest of Dean, and was married to someone called Elinor, probably from around 1663. In addition to the children shown in this database, they may have two additional children: Sarah (b. 1679) and Edith (b. 1671).

1750 Margaret MeekeMargaret was married three times. Her second marriage (in Gloucester) was to Richard Read whose residence was Ruardean, and she clearly lived there in the Ruardean/Walford area after that, as when her second husband died and was buried in Ruardean, she married for the third time to Henry Smart from Ruardean (her residence was given as Walford). She appears to have children (Margaret and Henry) by her third husband Henry Smart at the age or 42 and 44. She lived until she was 77, and was buried just North of Ruardean and Walford in Upton Bishop. A remarkable woman!

c1777Sarah LangfordSarah married relatively young (probably about 18) and had many children. She was widowed when she was about 60 and then lived (at least some of the time) with her son James and his family. She lived to the age of 87; a 'good innings' for a Georgian/Victorian lady!

1778 Henry TannerHenry and his wife seem to spend all their life in the Horsham area after marrying. Three of their children were christened in Rusper (about 5 miles from Horsham): 08/08/1813, 13/08/1815, and 23/08/1818, with their father's profession given as labourer (as Rusper was predominantly agricultural in the early 19th century, this would have been agricultural labouring). But the family does not appear in the detailed 1821 census of Rusper that has survived. Three of their other children were christened in Horsham: 05/02/1809, 10/02/1811, 09/12/1821, 15/04/1827 (a christening of a Henry Tanner c1809 has not yet been found). It seems likely that Henry worked as an agricultural labourer wherever there was work in the area. [The possible ascription of Henry Tanner (c1808–1830) to this family is tentative at the moment.]

c1780John Brough 
c1780Thomas BroughVery little is known about Thomas: we know he married a Mary Embleton in 1813 and had a son (William) shortly afterwards. He was reported to have been a miller at that time and when William was christened in Long Benton, Northumberland, the family's residence was given as "Redhouse"; this probably refers to Benton Park in the partish, which was often referred to in this way.

The childhood of WIlliam (Thomas's son) was reported by William to his son Joshua Jordan Brough to have been spent in the Longbenton/Killingworth area. So he must have been there until circa 1825 at least. Presumably, so was his father Thomas, but there are no records (burials, births) to confirm this known as yet.

c1780Sarah Fryer 
1780 James Hart 
1780 John HobbsJohn appears to have spent the first year or so of his life in the Bloxham/Milcombe area, then moving to Neithrop, and Banbury about 1800. He spent the rest of his life there as far as we know, although his whereabouts in the 1851 census are unknown.

John was married twice; he had at least 6 children by his first wife, and 12 by his second wife. One of his children (James) emigrated to the USA, and worked as a maltster. Joseph and George (sons from his second marriage) also became maltsters (in Aston/Birmingham) and John was himself a maltster as well as a labourer (the malting work may have been seasonal). Brewing was an important industry in 19th century Banbury. He lived to a great age for an early 19th century working-class man (over 80). Obviously an interesting man, reflecting what was happening in the Banbury area in the early 19th century.

1784 Thomas BroughIt would appear that Thomas spent his whole life in the parish of Seaham, marrying relatively late, anmd having two sons. He followed in his father's footsteps by being a farmer (and a miller at some time). He lived to be almost 100 years old (just 3 months short of 100, in fact).

In the grant of probate to his son John, Thomas is described as a miller, and John as a farmer, both of Seaham Mill.

c1784Fanny Cropp 
c1784Elizabeth Harland 
c1784Ann RedgraveWhat little we know about Ann/Anne is from her marriage, baptism of her children, and death at the age of 37 in 1822; all in Crick, Northamptonshire. We can deduce she was born about 1786 (and thus married at about 26). Ann and her infant son Samuel must have died within a few days, as she was buried 05/04/1822 and he was buried 10/04/1822.

c1784Benjamin Milburn Stafford 
1784 Thomas Taylor 
c1784Benjamin TomlinBenjamin seems to have spent most of his life in or near Crick : certainly c1812 to 1822 and c1841 to his death in 1866 (though no matching christening is known). He may have just been visiting family in London in the 1841 census, but maybe he lived there for some time during the period 1822 and 1851.

