life... 1845 to 1899
Henry has intrigued me as he is the one who made the big move up from Rogate to Plumstead, so here is a chronological account of Henry's life, There are links to various source documents, maps and pictures
2 Nov 1845 Henry was born in Rogate, West Sussex, England, over 160 years ago. His parents were John (aged tba) and Harriet nee Hersey (aged tba). Henry's birth was registered on the 4 Dec 1845.
16 March 1850, Richard Albery (Henry's Grandad) dies aged 81 (connection to be confirmed)
So when and why did Henry move north to the outskirts of London some 80 miles? Could it have been the recent deaths in his family in Rogate?
13 Jun 1867, Ann Albury
(Henry's 2nd eldest sister) was buried in Rogate aged only 15
Still unsolved is how did he meet Susan Groombridge, who was born in Croydon?
1870 aged 23, Henry got married to Susan Groombridge on the 24 May at Plumstead church, his occupation was a coachman
1871 aged 24, he lived in Burrage? Grove, Plumstead with Susan, his occupation was still a coachman. See the census return for further details
27 Jan 1872, Sidney Edward
was born, their first son (also my direct ancestor).
1882, Amos Groombridge was
1891 aged 45, the family had grown and census return shows that they all still lived in 90 Maxey Rd.
25 Dec 1896, Sidney got married, and on the wedding certificate it states Henry's occupation was an engineer, probably at the Woolwich Arsenal
16 Apr 1899, aged 54, Henry died at home from TB, S Albery (Susan, his daughter) was "present at death", his occupation was recorded as "Arsenal Laborer" and the death was registered on the 19 Apr
