Emanuel Lett (c.1828-91)
In 1863, Emanuel Lett and his wife were living at 25 Andersons Court, Newnham Road, (a turning, four doors south of the mill, which presumably ran down to the mill stream, with eight dwellings) Cambridge. In that year his occupation was described as ‘groom’, and in 1864 as ‘college servant’. He and Ann had at least three daughters: Charlotte Ann (commemorated here), Anne Esther (baptised 24 May 1863) and Laura (baptised. 30 October 1864). In 1881, they were living at the same address, Emmanuel described as a ‘labourer’.

At the time of her death aged 77, as a widow, Ann was living at 18 Portugal Place, Cambridge.