In both the 1851 and 1861 censuses, he is seen with an Ann Kilworth, though their relationship (other than presumed acquaintance/friendship) is not known.

1786 Richard WoolvenRichard was a soldier (see christening record for son William) who was a servant in later life. Presumably he met his wife whilst he was serving in Ireland in the 4th (Queen's Own) Dragoons (4th Dragoon Guard history), before he was injured and taken into Kilmainham Hospital (Recent pictures of Kilmainham), Dublin in 1817. She must have been quite young when they married (probably in Ireland, as there is no marriage record in Sussex). They seem to have lived separately some of the time (but nearby) in the last few years of their lives, including in 1841 when they were both in West Grinstead: Mary in the Catholic Chapel (she would have been a Roman Catholic of course) and Richard in the Anglican Rectory, showing how important such denominational distinctions were in those days.

Further details of Richard and Mary's life

c1787Ann (unknown) 
c1787Elizabeth (unknown)James Taylor's wife and mother of several children, born in Bewdley, and christened in Ribbesford, over the period 1814 to 1828. She appears to have moved to the Key Hill area of All Saints, Birmingham in the 1830s (possibly as late as 1840).

The earliest Elizabeth is likely to have been born is circa 1785 (from her last child, born 1828) and the latest 1798 (from her first child, born 1814), with her birth year c 1790 (if she had her first child at 24 in 1814). The ages given (64 and 74) given in the 1851 and 1861 censuses would make her year of birth most likely to be 1787.

c1796Mary EmbletonVery little is known about Mary, besides her marriage and the birth of her son William. The marriage was 'with consent of parents'; as Thomas was described as a Miller, it is likely he was over 21 and Mary was not. She would thus have been at least 12 and less than 21. As most aged 19 or 20 would probably conveniently forget their exact age, we might assume she was 16 to 18, making her year of birth about 1796, with absolute earliest and latest DOBs 19/10/1792 and 18/10/1801.

c1797Mary Ann (unknown)Mary was born in Ireland about 1797 or so, probably in Kildare Town (about 30 miles from Dublin) or Kildare County. She would have met her husband Richard during the period 1814 to 1817 when he was in that area (see 4th Dragoon Guard history). She would have then been 18 or 19 and he about 28. When he was injured, he was hospitalised, pensioned and returned to his place of birth (West Grinstead) with his new wife.

Mary was not shown as living with her husband Richard in any of the 1841, 1851, or 1861 censuses, when they were both alive. But they seem to have always lived close to each other.

It is possible that Mary met Richard after he was injured. The injury took place when he was serving near Limerick, which is nearly 100 miles from the town of Kildare. By contrast, the town of Kildare is only 30 miles from Kilmainham Hospital (where Richard was transferred after his injury, and subsequently returned to England from). Kildare is both a town and a county of course, and if she was born elsewhere in County Kildare, she may have been born as close as 10 miles from the hospital. So, whether she was born in County Kildare or the town of Kildare, she may have met him at the hospital. Alternatively, she met him before he was posted to Limerick — his previous service may have been nearer to Dublin and Kildare.

1797 Joshua JordanJoshua was born in London and stayed close to his birthplace for the rest of his life. After his first wife Sarah died, he lived with her sister Harriett and they had several children. Joshua and Harriett never married as it was forbidden in Canon (church) law for a man to marry his deceased wife's sister at the time (this prohibition was removed in 1907). [Harriett kept a family bible, but this did not mention her sister, presumably for this reason.]

After Harriett died, Joshua married again, to Martha Cropp. This time, the marriage was 'official', as his wife was unrelated to his two earlier partners. Martha and Joshua were the witnesses at the Marriage of Martha's sister Charlotte 7th September 1849 and it is possible that Martha and Charlotte became a couple soon after Harriet's death in 1846, as Joshua had young children to care for. For example, Mary Jordan was only 8 when her mother died; it is significant that Mary is found with Martha's sister and husband and their young child in the 1851 census. Maybe she was looking after her young step-cousin Clara.

