Census details

  • Susan was named first in the census taken on the night of 6th June 1841. Others in the house included Andrew Blake, Sarah Bedwell and Damaris Blake, but no relationships were recorded in this census. The address was Rendham Road, Kelsale, Suffolk, England. She was aged 72 years.. There is also Sarah BEDWELL a 20 year old female servant, Elizabeth BEDWELL aged 14 (nothing listed against occupation) and a Geoge BARKER aged 3, All except George were born in Suffolk. Abraham PEARSONS (18) and William EASTER (14) appear to be labourers working on the farm. They were also born in Suffolk.
  • Susan Bryant appeared on the census taken on the night of 30th March 1851, at Kelsale, Suffolk, England, in the household of Andrew Blake and Sarah Bedwell, her son.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: In 1710 there was a Robert BRYANT who was registered to vote in Budesdale. Budesdale is what is printed in the book, but I think this may be Botesdale which is less than 15 miles from Mendham.

    Robert BRYANT left a will 1818, as did a Sarah BRYANT Widow 1827. There are COOPERS (at least) mentioned in the latter, so I have dowloaded them and they need transcribing. Both came from New Market Suffolk, as did Jeremiah BRYANT who left a will in 1775. I have downloaded that as well.
