Harry Samuel CATT (1860-1937)

and Amelia Eliza CALLOW (1872-1937)

 

Harry Samuel Catt and Amelia Eliza Callow married on 19 November 1895 in Bexley, Kent.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Harry Samuel Catt was born on 8 September 1860 at Winchelsea Station SER(?) Brede, Sussex.  He was the son of Edward Catt (1825-1902) and Mercy Ann Foster (1831-1888).  At the time of the 1861 census he was 7 months old and living with his parents at No. 2 Ferry, Winchelsea.  When the 1871 census was recorded he was a 10 year old scholar, living with his parents and siblings in Cooks Street, Winchelsea.  His father was then a shepherd.  In 1881, he was a 21 year old gardener and the eldest of his siblings living at home with his parents at Friars Road in Winchelsea.  So far I have not been able to identify him in the 1891 census.  He died aged 76 years on 9 June 1937 in Bexley.

Amelia Eliza Callow was born on 19 November 1872 in Wimbledon, Surrey.  She was the daughter of William Callow (1846-1899) and Amelia Jane Bellingham (1846-?).  She died aged 64 years on 18 April 1937 in Bexley.

When the 1901 census was recorded the couple and 3 children were living at 107 High Street, Bexley, Kent.  Harry was then a 40 year old general labourer and Amelia was 28 years old.

    Harry had is own haulage company with a fleet of lorries.  The couple were quite comfortable until the business got into some kind of financial trouble and he committed suicide.  Katherine found him hanged in the loft of their home, however, his death may not have been recorded as suicide.
