Charles Worrell Blades Long (1866 – 5 January 1921)
Charles was born in Downham Market and was the youngest son of James and Sarah Ann (née Blades) Long. James was a master decorator, court bailiff, parish constable and sanitary inspector, who was well known within the town. Aged 15 Charles was working as a clerk at a merchant’s office (1881) and later worked as a railway clerk (at least 1891 onwards). He married Elizabeth Cave (1866-1964) in 1890 and they had five children: Elsie Martha Whittlesey (1891-1973), Irene Golden (1892-1979), Charles Cave Alan (1894-1968), Lena Louise Whittlesey (1896-1993) and Vernon Worrell (1898-1982). The family lived at 8 Gwydir Street, and then 10 Gwydir Street (at least 1901 onwards). Charles died at home in January 1921.
Elizabeth Long continued to live at 10 Gwydir Stret with her daughter Irene. She died at the house in 1964, and Irene also died at Gwydir Street in 1979, meaning it was lived in by one family for c.80 years.
