Emma Harradine (née Davey) (1856 – 16 January 1911)

Emma was the daughter of Elijah and Sarah and grew up at Gloucester Place. Elijah was a plumber who died when she was 6 years old  and aged 21 Emma was working as a housemaid at Felstead Grammar School in Essex. She married widower William Harradine in 1884 and they had two daughters: Alice Maud and Beatrice May. The family lived at 84 York Street and William worked as a bricklayer. Emma died in January 1911 and although her grave monument gives her age as 48 years old, it is believed she was actually 54 years old.
