The Family of Charles Wombwell and Emily Rumball

Charles Wombwell was the youngest son son of Charles Wombwell and Jane Dellow. He was baptized at Clavering Parish Church on 21st September 1834.

At the 1851 Census he was listed as an unmarried son aged 16, working as an agricultural labourer, and living at Church End, Clavering with his parents, brothers William and John and sister-in-law Mary Ann.

At the 1861 Census he was still an unmarried agricultural labourer, now aged 26, and still living with his parents, now at Strickland Green, Clavering.

It appears that he married Emily Rumball soon after the 1861 Census since, by the time of the 1871 he was shewn as married to her and living at Strickland Green. Still working as an agricultural labourer, he was now listed as 33 years of age (I suspect this was an error, probably in transcription by the enumerator). Emily was listed as 35 years old. Living with them were their children Mark, Joshua Lee, and Simeon, Emily's father James Rumble (Rumball).

By the 1881 Census Charles was now shewn as aged 45 - this is consistent with all the records except the 1871 version. Emily is shewn as aged 46. Charles was still working as an agricultural labourer, and the family was now living in Arkesden Road, Clavering. Mark, Joshua and Simeon were still living with their parents.

At the 1891 Census Charles, now aged 55 and still an agricultural labourer, was living with Emily (also 55) at 9 Hill Green, Clavering (next to Hill Green Farm House). Their accommodation encompassed 4 rooms. Their son Mark had a separate household of 2 rooms at the same address, and he lived there with his children Annie and Ethol.

I have to admit that, to date, I have little further information on Mark's family, similarly with Joshua's family, and nothing at all on whether George Enos or Simeon, the two youngest sons, had any family.
