  • Occupation: Robert was a Bricklayer, There was a Henry Alflat, bricklayer, listed in Kelly's in 1865.

Census details

  • In the census taken on the night of 6th June 1841 Robert was included in the household of Henry Alflat in Crimplesham, Norfolk, England along with Henry Alflat, Mary (?), Charles Alflat, William Alflat, Elizabeth Alflat, Matthew Alflat, John Alflat, Edward Alflat and Martha Alflat. He was aged 10 years.
  • He appeared on the census taken on the night of 30th March 1851, living in Crimplesham, England in the household of his parents, Henry Alflat and Mary (?). He was 20 years old.
  • In the census taken on the night of 7th April 1861, Robert was the head of the household and Anna was his wife. The address was Wimbotsham, Norfolk, England. With one 15 year old servant. Also next door is another bricklayer - Edward ALFLAT aged 26 who was also born in the same village as Robert. Could be a brother?. Their children Anna, George and Mary were living with them.
  • In the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1871, Robert was the head of the household. The address was Stoke Lane, Downham Market, Norfolk, England. Next door is a William ALFLAT who is a 47 year old bricklayer who was also born in Crimplesham. Maybe this is yet another brother?. His children Anna, George, Mary, Adelaide, Edith, Kate and Elizabeth were living with him.
  • In the census taken on the night of 3rd April 1881, Robert was the head of the household. The address was The Moor, Reepham, Norfolk, England. Living as a boarder with Charlotte HALL. He is listed as married so this confirms the family I found with Anna Maria back in Crimpleshaw.
  • In the census taken on the night of 5th April 1891, Robert was the head of the household. The address was 16 Clyde Cottages, Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, England. Living as a boarder with Thomas Steel. He is now a widow so we can say Anne Marie died by 1891.
  • In the census taken on the night of 31st March 1901, Robert was the head of the household. The address was High Street, Stoke Ferry, Norfolk, England Living as a boarder with the Cromwell family.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: On the 1871 census schedule he was a schoolmaster. This is as it appears, but it is possible the census taker made an error..