1799 Sarah EaglesBorn (1799) and buried (1833) in Kingston-on-Thames. In her short life she married and lived in London, and had several children. She almost certainly died in childbirth or shortly after, with a burial of a Sarah Jorden (aged 33) in Kingston on Thames 17/11/1833 (where her abode was given as St George's, Hanover Square) following the birth of her daughter Harriett on 11/11/1833. This correlates well with her putative birth there in Dec 1799; no Jordans/Jordens are known in Kingston besides her. So she was buried where she was christened.

Although her age at death was given as 82 (making her year of birth 1800), it is more likely she was born about 1804 and baptised in March 1805, y looking at the baptisms of her siblings. This would mean she was probably only 20 when she was married in 1824; although she was not recorded as being married 'with consent of parents', it was quite common to say you wrre 21 to avoid this need for permissioin when you were only 20. If that is the case, she would have been about 78 when she died.

A probable death of Thomas was registered in Abingdon (the register office for Cumnor), Berks, April–June 1882, aged 77 (his true age would have been 75).

Jane almost certainly died in Finstock in 1882, aged 71. The death was registered in Chipping Norton (the district for Finstock), but the death certificate has not been checked.

1808 Thomas BroughThomas is a well-known engineer, and there is extensive correspondence in the National Archives about his appointment as a coal mining engineer in Nova Scotia, on the island of Cape Breton. He left England in June/July 1839. In NCB I/JB 1747, it is indicated that he left with 4 children, aged 7, 5, 4, and 3 months; the eldest 2 were also living with their parents in Gateshead in the 1851 census, but the younger are missing (presumably they died in Nova Scotia).

1811 Harriett EaglesHarriett was the sister of Sarah (Joshua Jordan's first wife). After Sarah died, Harriett and Joshua lived together and had several children. No record of an actual marriage ceremony between Joshua and Harriett has yet been found, and we do not know whether a marriage ceremony ever occurred. At the time, Canon law prohibited such a marriage, though it did sometimes occur (e.g. Matthew Boulton). From 1835, it was specifically illegal, and the law prohibiting it was not repealed until 1907. So perhaps we can assume they never married.

Like Sarah, Harriett died young, shortly after giving birth. In the case of Harriet, she gave birth to Ellen Jordan in June 1846. Ellen was buried 16/07/1846, aged 5 weeks, and Harriet was buried ten days later.

c1814George Thomas BroughNamed after his two twin brothers (born 1809) who had both died young.
1814 William BroughWilliam was born in the Long Benton (now Longbenton) area north of Newcastle. He later reported (to his son) that he spent his early years in the Long Benton/Killingworth area. In adult life (as can be seen from his marriage, census returns and places of birth/deaths of his children) he moved around England, notably taking a job (in the late 1840s) with the Great North Railway, and eventually settling in West London: first working as a grocer and then opening up a laundry. Much of what we know of his later life comes from what he told his son JJ Brough in the 1880s and recounted by JJ to his son in the late 1940s. For example, in a 1948 letter (exact transcription):

He was a voracious reader and studied Theology.

He married young and referred used to call us his "bakers dozen". I infer that he had 13 children, 12 by his first wife But I can only account for 8 believing the other 4 to die young as it was a matter of course to breed rapidly in those times knowing 1 in 3 would die. We have altered all that.

In all probability it was through necessity of needing more money that caused him in middle age to leave the GNR and start a Laundry in Latimer Road, Shepherds Bush. I sincerely hope that washing linen brought in more money than engine driving but from what I know of the business I am inclined to doubt it.

By 1889 he was seemingly suffering a type of dementure, losing his mind and his way home. Inevitably the laundry business failed and Aunt Sarah bailed him out to the tune of £50. But it was clear things couldn't go on indefinately and so we mortgaged Stanly House in 1893. A year or so afterwards William took to his bed and died 5/1/1898 of abdominal obstruction the same problem that affected Aunt Elizabeth in 1894.

Probate for his estate to the value of £225 10s was granted to his wife Mary (née Jordan).

