Note on Husband: George BAKER - shared note

1. I have a copy if his birth certificate 4/3/1849 in Epsom. Note that his mother is clearly recorded as Frances Baker, formerly Agate.


2. The 1881 census shows him living at 43 Wood Street, Brighton with his wife and 5 children. His profession is Paperhanger. (NB. In the CD version of the census the family surname is given as 'Bruce'. All the children have middle initials, and Clarissa appears as Caroline.

ie. The children, in order, are given as Rebeca A, Louisa H, Emma E, Caroline R and Reuben J.)


3. The other three children, Alice, Joe and Kit, have been drawn into a family tree by Mum. I haven't a clue where she got them from.


4. In 1883 he was still at 43 Wood Street, where Margaret was born. Her bith certificate gives his profession as Paperhanger Journeyman.

He was still a paperhanger at the time of his daughter Margaret's marriage in 1912.


5. I have a copy of his marriage certificate for his marriage to Rebecca Sparshott in 1869. At the time of his marriage they lived at 51 Elm Gore, Brighton and his profession is still that of Paperhanger.


6. Note the record of his birth in the on-line IGI Film No. 6142791. This gives his mother as Mrs Alice Frances Baker. See the notes on Frances Agate for the full works on this one.


7. In the 1901 census he is living at 20 Gladstone Place with his second wife Eliza and four children - Joseph and Kate from his first marriage, plus George and Frances from his second marriage. This doesn't match up very well with the list of children which Mum left.

He is a self-employed paper hanger.


8. I have checked the National Probate Index for 1930/31 - no entry found.

Note on Wife: Eliza Emma MILES - shared note

1. She was known to David Azzaro as 'Grandmother Baker'. Maiden name was Miles; Christian name unknown.


2. There is a marriage record in the PRO Index of George Baker to Eliza Emma Miles in 2nd Qtr 1895 in Brighton (PRO Ref. Vol 2b, p.486). I am assuming that this is the one. The name Eliza is confirmed by the 1901 census.


3. Mum recorded the names of 3 children of the George's second marriage - George, Dorothy and Ann. George is confirmed by the 1901 census, but this also shows a daughter Frances. Dorothy and Ann do not appear in 1901.
