Ellen Kathrine Mann (d 1944)
Ellen, baptised Ellen Catherine, was born 1867 in Fulbourn. Her parents were Jacob Marsh, a labourer born in Balsham and Rebecca Franklin born in Little Wilbraham.
She had nine children by George Mann, a stonemason from Denver, Norfolk, who was born in 1843 (34 years older than her). As well as being a stonemason George ran The Golden Rose pub in Emmanuel Street.
For many years they lived off Cherry Hinton Road but after George and their son Harry, died in 1904 Ellen moved to Broad Street then 2 Trinity Place. She managed to support her family by working as a char lady (domestic help – usually cleaning other people’s homes). When Ellen died she was living at 60 Beche Road. This was believed to be the home of her daughter.
Arthur Mann (1902 – 1908)
Arthur died when the family were living in Trinity Place. It seems his death was the result of an accident when he was hit in the face by a cricket ball and developed tetanus.
