This family tree starts with George H(enry) Hudson (c.1834-1915) and his wife Sarah A. Hudson (c. 1841, Lowestoft, Suffolk) and their eight children. Earlier records have proved difficult to reconcile, so visitors may be able to improve on the Society's efforts!
George and his wife spent most of their married life in London, where George appears as a grocer in 1871 and grocers warehouseman - living firstly in 33 Thorpe Mews, Chelsea and then 172 Kilburn Lane, North-East Chelsea. He then finds employment as a Railway Porter (moving to 91 Droop Sreet, Kensal Town, Chelsea) before returning to his birthplace to live at 2 Beaconsfield Road, St Mary, Dover, still portering for hotels and inns at the age of 74. He is still at that address in the 1911 Census. By this date, the Head of household for that address was his daughter-in-law.
The children from George and Sarah's marriage were made up of:
|b. 1862 (Lowestoft), Alice|
|b.1863 (Stratford, Essex), Albert Edward [see Additional Notes below]|
|b.1865 (Sevenoaks), Ada|
|b.1867 (Middlesex), James|
|b.1870 (Nottinghill), John (m. Not Known)|
|b. 1870 (Middlesex), Mary|
|b. 1874 (Nottinghill), George Henry (m. 8th April 1899, to Sarah Alice Rixon at Buckland, near Dover) (d. 1910, Dover)|
|b.1877 (Nottinghill), Vernon Alberon (m. Elizabeth Maud) (d. 1961) - Myra's Grandfather|
Albert Edward Hudson, b.1861-2, Stratford, London: Bricklayer and General Labourer in and around London until 1911 when, at the age of 49, he is recorded as a "Belmont Workhouse Inmate", Brighton Road, Sutton, Surrey. We could not find an obvious record for him in 1901, so it is not clear how found his way to the Workhouse. Remained Single.
John Hudson, b. 1870, was a "collector for a Stores" in 1891 living with his father at 91 Droop Street, Kensal Town, Chelsea). In 1901, John is still with father but now in Dover, working as a "marine porter" from No.2 Beaconsfield Road. We don't know the name of his wife so the marriage and death of his wife may very well have happend between the 1891 and 1901 Censuses - but John's three children in 1901 were - Nellie (b.1893), Mabel (b.1895), and John (b.1898).
George Henry (1847-1910) died young at the age of 36, leaving Alice ("Sarah Alice") with their 7 children. We know nothing of the circumstances. By 1911, Alice was Head of household with her father-in-law still living in the house (No.2 Beaconsfield Road). George and (Sarah) Alice Hudson's children were:
|b. 1899 (Dover, Kent), Vernon|
|b. 1899 (Dover, Kent), Harry|
|b. 1903 (Charlton, nr Dover), Kathleen Alice|
|b. 1906 (Charlton, nr Dover), Winifred Maud|
|b. 1908 (Charlton, nr Dover), Eva May|
Vernon Alberon Hudson (1877-1961) was born in Nottinghill with his parents living 172 Kilburn Road, Nottinghill in 1881. As a 15-year old lad, he was an "errand boy in a pianoforte makers" in London. By 1911 "Vernon Albrow Hudson" (married in 1905 to Elizabeth Maud), is shown as a Chief Steward on the Dover-Calais Cross-Channel Service, with a "postal address" of Dover Harbour Pier. Among his four children was Myra's mother, Gladys May Hudson.
The children from Vernon and Elizabeth's marriage were made up of:
|b. 1906 (Charlton nr. Dover) Gladys May (m. George Archibald Macey)|
|b. 1907 (Charlton nr. Dover) Florence Ivy|
|b. 1909 (Charlton nr. Dover) Dorothy Eileen|
Myra's Aunt "Flo" is remembered as a formidable woman.
