Alice Wedgwood
« on: Wednesday 28 November 07 19:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I'm looking for any information on an Alice Wedgwood, all I know is she used the 24 Watergate Street, Chester in and around 1916, also in 1916 she went to London and had a baby girl called Phyllis. I have no idea what year or where Alice was born.

Any help would be appreciated

Many thanks

Chris

Birth registered as WEDGWOOD:

Local Record Office: www.cheshirebmd.org.uk: 1895 Chester Castle ref CAS/78/73
General Record Office: freebmd.org.uk: Mar 1895 Chester 8a 414

Looks like a second marriage for William judging by the age gap between the children...

In 1891, RG12 2861/34 Page 61, Wec? Building, Christleton Road, Chester:

William WEDGWOOD, Head, Mar, 44, Furniture Broker born Chester
Alice WEDGWOOD, Wife, Mar, 36 born Chester
Sarah A WEDGWOOD, Dau, S, 18, Home from Domestic Service born Salop Whitchurch
Elizabeth WEDGWOOD, Dau, S, 16, Home from Domestic Service born Salop Whitchurch
William WEDGWOOD, Son, 12, Asst to Father born Chester
James WEDGWOOD, Son, 4, Scholar born Chester
Charles WEDGWOOD, Son, 2 born Chester
Mary WEDGWOOD, Dau, 1 born Chester

At least that clears up the 1901 occupation, the missing word is Furniture!

No problem Barbara, all became clearer with the 1891!  :) although I think you may be right with Furnisher - maybe an early interior decorator!

Marriage from www.cheshirebmd.org.uk:

William WEDGWOOD m Alice ALLEN 1885 Chester ROC/20/11
