‘Sacred to the Memory of my dear husband
Who passed away December 30th 1938.
“Until we meet again”
Lewis Hudson (1863 – 30 December 1938)
Lewis was born in Pentney, Norfolk – a village between King’s Lynn and Swaffham and was baptised there on 12 April 1863. He was the son of Robert and Mary, brother of Maria Elizabeth and grew up in Pentney where his father was a hawker, and his mother a shop keeper (1871). Aged 18 Lewis was lodging in King’s Lynn and working as a butcher. He married Agnes Annie Tyers (1863-1896) in 1892 in Cambridge and they had two children: Mabel Edith (1892-1973) and Algernon Leonard (1894-1954).
Lewis was widowed in August 1896 and went to live with his mother in law Mary Tyers at 2 Malcolm Street where she ran a Lodging House. Lewis worked as a gardener and married Ellen Mary Cornell (1884-1972) in 1919. The couple lived at 29 Thompsons Lane (1920-1927) and then at Blyth House, 1 Willis Road (at least 1935 onwards). Lewis died at home aged 75 years old and was buried at Mill Road Cemetery on 3 January 1939.
Ellen married widower Ernest Hugo Tatchell (1866-1949) in 1942 and continued to live in Cambridge.
