Head of Household is Robert Porter, a 48-year-old warehouseman from Cambridge. The family have moved from Cherry Hinton.
Robert’s daughter Nelie, 19, is keeping house for the family, while her mother, Sarah, is away. Sarah is with the family on the 1881 and 1901 Census, but missing on the 1891. Perhaps she is away looking after elderly relatives?
Son Fred, 17, is a tailor’s apprentice, Harry, 14, is an errand boy, Rose, 8, is at school and the youngest is 4-year-old Christopher Ralph. All the children were born in Cambridge.
1901 – 1911
Head of household between 1901 and 1911 is Sarah Fenton, a 53-year-old Dressmaker originally from Waterbeach. She lives here with her sister Elizabeth Fenton, aged 45 in 1901, who is a general shop keeper.
By 1911 Elizabeth is a shop assistant at a drapery and was possibly born in Bottisham rather than Waterbeach.
