Frederick Faulkner (1837 – 27 June 1899)

Frederick was the son of builder Frederick and his wife Frances.  He was born in Fulham and grew up on the King’s Road.  Aged 24 he was living in Brighton and working as a grocer’s assistant although by the time he married in 1866 he was working as a foreman to an oilman (lamp oil seller).  Frederick married Amelia Poulter on 21 October 1866 at St. Mary’s Church in Bryanston Square, London.  The couple went to live at Marylebone Lane (1871/1881) before moving to live at West View in Grantchester (1891) and then at 5 Cromwell Place, Walnut Tree Lane off Newmarket Road.

Frederick set himself up as an oilman in his own right and died as a result of an domestic accident aged 62.  At the resulting inquest Amelia said he had gone upstairs to clean the window on 28 April. The window coping had broken in two and Frederick had fallen to the ground.  He was taken to Addenbrookes Hospital and was found to have broken both arms as well as three ribs.  Amelia visited him in hospital regularly and  he seemed to recover and the bones re-fused together.  However on 17 May he started showing signs of kidney disease and deteriorated from there.  Francis Eddison, assistant house surgeon at Addenbrookes said the post mortem had found ‘an old outstanding kidney disease, disease of the bladder and some old signs of pleurisy. The cause of death was disease of the kidneys but he should say that the accident accelerated death.  In the course of time the kidney disease would no doubt have caused death, but had it not been for the accident he would probably have lived a long time’

Amelia Ann Faulkner (née Poulter) (1843 – 21 October 1937)

Emma was the daughter of Philip and Emma and was baptised on 6 October 1844 at All Saints’ Church. Her father was a shoemaker and she grew up on York Street (1851) and then at 56 King Street (1861).  After she was widowed Amelia went to live with her brother Charles and his family at De Freville Avenue (1901) and then Abbey Road (1911 to at least 1920).  In 1935 she was living at 111 Mowbray Road and died  at home aged 94 years old.
