Calcutt of sussex
« on: Sunday 18 July 10 18:27 BST (UK) »
Trying to locate information  regading my Calcutt relatives -  Charles Herbert Calcutt and his wife Florence nee Burns,who I believe had  five  or six  children  -  Charles and Florence were married in 1895 I believe in London. Charles was born in 1869 in London and his wife Florence was born  in 1874 also in London.  Charles's profession is mixed he may have been a salesman and at one time he was a brewer. According to some old family letters the Calcutt family had lived in Lambeth in London and then later in Beckenham in Kent. They were last known living  in Sussex
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks - Luc.

Thanks Wozzle and Mort29
Wow thats a huge help - thank you very much

Interesting to see that the addresses that the family letters mentioned did not show up  - I suppose that meant times were hard and they moved accomodation  depending on their finances.

lostboys sent me the 1911 census details for Margaret Florence Calcutt ( aged 44 ) and daughters  - Florence Squire Callcutt (aged 17), Adelaide Maria Calcutt (aged 10), and Margaret Hilda (aged 7) and living in littlehampton in Sussex.  She is not given as a widow -so that leaves the question what happened to Charles and the other children  - Any suggestions ?

Thanks again for the amazing help - it is appreciated -Regads - Luc

What is the relevance of this family? It seems to be a different family from "your" Charles & Florence.  A free 1911 index search suggests the latter may have been in the West Ham area (consistent with their having been in Walthamstow in 1901).

Hi  avm228,

Thanks for your input you may be  right regarding the family - I think Lostboys  my  have gone by the fact that in my posting I mentioned  that "according to some old family letters the Calcutt family had lived in Lambeth in London and then later in Beckenham in Kent. They were last known living  in Sussex" And this 1911 census Lostboys sent me does mention some of these places. But re- checking these letters now they do not give any residential address -so these addresses  may have been a red heering !

A slightly confused - Luc

The family which was in Littlehampton in 1911 was in Beckenham in 1901 (head of household was a Charles).  So perhaps that is indeed your family and the Walthamstow family is a red herring?

Which child are you descended from? I think it's important to go back to the drawing-board and make absolutely sure you're tracing the right family.
