Frederick Sippel (1817 – 13 January 1868)

Frederick was born in Ely and was the son of John Burkhardt and Rebecca Sippel.  His father was a music teacher and by at least 1841 his parents and brother Charles had moved to Cambridge. Frederick lived with his sister Catherine (1821-1890) at 18 Trinity Street where Frederick worked as a music teacher, and Catherine as a tabacconist (1861).   Catherine married Thomas Todd in 1864 at All Saints and it is believed that all three lived at 18 Trinity Street, with Frederick eventually working as a tabacconist also. He died aged 49 years old at home.
