6 Marshall Road

History of 6 Marshall Road


(it seems likely by a process of elimination that this is the same building as that described in the 1901 census as no.3 Marshall Road)

Walter Pepper, 25, foreman at jam factory, born Melbourne

Susan, 33, born Herts

Alfred, son, 1, born Cherry Hinton


Alfred Cowell, 37, college servant, born Babraham

Elizabeth, 38, born Fulbourn

Alfred Joseph, 12, born Cherryhinton

Ronald Josiah, 7, born Cherryhinton

In 1901 Alfred and his family were living in a property on Cherry Hinton Road, probably between Edenberg and the Rock Hotel that seems to have gone by 1911.

Bernard Victor Walpole, born 1895, was a domestic cook and son of Frederick, a railway clerk. He enlisted 18/6/1915 into the 2nd army, was made a private in the Suffolk Regiment and later moved to the Labour Corps.
