Andrew Helenus Moyes (28 January 1830 – 4 January 1894)

Andrew was the eldest son of John and Elizabeth Moyes. He was born in Edinburgh, and was baptised there in 1830.  By the time his younger brother was born 5 years later the family were living in London. By the time he was 21 in 1851 the family were living in Lincoln and running a hotel there – Andrew was working as a bookkeeper in the hotel.

He married Catherine Trafford on 17th January 1856 in London.  They had at least 13 children together: Andrew John [1857-1905], Thomas Trafford [1857-1923], Kate Isabel [1858-1956], Arthur Helenus [1859-1859], Arthur Robert [1860-1893], John Helenus [1861-1906], Edward Alexander [1863-1863], Elizabeth [1865-1883], Edward Alexander [1866-1867], Frank [1868-1907], Edgar Ralph [1871-1871], Hugh Miller [1872-1926] and Philip Alexander [1874-1933].  Four of the children died very young, and were buried in their grand parent’s grave.

He ran the Red Lion Hotel at 6 Petty Cury for most of his married life, but also appears to have had a hand in the running of the Bull Hotel which his father owned on Trumpington Street.   From 1871 onwards he is recorded as living at 28 Petty Cury.  His occupation is described as a hotel keeper and farmer, and it is also recorded that he owned land at Shelley Row in Cambridge.  When he died in 1894 he died a wealthy man leaving probate valued at £11,001.

Of his children Andrew John went on to run a hotel in Lincoln, Arthur Robert ran the Bath Hotel on Benet Street,  Frank ran a hotel in Ely,  and Hugh Miller ran a hotel in South Africa.
