Brentford Families - Hutchinson
Lynn Hayter wrote about her Hutchinson forebears and the following notes were published over the period 2008 to 2010. In April 2015 Lynn provided a further update in the form of a .pdf file. This includes details of Lynn's research during the last two years.
I've been researching my Mother's side of the family and have now discovered that they too lived on the High Street, so like you I seem to be quite tied to it. This is what I have found so far and please add it to the website if you want to.
In the 1871 census I found my great grandfather Charles James HUTCHINSON, wife Ann (Ann Maria HAYWOOD) and family living in the High Street, apparently next door to an unoccupied building known as "Mount Pleasant". Charles James was a carman and there were 6 in the household, which included his brother William, aged 22 and a waterman.
In the 1881 census I found them living at 407 High Street. Charles James was still a carman and by then he and Ann Maria had 6 children including my grandmother Harriet Eliza aged 3, who was born at number 407. Brother William had moved out but Elizabeth, Maria and Emma Hayward had moved in (said to be Mother, sister and sister but I think these must be the in-laws and the Hayward is a miss-spelling of Haywood).
By the 1891 census Ann Maria had died and Charles James had remarried to Eleanor COOMBER, a widow born in Dartford, Kent. They were then living at 79 Distillery Road with 3 of Ann Maria's children, George, Harriet E. (my grandmother) and Henry still at home, plus 2 of Eleanor's grown-up children, Elizabeth and Thomas R., who was a carman's assistant.
By the 1901 census Eleanor was a widow again and still living at 79 Distillery Road. Her son Thomas R. had moved out, her daughter Elizabeth had married Benjamin WAKELIN, a carman, and they and their 4 children were also resident. All of Ann Maria's children had left home, including my grandmother, who we believe went to work as a housemaid at the Atheneaum Private Members Club in London.
However, the relationship with Brentford High Street did not end as at least 1 of my grandmother's siblings (William John, a waterman) later lived in one of the roads off the High Street and my grandmother came back to live in Catherine Wheel Yard with her 3 daughters, the eldest of which was my Mother, Dorothy Elizabeth STONE.
