In Loving Remembrance of HENRY HAYES died Sept 30 1890 in the 72nd year of his age

Henry Hayes (1818 – 30 September 1890)

Henry was the son of Peter and Ann (née Akerman) and grew up on the Belvoir Castle estate in Lincolnshire (now Rutland) where his father was coachman to the Duke of Rutland.  Henry was baptised in Woolsthorpe, near Belvoir  on 26 April 1819.  He married Eliza Maria Phillips (1815-1882) on 21 December 1845 in Cambridge and they had one son: James Akerman (1849-1889).  Henry worked as a cook and the family lived  at 2 Foundry Yard, Bridge Street (1851/1861) and Belvoir Cottage, Histon Road (at least 1871 onwards). Census records do not specifically record him as being a college cook so he might have worked in a hotel or such like. Henry died at home aged 72 years old and was buried at Mill Road Cemetery on 3 October 1890.
