Census details

  • In the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1871, Martha was the wife of the head of the household, James William Larn. The address was 3 Garrison Walk, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. Martha's age does not agree with her age as quoted when she married. DOB at marriage 1842, in census 1845. This would make her 16 when she married but I cannot find her birth in Yarmouth in either year. We know that the James in the census is the one whose father is James as this was quoted when he married Martha in Yarmouth..
  • In the census taken on the night of 3rd April 1881, Martha was the wife of the head of the household, James William Larn. The address was 18 Lime Kiln Walk, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. Martha is shown as 31 and she was born in Norwich. In free bmd there are no marriages between a James LARN and a Martha between after the one in 1861, so I think this is still his first wife..
  • In the census taken on the night of 5th April 1891, Martha was the wife of the head of the household, James William Larn. The address was Great Yarmouth, England. Matha is shown as being born in 1849 (age 42) in Rockland St Mary.
  • In the census taken on the night of 31st March 1901, Martha was the wife of the head of the household, James William Larn. The address was 17 Lime Kiln Walk, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. Martha is now shown as being born in 1847 (age 54) in Rockland St Mary.
