Sarah Maria Dunn (née Ward)  (1842 – 9 March 1880)

Sarah is believed to have been the daughter of James and Mary and grew up at Adam and Eve Row where her father was  a baker/grocer. She married Henry Dunn in 1864 and the couple had at least four children: Herbert Henry (1865-1946), Walter Frederick (1868-1931), Lilian (1869-1874) and Edith Jane (1869-1957). Henry worked as a domestic butler and the family lived in Lincoln where all four of their children were born before returning to live in Cambridge (at least 1874 onwards) when Henry took up a post as  butler at King’s College. They lived at 6 Lttle St. Mary’s Terrace and then 3 Inverness Terrace, Mil Road, where Sarah died aged 37 years old.

Henry William Dunn (1840-1912)

William was the son of Charles William Dunn and Mary Ann. He grew up at 4 Willow Walk and his father was a tailor. Henry worked as  valet before his marriage to Sarah and then as a butler. He maried for a second time to widow Almena Bosworth (née Freeman) (1846-1922) at St. Paul in the Bail Church, Lincoln in 1881. They lived at 5 Fitzwilliam Street (1891/1901) before retiring to live in Lincoln (1911) where Henry died aged 72 years.
