David Newland (1859 – 4 May 1917)
David was the son of George and Jane (née Tysoe) and was born and raised in Brampton, near Huntingdon. His father worked as an agricultural labourer, and his mother as a ‘seamstress to waterproofer’. Aged 21 David was living with his parents and working as a groom. He later worked for Rev. Arnold Smith, at the Rectory in Boxworth as coachman. His future wife Annie also worked for Rev. Smith as a nurse and the couple married in Boxworth in 1893. They had one daughter: Dorothy Mary (1894-1979) who was born in Boxworth, but by 1901 the family had moved to live at 2 New Court, King Street. David continued to work as a groom and Annie was a college bedmaker. He died at home aged 58 years old and was buried at Mill Road Cemetery on 7 May 1917.
Ann Jane (Annie) Newland (née Mendham) (23 August 1865 – 28 November 1953)
Annie was born in the village of Skeffington, eleven miles east of Leicester and was the daughter of John Mendham (1825-1870) and Eliza (née Windsor) (1835-1889). She grew up with her widowed mother and three siblings in Tugby, Leicestershire where Eliza worked as a laundress (1871). By 1881 they had moved to Hall Walk, Enderby and Annie was working as a sewing machinist. She later worked as a domestic servant/nurse at Boxworth before marrying David Newland. By 1930 she had moved to live at 3 Wray’s Almshouses, King Street and remained there until at least 1950.
