67 Kingston Street

An Engine Fitter & a Watch Repairer


Head of household is William H Rayner, a 28 year old Labourer who was born in Trumpington.  He is married to Lucy, 30, who was originally from Chrishall, Essex.  The couple have three young Cambridge-born children, William is 4, Ernest is 1 and John is just three months.


In 1891, 67 Kingston Street is home to the Harradine Family. George Harradine, a 34 year old Engine Fitter, is married to Mary Harradine, a 35 year old from Steeple Morden. They have two children: Blanche Harradine, aged 3, and newborn Frank. Both Blanche and Frank have their birthplace listed as Steeple Morden, suggesting that the Harradines used to live there before moving to Kingston Street soon after Frank was born.


By 1901, 67 Kingston Street is home to the Foulkes family. Alice Foulkes, a 30 year old from Tamworth, is married to Charles Foulkes, a 40 year old Watch Repairer from Liverpool. They have two sons, 12 year old Clarence Foulkes, and 10 year old Louis Foulkes.


By 1911, Number 67 is home to Rowland King, a 28 year old Grocery Warehouse Packer from Melbourn. He is married to Ellen King, a 30 year old from Swaffham Bulbeck. They have a daughter, Olive Amy, aged 2.
