Joseph Hardwick (28 November 1835 – 3 July 1911)

Joseph was born in Ampthill and raised in Bedfordshire.  His parents were Thomas and Charlotte Hardwick, and his father worked as an agricultural worker.  By the age of 25 he had moved to Cambridge,  was lodging with Mary Robson at 2 Botolph Lane and working as a tailor. He married Susan Juler at St Giles’ Church in Cambridge on 25th February 1862. Joseph and Susan had eleven children: Thomas Olney (1864-1922), Harry H (1866-), Grace Amelia (1868-), Frank Rowland (1870-1888), Gilbert Ernest (1870-), Frederick Percy (1871-1963), Joseph Horace (1874-), Arthur Harold (1876-1958), Charles Montague (1877-), George Sidney (1879-) and Florence Maud (1882-).

In 1871 the family were living at 8 Botolph Lane, but by 1881 had moved to 35 & 36 Trumpington Street.  Joseph worked as a tailor and robe maker, and in 1881 was employing 2 men in his business.  He was still at Trumpington Street in 1891.  In the census of April 1911 Joseph and Susan were living in Austin Street in Hunstanton, and he was described as a retired tailor.  He died a few months after the census was taken, and died in Norwich.

Thomas was the eldest son of Joseph and Susan.  He worked as a tailor like his father.  He married Alice Elizabeth Morrell (1867-1963) in 1897.  In 1911 the couple were living at 79 Norwich Street.  Thomas was hospitalised on 18th January, and died 5 days later at the Fulbourn Hospital. He was 46 years old.

Frank Rowland Hardwick (1870 – 1 March 1888)

Frank was the fourth son of Joseph and Susan Hardwick, and the younger twin of Gilbert Ernest.  He died at 35 Trumpington Street aged 18 years old.

Susan Hardwick (née Juler) (1836 – 21 February 1921)

Susan was born in Cambridge and baptised on 9th November 1836.  She was the daughter of butcher James Juler and his wife Susan (née Wells).  She grew  up on King Street (1841) and later at Newmarket Road. After being widowed at the age of 75 years old she lived with her daughter Florence Maud at 31 Bateman Street and died there in February 1921 aged 85 years old.
