Note on Husband: Joseph DEAR - shared note

Joseph's address at the time of his marriage is given as 1 St John Street, co-incidentally now the route of the Great Eastern railway.

 

He is living at 107 Clifton Street, Shoreditch in the 1881 census with his new wife, and child from his first marriage.[RG11/0384/14/21]

Note on Wife: Emily ALEFOUNDER - shared note

This Emily appears as Joseph's wife in the 1881 census.

It would seem he is the same Joseph Dear who married Charlotte Alefounder - and Emily would have been too young to be the mother of Joseph J. listed as Joseph Snr.'s son in the 1881 census.

Presumably this is Charlotte's son, and she died (it is unlikely, I imagine at this period they would have divorced) sometime between his birth in 1867 and 1881.