GNR ran the line to York (wikipedia entry for GNR) and also operated over NER lines, northward to Scotland (wikipedia entry for the NER). He also seems to have run a shop for a short time in London, before opening the laundry (see census); something not mentioned by his son JJ Brough. It seems he was (like many from the Newcastle area) an engineer. We do not know how or where he met his first wife, but we do know that in 1839 the couple were in Paddington (London) and in 1841 they were in Lane End, Longton, Staffs, where William worked as an engineer in a pottery company. In 1843, he was in Morpeth, Northumberland, working as an engineman.

The family's location in 1841 is confirmed by the birth registration of his daughter Mary Ann Brough (1841-2), whose mother's name is given as Tomalin, and place of birth as Longton. So (like his great grandson Michael) he worked at least for some time in the pottery industry in Longton!

c1816Elizabeth TomalinAfter Elizabeth married William Brough and they had a number of children (possibly 12, of whom 8 are known at present). They married near her birth-place of Crick in Northants, but lived at several locations, before they ended up in London, where Elizabeth died in 1872.

The census record for 1841 is puzzling. It is hard to see how William and Elizabeth were in the Potteries. But it surely must be them as their daughter (born in Longton) has a birth certificate showing a mother's maiden name of Tomalin Their first child was born in Paddington (london) and their third is believed to have been baptised in Northumberland, near where Willaim was born.

c1822Charles Frederick BruntonFrederick (as he was probably referred to) was born in Lewes, and was a printer in adult life. He married in 1844, but was absent from home in the 1851 census. He may have been working away from home, or he may have left his wife (who said she was married, although he was not present). He seems to have been living with someone else in Chester as a common-law wife in 1861. His whereabouts from October 1850 (when he was in Southover, Lewes, as evidenced by the christening of his daughter Eliza) to 1861 and subsequently are unknown.

Although he was not lodging with the family in 1871, he seems to have lived/lodged with her from 1881 to his death in 1906 at the age of 77.

In later years, he worked as a coal miner in the Cannock/Walsall area of Staffordshire, marrying Eliza Hobbs, who had moved to that area from Banbury, Oxfordshire.
c1828Hannah Meyrick 
1828 Fanny (Frances) TaylorFanny originated in Bewdley, Worcestershire and moved with the rest her family to Aston (Birmingham) some time in the 1830s. After she got married, she stayed in the area for the rest of her life.

At the time of her marriage (October 1855) she gave her age as 27, implying a birth between Oct 1827 and Oct 1828. Her baptism 25th April 1828 implies a birth that is probably after August 1827 (and before April 1828!). At her death, her age is recorded as 59, implying a birth between Sep 1826 and Sep 1827. Although some census ages have small discrepancies, we thus conclude she was born in 1827 or early 1828. She consistently gave her place of birth as Bewdley, which was the main settlement in the parish of Ribbesford (and thus where we would expect her baptism).

Fanny gave her residence as Highgate, Birmingham in her wedding certificate (1855). She was previously living in Frederick St, Birmingham (in service) in 1851. Highgate is just over a mile from Frederick St.

Emma had 7 children and many (at least 31, maybe as many as 50) grandchildren who would have been alive at the time of her death.

At the age of 7, he went to Nova Scotia, when his father was appointed as a mining engineer consultant. He returned to England with his father and family some time before 1851 and followed his father's engineering profession. He seems to have been successful at it, ending up in Devon, where he retired on independent means with his wife Caroline (whom he was married to for over 60 years). After Caroline died, he appears to have lived with the one son (William Edward) that outlived them.

1838 Catharine TekellCatherine spent all her life in the village of Chalford, and appears to have had two (possibly three) children before she married Henry Smart.
c1839Hannah Maria BridgmanHannah seems well-defined, including two marriages and two children. Notable in that her first husband William 'disappears' and she marries again (possibly bigamously, as we have no record of William's death and, indeed, he may himself have also have married again). This type of 'informal divorce' did occur in the nineteenth century, as divorce was not an option (except, rarely, through act of parliament; thus only an option for few).

Her husband Jesse had spent some of his early years in Winterslow (he was there in the 1841 census), which is where Isabella's mother Harriet came from. Maybe Isabella and Jesse were very distantly related.

