92A York Street

A Coal Porter

1881 – 1901

Number 92a is not on the Census for 1881, 1891 or 1901.


Arthur Furness, 29, coal porter, b. Cambridge

Florrie S Furness, 28, b. Cottenham

Agnes Hewitt, 23, Florrie’s sister, jam factory worker, b. Cottenham

Oscar Bass, 17, boarder, wood yard labourer, b. Wood Green, London

Arthur Hewitt, 10, son, b. Chesterton

Robert M L Furness, 5, son, b. Cambridge

Florries and Arthur have been married for six years and have had two children, one of whom has died.

The 1911 census is filled in by the householder, in this case it is hard to read as there is a lot of crossing out and a hole in the middle of the page.  It is unclear who Arthur Hewitt is the son of.


Ruth Easton, who grew up at 12 Stone Street, has married Frederick Tyler and is living here with at least three grown up children.
