Census details

  • James was named first in the census taken on the night of 6th June 1841. Others in the house included Sarah Ann Ward, James Larn, George Larn, Sarah Ann Larn, Mary (Ann) Larn and John Larn, but no relationships were recorded in this census. The address was Back of Cromer Place, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England. He was aged 32 years.12
  • In 1861 in Great Yarmouth James Larn was included in the household of Elizabeth PATTERSON a widowed charwoman aged 48.. George Larn and Mary Ann Long also appeared on the same census schedule. James is listed as a lodger, and George and Mary Ann are listed as Son and D-I-L. I think the census taker means the son and D-I-L of James, not Elizabeth.
  • In 1871 in Great Yarmouth James Larn was included in the household of Elizabeth PATTERSON is the head of the house a widowed charwoman aged 54.. James is listed as a married lodger, so it appears that he and Sarah were separated. There is a nurse child aged 2, and 2 other lodgers in the house as well.
  • In 1881 in Great Yarmouth James Larn was included in the household of Elizabeth PATTISON, who James has been with as a lodger since before 1861. She is now aged 63 and is still a charwoman.. James is listed as single? with no occupation. There are other boarders in the house, one of whom is Lily LARN aged 13 born in great Yarmouth.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: May have had a daughter Elleanor LARN born 1843. She married a Robert KING aged 24 on 25/12/1866 in Yarmouth. Robert's father is John KING.
