Census details

  • Charles Alfred Harbord Postle appeared on the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1871, at 30 Row 99, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, in the household of William Harbord and Hannah (?), his grandparents.
  • He appeared on the census taken on the night of 3rd April 1881, living in Cemetery Road, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England in the household of his parents, George Postle and Catherine Isabel Harbord. He was 10 years old.
  • In the census taken on the night of 2nd April 1911 Charles Alfred Harbord was the head of the household and Elizabeth was his wife. The address was 4 Row 101, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. They had been married for 12 years, and she says THIS MARRIAGE has produced just the one child who is still alive. I think she must have got it wrong, as the child with them for this census was the child of her first husband, Charles' brother George William Harbord POSTLE. I will, however, keep my eye open for other children. Their son Ernest was living with them.
