1891 UK Census
1891 UK Census
About this collection
The 1891 Census of England, Wales, Scotland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man was taken on the night of 5/6 April. The completed collection contains detailed information on each individual who spent the night in individual households including name, relationship to the head of the family, marital status, age at last birthday, gender, occupation, and birthplace. Additional information about the dwelling and property was also collected.
The Census forms were distributed to all households a couple of days before census night and the completed forms were collected the following day. All forms were meant to accurately reflect each individual's status as of 5/6 April 1891 & the household they spent the night in. People who were travelling or living abroad were recorded at the location where they spent the night. All of the details from the individual forms were later sorted and copied into The Census books, which are the original records you can view images of today. [Ancestry.com - 2017]

21 The Crescent, Chorley - about 1921
21 The Crescent, Chorley - about 1921
George Thomas I and Annie next moved their family to Chorley in Lancashire. Sadly, Annie died shortly after they moved and Edgar and his younger sister Cynthia, who was born whilst they were here, were brought up by their elder sister Grace.

The picture on the left shows the newly built family home at 21 The Crescent in the early 20th century. George is doing pretty well to afford this. Click on this link to see the most recent Google Street View of the property.

Edgar would tell amusing stories about his childhood whilst living at this house, including the occasion when his brother Alf was in the toilet and had locked the door. Edgar was bursting to go to the toilet and Alf refused to come out. Well in those days, the doors had brass handles, so Edgar lit a candle and held it under the round metal door knob. Upon hearing all the shouting between Edgar and Alf, Grace came up the stairs to investigate and straight away grabbed the toilet door handle. You can imagine what happened next. Both he and Alf ended up with a clip round the ear!

By all accounts Edgar and Alf were a mischievous pair. They would often climb out of the bedroom window and shin down the drainpipe as a means of getting out of the house.

"On the Snake" - He liked to walk the hills.

Alfred's late Cousin Cynthia Osborne (nee Roebuck):-

"From Dad I was told that he was a very stubborn child when he was growing up at home, and as Aunty Grace was in charge there before Grandad Roebuck remarried, I believe he led her a right old dance. It could have been the loss of his mother. People didn't think in those days that children needed to mourn. I understand that he used to play a lot of tricks on various members of the family."

Anecdote from her niece Cynthia Osborne (nee Roebuck):

"Talking of childhood stories that stick out, the next one involved your [Janette's] mother [Cynthia Clare]. This took place before we left Chorley, and when we were living at 95 Bolton Road, so I couldn't have been very old, perhaps about three or four, which would make your mother about nine or ten. I remember being squeezed into a doll's pram, and taken from no. 95 down Bolton Rd. to the confectioners shop which the Healds ran. I don't know what I was wearing, but your mother had a pink and white gingham dress on. I think she got it in the neck for taking me in the pram down to the shop. I don't remember being too happy about being in a doll's pram either. I remember trying to get out as we passed the hoardings by the side of no. 95."(Source: Janette [Clare]Walker, 2005)

Annie Louisa (Moore)Roebuck - abt. 1922
Annie Louisa (Moore)Roebuck - abt. 1922
This undated photo of Annie Louisa is similar to one taken of her husband, George Thomas I, and might be dated in the first half of the 1920s, making her in her 40s. One of her sons may well have tried his hand at composing the photo around the garden feature. Note that hemlines were beginning to rise above ankle level as the 1920s went on, but still boots or stockings would cover most women's ankles - about 1922 (Source: Janette [Clare]Walker, 2005)

Annie Louisa (Moore)Roebuck - Jul 1915
Annie Louisa (Moore)Roebuck - Jul 1915
This picture of Annie Louisa (Moore)Roebuck has details marked on the back. It was taken in July 1915 at Seamans, Pinstone Street, which is one of the main shopping streets of Sheffield today. At that time Annie Louisa was 37 years old. Her light coloured, decorated blouse and long skirt are characteristic of the late Edwardian times. She is wearing a wedding ring and other jewellery on her left hand. Also on this occasion were taken photos of daughter Grace and son Billy - July 1915 (Source: Janette [Clare]Walker, 2005)

Annie Louisa (Moore)Roebuck, possibly in her late 30's - abt. 1915
This picture, probably a studio portrait, must have been taken during the First World War, and the photo which Annie is looking at is said to be her son, George Thomas II. She is wearing a blouse and skirt of two different colours, probably neither black, and the trimmed collar of her blouse is contemporary - about 1915 (Source: Janette [Clare]Walker, 2005)

Annie Louisa and George in their back garden at The Crescent, Chorley - about 1923
During the 1920s soon after those houses were built. They moved in around the time Cynthia was born in 1922. In the background it is amazing to see how rural the setting looks - those who know Chorley nowadays know how built up the area is now, with the motorway running across a mile away. Although formally posed, this photo has a relaxed look to it, perhaps because one of their sons, rather than a stranger, is taking it - about 1923 (Source: Janette [Clare]Walker, 2005)

It appears as though they're sitting in the vegetable plot as you can just make out the rows of what look like potatoes growing in furrows behind them.

Annie with George Roebuck and Grace, from a boarding house photo - about 1924
George and his family went on holiday most years, most often to Blackpool or Llandudno. He did not drive or have a car, so presumably everyone went by train.

(Source: Janette [Clare]Walker, 2005)

Probably Blackpool as I think the poster on the wall behind is a reference to Bairstow Street - about 1924
