Robert Crooks:Where was he & when did he die?
« on: Friday 18 January 19 23:00 GMT (UK) »
Robert Crooks was born Jan 1828, the son of Robert Crooks and Lucy Minton probably in the city of London. In 1841 he is with his parents. In 1847 he marries Amelia Sarah Lay also known as Pledger.
1851 he is with Amelia in Camberwell
1861 he is with Amelia in Devon
 1901 he is with wife Edith in Lambeth, and at the same address in 1911. There is a marriage in 1899 to a Edith Sophia Wharton.
His occupation is Engineer. I can't find a death for him, nor for his 2 wives. He seems to spend most of his life in London, but there is that trip to Devon.

Thank you KGarrad.
I somehow missed the deaths for Robert and Edith, and the one for Amelia I had discounted because there was an Amelia Crooks living in Lambeth who  was unmarried,however I think there is at least a connection. I looked further Amelia, was living At 1 Walnut Tree Walk in 1891 and Robert was there in 1901 &1911.
I think these must have been flats as some of the same people lived at 1 Walnut Tree Walk, during those years.
