Research Notes

  • Research note 01: He was not sighted in 1881 census. He may have died as Charles in Spilsby Mar qtr 1955 in Spilsby, aged 77.

    Aklison Storey, a fellow researcher, made the following notes -

    In Apr-Jun 1898 Charles Dauber married Mary Ann Melton (Lincoln 7a 1220)
    In 1901 they lived at 11 Swanpool Court, Lincoln – off High Street and now partially demolished. If you look at Streetview you can see how narrow the alley is, but it would have been a very busy area – one of a small number of narrow walkways linking the Brayford pool (with it’s wharfs, mills and heavy industry) to the main shopping street. (I work nearby on offices on Brayford Wharf North, overlooking the water. Brayford Pool is now largely redeveloped with industry moving out and the recently created Lincoln University moving in, along with a selection of restaurants and hotels. With mooring for boats (including many canal boats), it is very picturesque in summer, but very windy in winter. It is also very different to how it would have been then). 1901 census details :
    Charles Dawber 24 General labourer

    Mary A Dawber 27

    William Plant 70 a boarder from Sibsey, Lincs - retired

    Edith Dawber 6 daughter (Edith Melton Oct-Dec 1894 Lincoln 7a 544)

    Sidney Dawber 3 son Lincoln (birth record ?)

    Tim Dawber 1 son (Apr-Jun 1899 Lincoln 7a 562)

    (I can’t find them in 1911)

    Mary Ann dies at the age of 46, Oct-Dec 1920 (Lincoln 7a 561). It is possible that Charles remarried Elizabeth A Hewlett in Oct-Dec 1939 (Spilsby 7a 2281). Charles dies at the age of 77, Jan-Mar 1955 at Spilsby (to the east of Boston) -3b 539..
