Primary events

  • Death of Father: His father Stephen Bessey died in April 1853.
  • Birth: Samuel George Bessey was born on 30 June 1853 in Hemsby, Norfolk, England.1
  • Christening: He was christened on 7 August 1853 in St Mary the Virgin, Hemsby, Norfolk, England. Father noted as Stephen, and no mention that he was deceased. We can assume he was alive (at least) at the time Samuel was concieved).1
  • Marr Reg: The marriage of Samuel and Harriet Buck was registered in the quarter ended December 1874 in the Great Yarmouth registration district.2
  • Death: Samuel died circa 1889, In 1901 Herbert is named as a son of George but as we know he was named as BESSEY in the 1891 census, I am assuming that Herbert was born before George and Harrit married, but was concieved after Samuel died.

Secondary circumstances

  • Occupation: Samuel was a fisherman.
