Jane Hill (née Cox) (26 August 1850 1850 – 16 November 1925)
Jane was the daughter of butcher Thomas Cox and married Edmund Hill on 13 September 1874 at Trinity Church, Marylebone. Edmund was also a butcher and they had seven children: Edmund Morton (1875-1938), Henry Charles (1878-), Frederick Hewer (1880-), Maud Caroline (1882-), Jane Gertrude (1887-) and a further two children who died as infants. The family lived at Great Titchfield Street (1881) and Cricketfield Road in Hackney (1891) but by 1901 Edmund had retired and the family had moved to Ash Tree Villa in Waterbeach. Edmund’s father and brothers had already moved to Cambridgeshire, so it was perhaps this which brought them to Waterbeach. They were still living in Waterbeach in 1911, but are then thought to have moved to live with daughter Maud at 77 Norwich Street. Jane died in Cambridge aged 75 years old.
Edmund William Hill (5 February 1848 – 25 August 1929)
Edmund was born at King Edward Street, London and baptised at Christ Church, Greyfriars on 5 March 1848. He was the son of Richard Morton Hill (1814-1884) and Ann (née Hewer) (1812 – 1861) and his father worked as an an oilman, and later as a dairyman. Edmund trained to be a butcher and aged 23 was working for William Moss on Wormwood Street, London before marrying Jane when he was 26 years old. He died at 77 Norwich Street in the summer of 1929.
