Rootham Samuel Blinkhorn, clerk

In 2022 ML sent this note about Rootham Blinkhorn:

I have been researching the Levett family history on Ancestry for a number of years and have found out quite a lot about Rootham, who seemed to have been lodging in a number of houses before marrying Elizabeth late in life in 1882, eventually living at 14 Church Street Cambridge (but seems to have lodged there with Elizabeth when the property was owned by his niece Florence Levett Ingrey). A relative of mine remembered  in the 1980s that Rootham had an ear trumpet and I think both he and Elizabeth attended Eden Baptist Church in Cambridge.
