Henry Carrington

Home Up William Carrington Mary Carrington (Bullin)

Henry Carrington was born in  Litcham around 1845.

His parents were William and Mary Carrington.

He was married to Phoebe Smith, and had many children including James Carrington in1868.

He was listed in the 1881 and 1891 censes as being a starch miller. This was likely to have been in the factories of J&J Colman (the famous Mustard manufacturer - starch was also produced there in large quantities). These were at the Carrow works on the river about half a mile to the east of where he lived in 1881 and 1891.

By the time of James Carrington's marriage to Phoebe Chettleburgh in 1909 Henry was deceased, and his job had been listed as a gardener. Perhaps he had become a gardener after retiring from the Starch Milling. In fact, he must have been dead as early as 1901, as that year's census lists Phoebe as a widow.

The full list (as far as we know) of his children is:

 
Child's Name D.O.B. D.O.C. Occupation D.O.M. D.O.D
Henry 1 Feb 1864 16 Oct 1865 Stone Dresser
Frederick 9 Jan 1866 1 Dec 1869
William 1 Oct 1871 8 Nov 1871 Mustard Miller
Mary Ann ~1876 Dressmaker
Eliza ~1879 <1901
Gertrude ~1881
James 2 Jan 1868 1 Dec 1869 Painter Dec 1897, Dec 1909 7th October 1917
Katy Eliz. 17 Oct 1873 13 Dec 1873

Henry, Frederick, William and James are all listed as being born/Christened at St Marks, Norwich.

 

In 1886 Henry Carrington junior married Sarah Ann Edridge in Norwich, Norfolk. I assume that his this is the 22 year old son.

In 1867 a Sarah Ann Ettridge (or Eddrige) was born in Wayland, Norfolk.

In 1891 Henry Carrington junior married Emma Bunting in Norwich, Norfolk and was listed in the 18911901 census living with her..
