Juby in Diss Norfolk
Mary Juby married Richard Crisp in Diss in 1803 and they had 13 children, about 7 of whom survived to adulthood. One of those children - born 1812- was Simon. He went on to become a pork butcher (which might be why my husband's favourite is pork!). Simon married Sarah Ann Page (born in Clacton, Essex) in October 1837 and one of their children - Richard (born 1847) became a coffee house keeper in Lewisham when Simon and his family moved from Norfolk to the bright city lights of what is now South London. Richard married Fanny Barr and one of their children Albert Augustus (born 1884)went on to become a pastry cook.
Is this why my husband is so keen on food?
Albert married Annie Cheeseman and they had many children, the oldest surviving one also named Albert Augustus (born 1911 Walthamstow) was the first of four direct generations of Crisps NOT to be involved in food or catering.
Does any of this ring any bells with anyone?
