44 Kingston Street

A Cabinet Maker & a Bricklayer


John and Emma Hunt live here in 1881. John is 31 and a cabinet maker, he was born in Aldsworth, Berkshire.  Emma is 29 and born in Cambridge.


In 1891, 44 Kingston Street has no census entry, meaning either nobody was living there, or that the occupiers were not at home on census day.


In 44 Kingston Street is the house of the Banyard family. Charles Banyard is a 35 year old bricklayer from Cherry Hinton; his wife Amelia is 32 and hails from Ely. They live with their daughter Mabel Banyard, aged 13, Sidney, aged 9, and Stanley Banyard, who is 4.


By 1891, little has changed, though Sidney has now left home and Mabel is working as a draper’s assistant.
