Maude Catharine Clarke (c.September 1878 – 23 June 1880)

Maude was the infant child of Edward and Lucy Clarke.

Edward Charles Clarke (1836 – 10 December 1913)

Edward was the son of Charles and Elizabeth and was baptised at St. Andrew the Great Church on 11 September 1836. His father was a bricklayer and he grew up at 36 Thompsons Lane. Aged 24 Edward was working as a cook and married Lucy Galer in 1861  The couple had ten children: Lucy Annie Eliza (1862-1929), Emma Elizabeth (1864-1931), Edward Charles (1866-1936), Laura (1869-), Eliza (1870-), Robert William (1871-1941),  Jessie (1874-1957), Frances (1875-), Maude Catharine and Frederick (1883-).

Edward worked as a cook and the family lived at 17 Orchard Street (1871) and 8 Benet Street (1881/1891).  8 Benet Street was next to the Eagle Tavern, which is perhaps were Edward worked, as he was not documented as being a college cook. He and Lucy later ran a Lodging House at 47 Jesus Lane assisted by daughter Frances (1901/1911) and he died at 113 Mawson Road in 1913.

Lucy Clarke (née Galer) (c.1841 – 24 November 1925)

Lucy was the daughter of Robert and Emma and grew up on Thompsons Lane and then Eden Street. Her father was a labourer and her mother a college servant.  She married  Edward Clarke aged c.20 years old and died in 1925.
