Hezekiah White Few (1864- 1901)
Hezekiah was born in Willingham, the son of Peter and Jemima Few. He grew up at 52 Bradmore Street (1871), and his father worked as a railway fireman. In
1881 he was living at home at 28 Kingston Street, and his father was by then working as a railway driver. Hezekiah was by then a solicitor’s clerk.
He married Louisa Ada Careless in 1892, and they had at least three children: Arthur Edwin (1895-1916), Kathleen Mary (1897-1898) and Adeline (1899-1908). Arthur was born in Norwich, so the family must have lived there for some time, but by 1901 they were back living in Cambridge. In 1901 they were living at 63 Mawson Road, and
Hezekiah was a coal merchants clerk. He died at 115 Mawson Road on 27 November 1901 aged 37.
Louisa Ada Few (1868 – 1906)
Louisa was the daughter of Charles and Mary Careless. She grew up at 28 Broad Street where her father was a rag merchant/marine store dealer. She married when she was about 24 years old. She died at her father’s house at 27 Broad Street on 16 March 1906 aged 38 years. Newspaper records of her death recorded her as ‘the last surviving child of Charles Careless’.
Adeline Few (1898-1908)
Adeline was born in Norwich and was the youngest of the three Few children. She died aged 9 on 11 February 1908.
Arthur Edwin Few (c1895-1916)– WW1 soldier – see also Life Story page
