This fallen headstone is located roughly 9 rows west of the central path in the parish area of St Bene’t. There is very little left of the inscription but we were able to confirm that Sarah Doggett is also buried here.

Harriette Doggett (1838 – 9 January 1907)

Harriette was born in Longstanton, Cambridgeshire and was the daughter of William and Elizabeth Doggett. She was born in c.1838, but by later census returns had changed her year of birth to 1841. In the 1841 census she was living with her parents and older brother John at Brook End and her father was working as a butcher. By 1851 they had moved to the High Street and her father was now farming 70 acres of land and employing 4 men and 1 boy. Harriet was working at home, presumably looking after her 4 younger siblings. By 1861 William was listed as a publican and farmer.  Harriet was still at home. She did not marry and on the 1881/1891 census returns was noted as a visitor. In 1881 she was at 34 Emery Street with Marianne Morris and her sister Sarah Doggett.  Both Harriette and Sarah were noted as being farmer’s daughters.  In 1891 she was living with her cousin Dinah Collett at Hall Farm House in Hadstock, Essex.

In 1901 Harriette and her sister Sarah were running a Lodging House from 10 Warkworth Street.  She died at 10 Warkworth Street aged 70.

Sarah Doggett (1844 -1922)

Sarah died in December at Roseneath on Histon Road aged 78.
