Note on Husband: William Henry KNOWLES - shared note

Died young.

Living at 117 Brewery Road Plumstead at the time of his marriage.

Note on Wife: Elizabeth HOADLY - shared note

In 1871, Elizabeth is living at 16 Park Street, Leamington Priors, Warwickshire, with her mother.

[RG10/3195/1/10]

 

In 1881 Elizabeth and her mother and sister Katherine were living in Shakespeare Road, Herne Hill.

[RG11/0622/48/25]

 

In 1891 she was living at 10 Pulross Road, Brixton, with her mother, Elizabeth.

[RG12/409/13/136].

 

Living at 136 Plumstead Road at the time of her marriage.

Her marriage witnessed by Margaret Hamilton [her step-niece], and her brother, Frederick.

 

Probably moved from Noyna Road Tooting after the death of her husband, to 76 High Street Peckham around 1904, when her daughter started at Woods Road School.

 

She managed a "satellite" baker's shop for her brother, Frederick at 76 High Street. This building was still as it was in the early 1990s but was considerably rebuilt and modified at the end of the 1990s.

Photos in possession of Graham Hoadly.

It seems likely that Lizzie looked after her mother at 76 also.

Described by Nelly Jaques as "A nice little woman, who had two children"

And by Edie Dale as "a dumpy woman."
