Alice Maud Barnard (née Stearn) (c.1864 – 22 August 1932)
Alice was born in Cambridge. In 1881 she was living with her aunt Rebecca Fletcher, who was a milk-seller employing 3 men – Rebecca seems to have employed various of her family as part of the business. Alice married Philip Barnard in early 1891. Philip was a joiner and they lived initially at 3 Charles Street (1891) and later at Hemingford Road (1901/1911).
Alice and Philip had two daughters: Olive Maud (1893-1978) and Mary Edith (1898-). She died at 107 King Street in 1932.
Philip Barnard (Phil) (August 1868 – 8 May 1952)
Phil was born in Kentish Town, and baptised at St Philips Church in Clerkenwell on 17th July 1878. He was the son of Thomas and Ann (née Buttress) and in 1881 he was living at 3 Grafton Street with his father, sister and grandfather. Both his father and grandfather were carpenters, and Phil followed in their footsteps and became a joiner.
He was widowed in 1932 aged 64, and then went to live with his daughter Olive. Olive had married John Hunt but been widowed early. She then remarried to Leonard Norman, who was actually older than her father. In 1939 Phil was living with Olive and Leonard at 18 Woodlark Road. At the time of his death he was living at 71 Panton Street, but died in Addenbrookes Hospital aged 83 years old.
