Quiet time

So, here we are again and, this time, we're in the middle of four whole days without a single ancestor birthday! And only one wedding . . .

Rose Ann Bigley, the daughter of Charlotte Bigley and an unknown father (well, unknown to us, I like to think that Charlotte knew who it was), married yesterday in 1881 to James Vaughan. The wedding took place at Holy Trinity, Ely (the Lady Chapel of Ely Cathedral) and two weeks later she and her new husband (did I mention that James was her third?) were to be found in the census at Common Muckhill in Ely. What an address!

Fortunately they were soon to move to Nutholt Lane in Ely, an altogether nicer address, and they begat Abraham. They also had Rose's son Charles from her marriage to Frederick Constable and they took in the three youngest of her brother Isaac's children when their mother died. Must have been quite crowded.

That's all for now. More soon.
