Census details

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: There is a possibility that Herbert was with his mother Ann BOYCE in 1891 and 1901. They were living in 8 Row 44, and they were both married, but neither spounse was present on census night. They had with them Herbert's younger brother Bertie. Ann was a retired fish merchant, Herbert was a woking fish merchant and Bertie was a fruiterer. Ann was born in Clacton on sea in 1806, Herbert in Diss in 1873 and Bertie in Yarmouth in 1876. I confirmed this by finding Herbery Henry's christening in Diss. His parents were Samuiel and Ann.
