In 1851 Susan, 29, was a servant working in Cavendish House, a large drapery shop owned by William DEBENHAM, of later department store fame, and under the management of Clement FREEBODY who had married Debenham's sister. The shop was described as ‘silk mercers, linen drapers, hosiers, lacemen, milliners, dress makers, upholsterers, carpet wharehouseman, bedding manufacturers.’ The building also housed 26 drapers and silkweavers from all other the country. She shared her duties with one other maid and four male servants.

Between 1861 and 1871 she was living in Tetbury with her husband, who was working as a plasterer, and her two boys, Isaac and Thomas.

5 - Email from Angela Cross

I am descended from Charles Browning born 1819. His parents I believe were Isaac and Mary. He was christened in 1823 - think it must have been a job lot with his sister Ann. The older Anne presumably died young.

My Charles married Eliza Coates in Bristol in 1842. They had 5 children including my greatgrandmother Rosa, born 1848. In the 1851 census she is living with her uncle

John in Tetbury. Her father died in 1853 and her mother remarried.

Mary Lock's last son Isaac was born in 1833 and died in 1857. Mary lived on until 1870 outliving most of her children.

Rosa married William Henry Rees and a number of their descendants moved up to Lancashire where I was born.

Best wishes, Angela Cross