1841 Sarah Ann BusbySarah Ann had a long and interesting life. Born May 1841 and probably met William Alder in Stanton Harcourt when she was in service there. She married him in 1873, after his wife died. They went to Clitheroe (Lancashire) to work in the cotton industry, and some of Sarah's family also went with them, including Phyllis Busby, who was almost certainly Sarah Anne's illegitimate daughter. This is a typical mid 19th century move from the Oxfordshire countryside to an urban employment.
c1841William BusbyWilliam Busby is James's father. In the only two census records we have for him (1891, 1901) he gave his place of birth as the Irish Sea circa 1841. But his whereabouts from 1841 to 1888 are a mystery. He may be the same William as one from Oxfordshire (but then, what was he doing in the Irish Sea?); see notes below.

His wife Harriett indicated (in 1911) census that he was deceased and that she had been married for 22 years; that would make his death late 1910 or early 1911.

Possible death recorded in Kings Norton in October-December 1905 (6c, p 207). Under investigation.

c1842Septimus C FleetwoodBorn in England, he emigrated to the USA in 1870 (travelling steerage, arriving New York 23/08/1870), and married Rebecca Barcham (née Brough) whom he had met on the voyage and was (reportedly) widowed about the time of her emigration. He was naturalised in 1884, and died in New Haven Connecticut.

He rose to prominence in the New Haven Railroad Company, as described in the New York Times:

SEPTIMUS C FLEETWOOD
———
Dies at 85 After 58 years With the
New Haven Railroad.
Special to The New York Times.

 NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 13. —
The death of Septimus C. Fleetwood, at his home in West Haven today, removed a unique railroad figure. Mr. Fleetwood, who was 85 years old, had been for fifty-eight years in the accounting department of the New Haven Railroad system, was Treasurer of the steamship department of the railroad, and was an authority on railroad conditions existing when he entered the service of the line in 1870. The New York terminus was then on the site of the Old Madison Square Garden. Mr Fleetwood moved to the Grand Central station in 1872 and to New Haven Oct. 1, 1887.

His knowledge of early railroading was constantly drawn upon by department heads for reference purposes.

The funeral services will be held tomorrow at 1 o'clock. Burial will be at Evergreen Cemetary.

1843 Augustine BusbyA rural agricultural labourer, following in his father's footsteps. However, like so many rural Oxford workers, he ended up moving away from Oxfordshire. Whether he moved and then met his wife, or met her and then moved to marry her is unclear. It is also unclear whether any of his wife's pre-existing children were, in fact his.

Augustine seems to have commonly used the name George in christening of his children and marriage. Maybe he thought Augustine was not 'religious'. He chose to use Augustine in dealings with the state and for several of his childrens' names.

c1843Alfred GilesIt seems likely that Alfred had several brushes with the law in Leighton Buzzard and area (not confirmed, as only name has been recorded for the offences). His marriage seems to have only led to a short cohabitation with is wife. Whether poverty fuelled criminality or vice-versa is not clear.
1843 George Hobbs 
1843 Susannah HoldenMarried and widowed young, her second marriage lasted at least 42 years (she was still with Henry in 1911). She clearly had many children, but it is perhaps unlikely that all the children shown as her children in some censuses are hers; at least some were probably grandchildren.

1845 Mercy SymondsMercy was married three times. She had 3 children with her first husband William, who died suddenly, leaving her penniless. She had to go back into service (she had been in service before she was married), leaving her three young children with her sister in Brighton (though her youngest at least later spent some time with her). Her two later marriages were to men she had been a housekeeper for; neither marriage lasted long. Her second husband died soon after the marriage, and she formally separated from her third husband only a year after they married.

c1848Mary Catharine BrownMary married a (probably) mariner George Higgs, after his first wife died. He too died, after they had been married less than 3 years. Nevertheless, she brought up his daughters as her own, and the youngest was still living with her (aged 30) in 1911. It is interesting to note that although her step-daughter was a teacher, Mary completed the 1911 census return herself — clearly and without error; she must have been well-educated.

Mary lived at 22 Cleveland Rd from before the 1901 census up to her death (place of death given in probate records).

He was quite successful, judging by the probate estimate (less than £3000) on his estate. But as Elizabeth's family seem to have been relatively well-off, this may have been partly inherited.

