Census details

Some aspects of George Chugg's life. George died of natural causes in the street on his way home from buying the newspaper on the evening of Thursday 12th February 1891. There is no mention of his wife in the newspaper report at the inquest, however, her death was registered with a number a little larger than his. I believe this points to her having died a few days after he did.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: North Devon Journal 19 February 1891 - At the inquest it was stated george died suddenly the previous day. Louisa, a daughter, had seen him on his way home, only a short time before he died, and he was well. Elizabeth's death 6 weeks later was mot in the papers that I have access to.
  • Research note 01: Some other researchers have widely different, and differing, views of this man's ancestors. I found George's daughter with 2 GAMMON brothers (born c1795) in 1861, along with 2 other relatives of the same age. I am using this as confirmation George is the son of James CHUGG and Mary GAMMON..

Children of George Chugg and Elizabeth Bament
