Census - Chettleburgh

Home Up

This page details all census entries we have found relating to the Chettleburgh family.

These are transcribed as is (no extra information added) apart from "dittos" being expanded.

What were the Chettleburghs up to in 1901?  Well I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that Phoebe is in fact Annie (or Anna), as for the second census running she is (literally) no-where to be found, and yet there is someone of the right age (I think) in the house with her middle name... Also, I suspect an error in the census, as it says that all the children were born in Woodton. It actually just says "do  do" under Sarah's birthplace, when I suspect that the "do  do" dittos should correspond to William's Norwich, Norfolk.  Also, where was Robert for the 1891 census?

But, bizarrely, there is another census entry in 1901 for a Ellen Chettleburgh, 21, born in Norwich, Norfolk:

1901 -  119 Hilderness/Wilderness King St, Norwich (Old Lakenham) [PRO: RG13 Pc-1841 Fo-59 Pg-45/46]
Name Relation Status Age Profession Birth Place
Sarah Chipperfield Wife M 70 On own means Upton?, Norfolk
Maud Bunting Grand Daughter S 18 ??? London
Ellen Chettleburgh Boarder S 21 Chocolate Packer Norwich, Norfolk
Louisa Bowes Visitor - 23 Baker Breadmaker Woodton, Norfolk*

Normally, I wouldn't pay this any attention (it obviously can't be the same person). However, what are the chances of her staying with someone who's granddaughter (and hence son in law, since she is single) is called Bunting? Could be a coincidence, but what if she was recorded twice (the census occurred over a space of time, or the landlady added her when she wasn't physically there? Plus a visitor from the infinitely depopulated Woodton! Hmm, more investigation required...

 

What were the Chettleburghs up to in 1891? 

1891 - Cricketers Arms, 67 Lindley St, Lakenham, Norwich (Old Lakenham) Pro Ref: RG12 1525 Folio 53 Page 34

Again, in the above census entry we have the right family, but the person we are looking for, Phoebe Chettleburgh is not listed, and at age 7 she is unlikely to be having a date with James!

1881 - Lakenham - William Chittleburgh

How about 10 years previously in 1881? Well, they've been recorded (or transcribed) as Chittleburgh's, but they're still recognisable:

We have two more elder siblings Mary A. and William, who must have left home before the 1891 census. The address for the above is not given (apart from Lakenham) however nearby returns are for The Cock Public house and the Villa Public House which are both in Old Lakenham (although their entry is on the other side of the Cock).

1871 - Lakenham - William Chettleburgh

In 1871 William is living in Lakenham - again the exact address is unknown although Lakenham Road is given, but it is on the same census return page as the The Cock Public house in Lakenham.

1861 - Lakenham - William Chettleburgh

In 1861 William is living in Kensington Road, Lakenham - again the exact address is unknown although it was 7 entries away from The Cock Public house in Lakenham.

1841 - Old Lakenham - William Chettleburgh

In 1841 William is only 3 years old and living in Old Lakenham, only two entries away from "Mill". Note: ages above 15 rounded to nearest 5 years.

1851 - William Chettleburgh, where ?

 

What about in 1851? Well we have no clear winner here, it is possible William was not in Norfolk at the time. But there are a few possibilities:

However I believe I have a better candidate for his brother and mother in two adjacent entries:

Here is a William Chittleburgh, who I believe is the Uncle who was living with the other William Chettleburgh at the Cricketers Arms (the age is about right)

As yet unlinked census entries:

1851 -???,  Topcroft, Loddon, Norfolk (PRO: HO107, Piece: 1820,  Folio: 569,  Page 14

William Chittleburgh Son U 18 Ag. Labourer Topcroft, Norfolk
Marianne Chittleburgh Daughter U 16 Ag. Labourer Topcroft, Norfolk
William Chittleburgh GSon U 12 Ag. Lab. Daug. Topcroft, Norfolk

The above is a possible, however, the birthplace is given as Topcroft, not Norwich, also who is the parent as none of the above are married? Also the birth year is 1839, not 1838. Thirdly, the absent father's brother is called William Chettleburgh (born in 1833), so it is unlikely that another uncle with the same name would be born in 1812!
