Note on Husband: Joseph WALLACE - shared note

1. At the time of the birth of his son Charles, he was living at 25 Whitechapel Road. Joseph's profession at the time is Tailor.


2. The LDS site lists the marriage of a Joseph Wallace to Mary Reynolds at Saint Dunstans, Stepney in 1821. Taken together with his wife's name of Mary in the 1841 census, this seems to have a fair chance of being the right record.


3. In the 1841 census the family appear to be at Tongue Yard, Whitechapel Road, Whitechapel, Middlesex. The family consists of Joseph Wallace (Age 40 - clothier), Mary (40), Mary (15 - clothier), Martha (15 - clothier), Frederick (4) and Charles (1). All born within the same county.


4. In the 1851 census the family appear to be living at 58 Church Street, Chelsea as follows:

Joseph Wallace, M age 50, Tailor, born London, Middlesex. Head of household

Maria Wallace, F age 20, Dressmaker, born Stepney, Middlesex. Daughter unmarried

Esther Wallace, F age 15, Laundress, born Stepney, Middlesex. Daughter

Frederick Wallace, M age 14, born Stepney, Middlesex. Son

Charles Wallace, M age 11, born London, Middlesex. Son

Alfred Wallace, M age 9, born Whitechapel, Middlesex. Son


5. In the 1861 census he may be living at 7 Little Europa Place, Battersey, Surrey. The household consists of :

Joseph Wallace, M age 60, Firewood cutter, born Whitechapel, Middlesex. Head of household. Widower

Jane Penfold, F age 50. Housekeeper, born Spild Green, Sussex. Unmarried


6. In the 1871 census he is living alone at 11 Georges Place, Fulham. He is aged 70 and described as a Tailor's Cutter.


7. Mum has found a possible record of a Joseph Wallace, picture frame maker, aged 80, in Battersea in the 1881 census. He was born in Whitechapel and is married to Eliza Wallace. This is the only grounds for listing a second marriage to Eliza, but it is supported to a degree by the absence of his first wife in the 1851 and 1861 censuses.


8. This 1881 census record above lists him at 24 Little Europa Place where he is living with Charles Wallace, aged 43, who has two children Minnie (10) and Charles (8). He (ie. Charles aged 43) was born at Stepney, in Middlesex. It would be better if he were 2 years younger, but I suppose it isn't a bad match really.


9. At the time of the marriage of his son Alfred, his profession was clothier. That of picture frame maker in 1881 matches that of Alfred. Might he have taken over his son's business after his death ? Or otherwise become involved in it earlier ?


10. In the Kensington and Chelsea Poor Law records he appears to have been admitted to the Workhouse in 1887. He is aged 87 and a Picture Frame Maker.


11. There is an entry for his death in the BMD Index for 1st Qtr 1891 in the Registration District of Chelsea.


12. Three more children (Mary, Martha and Esther) have been copied from the Ancestry family tree "Fassell/Harris Family Tree owned by JemfHarris. This tree has also supplied most of the dates of death.

1. In the 1851 census she appears to be living alone, aged 50, married, a needlewoman, b. Tower, Middlesex.
