George Germany (c.1841 – 20 July 1924)

George was born in Helions Bumpstead in Essex. He was baptised on 7th March 1841 in Bumpstead-Helion.  His parents were William and Anne Germany, and his father worked as a tailor. By 1861 he had moved to Cambridge and was working in the Buttery at Clare College. He married Betsy Kelly in 1861.

They had at least eight children: Edwin Robert Kelly a family adopted son [1858-1941], Ellen [1865-1945], Agnes [1868-1949], George Arthur [1872-1948], Fred [1876-1956], Betsy [1881-1959], Isabella [1883-] and another unknown child.

The family were living at 19 Burleigh Street in 1871, where Betsy was a shopkeeper, and George was a gardener.  In 1881 they were living at Belgrave Road and George was working as a labourer. In 1891 he was working at the Railway Inn as an Ostler. He was still working as an ostler in 1901, but by 1911 his occupation was recorded yet again as a labourer.  He was widowed aged 77 years old, and died in July 1924 aged 83 years old.
