Emma Wisbey  (née Hunt) (1857 – 29 December 1931)

Emma was the daughter of brazier George and Hannah Hunt.  She was born and grew up in Sawston and married Charles Wisbey (1852-1938)  in 1878.  They had five children: Gertrude Annie (1879-1952), Sidney Charles (1881-1956), Ernest Escourt (1883-1908), Margery May (1884-1913) and Bertie (1890-1916).

By 1911 they were residing at 58 Trumpington Street where both Charles and Emma were documented as being caretakers.  She died in Cambridge in 1931.
