Note on Husband: Edward PETTIT - shared note

1. I have a copy of his birth certificate. He was born in North Street, Folkestone.


2. He was bound as an apprentice to Henry Juett of Poplar on June 13, 1876. He gained his freedom on completion of his apprenticeship on August 9, 1881.


3. I have a copy of his marriage certificate, at which time he lived in Blackman Street, Newington and his profession is Lighterman.


4. In the 1881 census he lived at 11 Goat Street, Bermondsey, with his profession shown as Lighterman. His son Henry was aged 5 months.


5. The birth certificate of his son Victor (1892) gives Edward's address as 65, Queen Elizabeth St, Horselydown, Southwark and his profession as Lighterman Journeyman.


6. In the 1901 census his family are living at 44 Lafone Street. He is a Lighterman, as ever. All the family are still living with him, from Henry aged 20, down to Walter, aged 1. (His father Henry is at the same address, although listed as a separate household.)


7. Died December 1, 1909 at Guy's Hospital London, recorded as an Accidental Death as a result of a fall from a barge on November 24, 1909. At the time of his death he lived at 133 Abbey Street, Bermondsey. I have a copy of his death certificate.


8. I checked the National Probate Index for 1909/10 - no entry found.

Note on Wife: Ann Elizabeth HARRIS - shared note

1. I have a copy of her birth certificate.


2. She came to Wolverhampton to live with her daughter Ivy in later life. When she died, she was taken back to London to be buried in the same grave as her mother and father in Nunhead cemetary. [Note. 'Uncle Frank' ie. her grandson Frank Davis would have been 11 at the time of her death and was present at the funeral. His memory was that she was buried in a 'Family Vault' which had been built to take 26, and that she was the 13th to go in. The reality turns out to be that there are only 5 in the grave and that it only has a standard headstone. Sorry - Frank ! ]
