Caroline Eaden (née Robson) (c 1797 – May 1856)

Caroline and Henry were married on 10th August 1827 in St Dunstan in the East, City of London. They do not appear to have had children.

Henry Eaden (21/5/1802 –  1892) 

Henry was the second son of John and Ann Eaden to be entered in Dr Williams Library of Non Conformists. He was a wine merchant. He lived with his wife Caroline at 12 Market Hill, Cambridge. In 1871 his nephew, Henry, also a wine merchant (son of his brother Francis) was staying with him.

Mary Wilson (1839-1904)

Mary was the second child of Francis and Sarah Eaden. She married Thomas Fossick Wilson at St Andrew’s church Chesterton, Cambridge on 5th April 1893, when she was 54 and he was a 70 year old widower with adult children. Thomas (1822-1900) was originally from Norwich. He is described as a “gent” in the parish register.  It is not certain where Mary and Thomas lived after their marriage but his death was registered in Norwich.

When Mary died, she was living at 12 Guest Road, Cambridge. She was 63 years old.
