I am interested in a particular household from the 1881 census:
John Jewitt, b. Pontefract 1839, is my g.g.grandfather. In the census he is listed as aged 42, occupation Cordwainer, dwelling at Abeys Yard, Pontefract, Yorks.
He was married to Catherine Anne Jewitt, b. Ferry Bridge, 1843.
Their children born before 1881 are listed in the census:
Anne Margaret b. 1868
Jack b. 1870,
Virtue Emma b 1874,
Ernest b. 1875.
Subsequently they had 2 other sons
Charles b. 1882 (my g. grandfather)
Frank b. 1887.
The census also lists Thomas Whittan, lodger, b. Purston 1851, also a cordwainer.
Are these your relatives too? I am interested to know who John Jewitt's parents were & where they came from. Also where was Abey's Yard? Did the other siblings marry & have children? Please get in touch if you have information to share. Thanks.
