“Until the day break”

Marshall Crouch (1867 – 5 November 1929)

Marshall was born in Manea, just east of Chatteris in Cambridgeshire and was the son of Isaiah and Caroline. Isaiah worked as an agricultural labourer and the family lived at Clay Pits in Manea.  Aged 23 Marshall was lodging in Hatfield Broad Oak in Essex and was working for Great Eastern Railway as a porter. He married Jane Poole (1866-1960) in Manea in 1892 and the couple did not have any children.

In 1901/1911 they were living at 10 David Street and Marshall was working as a railway signalman for G.E.R. He died at David Street aged 62 years old.

Jane continued to live at 10 David Street until at least 1939, and is believed to have died in 1960 aged 94 years old.
