A Norfolk Servant in 1901 Kensington...
« on: Wednesday 07 July 21 09:04 BST (UK) »
IMPORTANT: the person I am principally researching was involved in a very nasty tragedy, and I am researching the wider context for a descendant. Please don't mention the name of Harriet's daughter in the thread where google will index it. Thank you.

=========================================================

I am trying to find the post-1901 story of Harriet Louisa Hall, b1880 in Felmingham, Norfolk.

She is the daughter of Benjamin Hall (1855-1918) and Sarah Ann Lyons (1850-1937).


START EDIT; FreeReg has given me her birth date in a Baptism record;

3 Mar 1880.

END EDIT

I have found her 1881, 1891 and 1901 census entries;

1881: Living with her parents and siblings in Felmingham, Norfolk (RG11/1921/45 p 5 )

1891: Living with her parents and siblings in Briston, Norfolk (13 miles from Felmingham); (RG12/1512/60 P 9).

Benjamin Hall was a railway worker; his residences appear to follow the M&GN railway line rather neatly.

1901;Earls court rd, Kensington, household of William H Billinghouse, Warehouseman. She is a domestic servant. (RG13/31/97 p31).

Her daughter (who, as per my intro, I will not name) was born in Kensington, 1901

GRO index reference:
   -     
GRO Reference: 1901  J Quarter in KENSINGTON  Volume 01A  Page 147

The  daughter appears nicely in the 1911 census, living with her grandparents and other relations in Melton Constable.

But I have looked *hard* in the 1911 census and 1939 register for Harriet Louisa, and I have checked BMD records for her potentially marrying or dying, and I cannot find her.

All and any help greatly appreciated.

With Bermondsey being withing the St Olave district, those two records gel together nicely.

I guess I'm going to have to hammer on the 1911 census.

I mean, she must be in there somewhere, right?

It appears to have escaped Ancestry's indexing, but the admission image is no 152, and the discharge page at image 157, for 17 Dec 1929 has the death of Harriet Hall, age 48.

Not necessarily, the suffragettes encouraged women to boycott  the 1911 census in protest of the governments reluctance to give women the vote. Maybe Harriet was one of them.