1852 Mary Elizabeth HepburnMary's marriage is well-documented, and she had three children shortly afterwards. She probably died in childbirth or shortly afterwards, with her third child. Her husband may have been a sailor (he was certainly absent for the 1881 census).

c1856Harry Hobbs 
c1856Caroline Emily JonesThe daughter of a wheelwright (Allen Jones) from rural Cheltenham. The family came to the West Bromwich area (then referred to as Handsworth in the census) sometime in the 1870s. When married, she lived mostly within a short distance of Victoria Park, Smethwick.

The 1911 census indicates Caroline had 9 children born alive and one of those had subsequently died).

c1856Ellen KellithorneWidowed after only 5 years of marriage, Ellen moved from London to Brighton as a domestic cook, boarding her two young children in nearby Hove. By 1911, the family was back together, in a significant dwelling. She truly did well to overcome adversity.

Note that she is another of the 'Fry clan' who moved from London to Brighton. This was, of course, not unusual in the late 1800s.

JJ Brough (husband of William's daughter Florence) reported in 1948 that in conversations with Harry Simmonds, he gathered William had been drinking heavily in Eastbourne, although he had previously been abstemious.

1859 Harriet Elizabeth HobbsUnlike her husband William, Harriett's life is well-documented. She had five children who lived to majority, and one (name as yet unknown) who died as an infant. We have a portrait of Harriett and her husband William. Although Harriett spent all her life in Aston (Birmingham) or Smethwick, both her parents came from a rural background: her father George from Banbury and her mother Frances (Fanny) from Bewdley.

After her husband died, Harriett owned property (notably 73 Moilliett St), where she may have run a shop. As an owner of property, she was on the electoral roll.

In the 1911 census, she stated that she had had 8 children, of whom 6 were still alive, and 2 had died (the two who had died were her twins, born November 1901).

Her death certificate states that five children were still alive:

  1. Arthur Edward, aged 36
  2. Francis Charles, aged 34
  3. Leonard Alfred, aged 25
  4. Phyllis Edna, aged 23

1 female deceased, 2 males deceased

In 1912, Fanny and her family (husband Arthur and all 6 children) emigrated to Australia. She was pre-deceased by her daughter Alice, but her other 5 children outlived her.

This is consistent with his presence with his grandparents in Lewes in the 1871 census. So this seems to be certain. He was her illegitimate son.

On the face it, Harry was thus born in late 1862 or early 1863, in Eastbourne, where Ruth had been with her parents in the 1861 census. She may by then have been in service in Brighton. Certainly, there is a birth of a Henry Simmonds registered in Brighton in 1862. So she might have conceived the child in either Eastbourne of Brighton, and given birth at her parents house (common practice in those days), and then registered the birth in Brighton. We do not have the birth certificate to hand as yet to confirm this.

All the above seems plausible. Indeed, quite normal for mid 19th century illegitimate births. Except that Ruth was quite clearly only born in 1848, so she was only 22 or 23 by the time of the 1871 census — yet Harry was reported by his grandparents to be 8 at that time. Which would make Ruth only 14 or 15 when she gave birth! Possible, but very, very unusual. [Note that girls/women could marry once they were 12 until the 1920s in England. But births at such a young age were quite exceptional, and the mean age at which girls would have been able to conceive in 19th century England was probably about 16 (as opposed to the 12 to 13 of 2000).]

Given this discussion, the birth of Harry in 1862/3 must be considered putative as yet, until a birth certificate can be obtained.

1872 Edith Elizabeth RockleyEdith's life was very much tied around the military. She was mostly brought up in Greenwich (specifically Plumstead perhaps; maybe Robert Street) near Woolwich where her faher was probably based; she may have been born in Kensington, where the family was around 1872–3. [The family's movements in London may be discovered by looking at her siblings records.]

Her family moved to the Aldershot/Farnborough area in the late 1870s, where her father probably died. After leaving the orphanage where their mother worked, she went into service in the same road. In 1892, she married another serviceman (who she probably met when he was working at Aldershot, maybe lodging nearby). She returned to her husband Samuel's birthplce area (South Staffordshire) in the mid 1890s and they had a many children.

