    Residence 30 Mar 1851  Upper Houe(?) Street, Maidstone, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location

    Grocer 
    • The entry on the 1861 census shows "Firm of Prior and Dartnell", employing 3 men. (thanks to his descendant Sue Miles for this - I had trouble reading the entry)
    Residence From 7 Apr 1861 to 2 Apr 1871  Newington Street, Newington next Sittingbourne, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • In the 10 years since the 1851 census Alfred and Rebecca had at least another 6 children*, so the household now consisted of the couple, 8 children and a 16 year old house servant

      By 1871 only 3 of the children shown in the previous census remained with their parents (Charles and Frank), 1 at least appearing to have died (Harry - his name had been reused) and in addition Alfred and Rebecca had another 4 with them (and could have had more*).
      Rebecca's mother was also living with them too, as well as a 17 year old house servant.

      * the gap between Rebecca and Charles suggests they may have lost one here, and since the oldest of the additional chidlren in1871 was 6 again there they could have lost 1 or 2 here
    Emigrated 1881  Ohio, USA See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • All but one of Alfred's surviving children went with him to the US.
    Residence 3 Apr 1881  16, Grecain Street, Maidstone, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • The family were back in Maidstone at the time of the 1881 census, and Alfred was unemployed - probably explaining why for the first time they had no house servant with them although as they now only had 4 children (Harry, Jessie, Tom and Fred)  at home of whom the youngest was 7 the need must have reduced too.
      Yes, they had had 2 more children since the last census - must be the last since Rebecca was now aged 52.

      Since they emigrated soon after this Alfred may have given up work in preparation - or they may have emigrated because he was unemployed.
    Died 1907  Ohio, USA See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location
