William and Edith HARDING
« on: Wednesday 06 December 17 16:55 GMT (UK) »
The last record I have of William and Edith HARDING is the 1911 census. William is aged 53 and described as a cowman on a farm, born Salperton, Glos. Edith, his wife, is aged 62, born Siddington, Glos. They are living with Reggie Fred BRAIN, aged 6, descreibed as their grandson, a scholar, born Tuffley, Glos.

William Harding was born in 1857 at Northleach [Q4 1857 Northleach 6a 303]. His father was Daniel HARDING, a labourer. His mother was Caroline HARDING, née Humphries.

Edith HARDING (née JEWELL) was born in1846 at Siddington (Q4 1846 Cirencester 11 249). Her father was John JEWELL, a labourer. Her mother was Caroline JEWELL, née Allen. The Jewell surname is often spelt JOEL.

The couple married in Dec 1877 in Cheltenham.

There is a possible death for Edith in April 1922 in Withington, Burghill, Herefordshire. She was aged 75 and is described as the wife of William HARDING, a stationary engine driver at a tile works. In 1911 he was a cowman, in 1901 a farm bailiff and in 1891 an agricultural labourer. The informant was Eleanor Lily Crooks, a daughter living in Withington. This could be the Eleanor L HARDING (daughter), aged 12, in the 1901 census.

As for William there are several possible deaths in Herefordshire: Mar 1928 Hereford 6a 681, Dec 1939 Hereford 6a 1326 and Sep 1922 Hereford 6a 432.

I would really like to find out for sure what happened to the couple after the 1911 census. Any help would be much appreciated.

Well that is very decisive, clearly the death in April 1922 in Withington, Burghill, Herefordshire is correct for Edith.

William and Edith obviously moved from Gloucestershire to Hereford. So presumably William also died in Hereford. Does anyone have any insights as to which of the possible deaths for William is the right one? Does anyone have access to burial records for Hereford?

Hi from what I can see, the William Harding death 1939 seems to be a good purchase, as has possibly BROWN relatives with him in 1939?

Thanks. I will have a look at it.

PS Having had a quick look at 1939 Register it looks very promising.
