Census details

  • He appeared on the census taken on the night of 7th April 1861, living in 44 Episcopal Chapel Street, Norwich, Heigham, Norfolk, England in the household of his mother, Hanna Christiana Spooner. He was 7 years old.
  • In 1871 in Great Yarmouth George Henry Chittock was included in the household of the Pyecraft family. George was a boarder.
  • In the census taken on the night of 3rd April 1881 George Henry was the head of the household and Mary was his wife. The address was Cresset Lane, Kingswinford, Staffordshire, England. Their son Frank was living with them.
  • In the census taken on the night of 5th April 1891, George Henry was the head of the household and Mary was his wife. The address was 20 Cressett Lane, Kingswynford, Staffordshire, England. Close to another Chittock. Their children Frank, Edith and John were living with them.
  • In the census taken on the night of 31st March 1901, George Henry was the head of the household and Mary was his wife. The address was 76 Cressett Lane, Kingswynford, Staffordshire, England. Their children Frank, Edith, John and Harry were living with them.
  • In the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1911 George Henry was the head of the household. The address was 86 Cressett Lane, Kingswynford, Staffordshire, England. This could be a bit of a scandal? The form (see exhibit) appears to have been filled in by the 19-year-old Harry George CHITTOCK. The first 2 entries (George aged 65 and Edith aged 66, head and wife) are in a different hand. Edith has had 3 children, 2 still alive, which shows she is not the woman who was married to George Henry. Significantly, I think, the length of the marriage is not shown. George's full name of George Henry CHITTOCK is on the signature part of the form. This means the head of the house was counted twice - once with his wife Mary Ann, and once with Edith. His son Harry was living with him.
  • In the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1911, George Henry was the head of the household and Mary was his wife. The address was 50 Crescent Road, Rhyl, Denbighshire, Wales.
