Ellen Louise King (née Scott) (15 September 1882 – 18 March 1927)
Ellen was born in Baldock to Thomas and Frances Scott, but grew up in Lambeth where her father was a draper. It is believed she married Ernest George King in the late 1890’s and they lived in Cambridge at 42 Thoday Street. They had two daughters: Kezia Winifred (1900-1985) and Mildred Adelaide (1904 – 1977). She died in March 1927.
Sarah King (née Foreman) (1848 – 16 April 1930)
Sarah was the daughter of Sarah and Stephen Foreman. She was born in Pakenham where her father was a shoemaker. She married George King in 1868 and they lived in Pakenham. George was the village blacksmith. They had at least three children: Rosa (1870-), Kezia (1871-) and Ernest George (1877-1939). George died in 1897 aged 55, although he was recorded on the 1891 census as a disabled blacksmith. She was widowed aged 49 and in 1901 was living with George and Ellen at 42 Thoday Street. In 1911 she was living in Hobart Street and working as a nurse to a family with two small children. She died in 1930, outliving her daughter-in-law.
Ernest George King (8 February 1877 – 26 December 1939)
Ernest appears to have been known by his middle name of George and was the son of George and Sarah King. He was born and raised in Packenham. In 1891 he was 14 and recorded on the census as being an agricultural worker. He moved to Cambridge and became a railway guard and lived at 42 Thoday Street. In 1939 he is recorded as living at 32 Catherine Street. He died aged 62 years.
Kezia Winifred King (22 November 1900 – 1 January 1985)
Kezia was the eldest daughter of George and Ellen King. She was raised in Thoday Street and later Catherine Street, before living at 37 Cavendish Road where she lived from at least 1939 – 1966. In the 1939 census she is recorded as working as a food factory packer. She died aged 84 years old in Ely and is buried with her parents and grandmother.
