Alice Duncan born 1860

Postby Sucher » Mon Aug 21, 2017 5:36 pm

Alice Duncan was born 26 February 1860 in London and the daughter of George & Elizabeth Duncan. Baptised at Wellington Barracks

I have the following sightings.

1871 Census - with her mother & family in Shepherds Bush
1881 Census - Kitchenmaid at the very posh address - 1 Palace Gate, London in the household of Robert Drummond, banker
1891 Census - Living with her ’sister’ Maud (who is really her daughter) at 107 Hackney Road, London. Maud’s baptism record shows her father to be George Duncan but I suspect the name given was that of her deceased grandfather
1912 Electoral Roll 24a Eastman Street - No other person at this abode. I assume this the same woman based on proximity to Hackney Road.

After that - nothing with the possible exception of a death registered in Marylebone (where her sister lived) in June quarter 1932

As ever, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

That's my girl Colin, thank you for finding her, much appreciated. The Hackney Road address is good, father's name George also good and he was indeed a superintendent at the ill-fated Columbia Market, also known as 'The Buildings'. I can now follow her line down through her children as per the 1901 census. I now also know her other Christian names.

Regards
