Harry George  Newstead (c.1883 – 14 February 1938)

Known as George, he was born in Newmarket and was the son of George and Julia (née King). His father worked as a groom/ostler and George grew up at Jarvis’ Yard, Newmarket (1891) and Station Road (1901). He married Maud Hammond in Newmarket in 1911 and they had five children: Leslie George (1911-1955), Sidney Charles (1912-2003), Edward Harry (1914-2001), Ronald Victor (1920-1979) and Kathleen Vera (1923-2014). In April 1911 the couple were lodging at 16 Norfolk Terrace and George was working as a brewer’s drayman. George is believed to have served in the 1st World War, and the family lived at 27 Gwydir Street from at least 1919 onwards. He died at Mill Road Infirmary aged 54 years old.

Maud Ethel Newstead (née Hammond) (3 March 1887 – 6 September 1956)

Maud was born in the village of Lidgate, to the south east of Newmarket and was the eldest child of Sidney Julius Hammond and Sarah  Jane (née Leach). Her father was a grocer’s assistant and Maud grew up in Woodditton (1891) and Exning, Suffolk (1901). She continued to live at 27 Gwydir Street after she was widowed and died aged 69 years old.
