History of 6 Eden Street


Nathan Benson, married, 60, miller, b Linton

Ann, 22, dressmaker, b Waterbeach

Mary, 20, straw bonnet maker, b Waterbeach

Other information about this family on Ancestry suggests that there was a mother Ann Wedd who died in July 1853 in Cambridge and other daughters. This is confirmed in the 1841 census where Nathan Benson, 75, miller also has in his household in Waterbeach, Nathan, 48, Ann, 44 [probably daughter in law], Eliza [probably daughter], Ann, 12, Mary, 11, Hannah, 10, Sarah, 6, Esther, 3 and Martha,1 [in all six granddaughters]. In 1851 Hannah is a servant in Cambridge, Sarah a servant in Soham, Esther in Cambridge, Martha in Cambridge as well.
