Priscilla Fuller (1843-1928)

Priscilla was the daughter of Frederick and Mary Ann Baillieu (also sometimes written as Baillieux) and was born in Cambridge.  Her father worked as a railway porter, and she grew up in Royston and then at 10 Princes Street with her siblings who included Sarah and Elizabeth. By the age of 17 Priscilla was working as a machinist/seamstress. She married James Fuller on 28 September 1867 at St. Paul’s Church. 

James worked as an engine driver for the Great Eastern Railway (GER) and they lived at 15 Queen Street (1871) and later at Star Cottage, 44 Gwydir Street (at least 1881 onwards).  The couple had at least eight children: Frederick James (1868-1908), Alfred William (1869-1943), Edith Mary (1872-1951), Albert Victor (1877-1943), Ethel Esther Baillieu (1881-1971), Sidney Percy (1884-1964), Daisy Priscilla (1884-1953) and Edmond Arthur (1886-1975).

After she was widowed in 1905 she went to live at ‘Aylestone Corner’, 46 Pretoria Road with her daughter Edith who was a singing teacher and shop assistant.  She died in 1928.


James Fuller (24 October 1842 – 6 February 1905)

James was born in Bishop’s Stortford and was the son of James and Hester Fuller.  By the time James was 8 years old the family were living at Cambridge Place in Cambridge and his father worked as a labourer.  He married when he was 24 years old and died in 1905.


Alfred William Fuller (19 September 1869 – 19 May 1943)

Alfred was the second son of James and Priscilla.  He was baptised at St. Paul’s Church on 30 January 1870. He married Emily Harding (1868-1934) in 1899 and in 1901/1911 the couple were living in at Elwyn Road in March and Alfred was working as a railway clerk.  They did not have any chidlren of their own, but raised Emily’s niece Rose Harding.

By the time Emily died in March 1934 Alfred had retired from the railway. After her death he moved to live with his sister Edith at 46 Pretoria Road.  He was still living at Pretoria Road when he died in 1943.


Frederick James Fuller (17 November 1868 – 24 September 1908)

Frederick was the eldest child of James and Priscilla and he was baptised on 31 January 1869 at St. Paul’s Church.  Aged 23 he was still living at home and working as a musician. It is believed that Frederick married Bertha Barton in 1904, and he died in Godstone in Surrey aged 39 years old.