1883 Alice Kate HardwidgeBorn and brought up in Birmingham, she appears to have remained true to her roots, as she is recorded as having returned from the USA on 25/08/1949. She gave her address as 89 Walls Green Rd, Sheldon, B'ham. 26. She said she was a housewife, so was presumably still married (just a guess, perhaps) and her age at that time of 66 is consistent with her year of birth, as she was born Jan/Fen/Mar 1883 (i.e. she would have been 66 earlier in 1949.

Kate almost certainly died in Apr/Mar/Jun 1964, when she would have been 81 — the age reported at the death of a Alice K Reddall in Birmingham.

As well as looking after her sister's children, Amy also looked after her own children of course. All this in a couple of rooms, with no running water; water was obtained from a tap in the yard (which included a horse stable), as reported by E. Busby. After he came home from work (unloading coal from barges), her husband John ('Jack') walked the children home to Greenfield Rd.

When Agnes and James were first married they lived at 73 Moilliett Street (then in Smethwick, now Birmingham, B18). The owner of that dwelling (and thus on the electoral roll) was his mother Harriett Elizabeth Busby (seen as Harriett or Elizabeth Busby in several electoral rolls). This property may have been a shop.

1891 Herbert SmartKnown as a professional footballer (first with Bilston, then with Aston Villa), he is likely to have been one of the first (if not the first) UK professional footballer to sign up in World War I. His letter describing the Christmas Truce of 1914 was widely published (believed to have been first published 4th January 1915).

Whether he would have ever had a good football career is debatable. He seems to have only played once in the 1914 season, and 3 times in the 1919 season (scoring once). He seems to have played inside left for the Villa, and then centre forward for Leicester after being transferred (the Aston Villa web site suggests he went to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but Leicester seems more likely). In the War, the League was suspended 1915 to 1919, but he guested for at least Leicester and the Carriage Works (which of the several carriage works near Smethwick is not yet known). Under investigation.

We do not yet know whether he married or his date and place of death. The Aston Villa web site suggests his date of birth was 24/04/1892, his full name was Herbert Horace Smart, and he died in 1951.

c1894Edward BarrettEdward was living in Price St, Smethwick in 1911 (when he was 16 or 17) and his future wife Phillis was living in the nearby Exeter Rd (she was 19). They must have met around that time. He and his wife were resident at 73 Moilliett St in 1918 (as were Agnes and James Busby). This building was owned by Harriet Elizabeth Busby (who was thus on the electoral role as a property owner) and may have been run as a shop.

1894 Agnes SmartAgnes was born in Handsworth (on the border with Smethwick), but lived most of her life in Smethwick (except for the period 1916 to 1923, when she lived in Moilliett St, as did her sister-in-law Phillis). After her husband James died in 1925, she brought up her 3 children on her own (although her sister Amy and brother-in-law Jack helped by looking after the children whilst Agnes was at work). From 1923, she lived in the same house until the end of her life (from 1945) with her daughter Evelyn and son-in-law Frank) and their children.

Agnes's early working career was at Baxters, the Parade, Birmingham (national phone central 2036): a company that stocked and sold nuts, bolts and screws. It is clear that Baxters was a family company, supportive of its employees. There was an annual outing to the Baxters' home in Worcestershire. It also participated in the Girls Friendly Society scheme, and Agnes was in this scheme for 3 years until she got married (the GFS was only for single women at that time).

Agnes ran a 'treble twenties' club (for those over 60) at St Marks church and was a local community warden for Greenfield Rd, into her 80s. In connection with this, she was interviewed by ABC television (it is believed the programme was broadcast on 17th October 1965).

After she retired (from the MEB) at the age of 65, Agnes visited Canada to see her sister Carrie (Caroline) and nephew (Joe Bradbury). She died in Dudley Road Hospital on the 5th January 1986.

Joseph may have been born in Oldbury, although the birth was registered in West Bromwich, a mile or so away. See birth certificate to clarify this. It seems clear that he was brought up in his family in Hobicus Lane, however. When his brother Samuel H Smart was married in 1935, he gave his residence as 13 Hobicus Lane, the same address as Joseph and his parents were at in the 1911 census (information from his page on the Whittingham web site).
