sons interred at Hertford’

“Till he come”

Job Edmund Rout (1850 – 14 January 1924)

Job was born in Huntingdon and baptised there on 20 April 1851.  He was the son of Job and Sarah Rout.  Job (Snr) was a journeyman cordwainer (shoemaker) and the family lived at Priory Lane in Huntingdon (1851) and later at Great Northern Street (1862).  Job Edmund Rout married Mary Ann Prime at St Ives in 1876.  They had six children: Ethel Jane (1877-1931), Edmund James (1879-1885), Herbert Samuel (1880-1951), Frederick John (1882-1946), Arthur Edmund (1885-1887) and Eveline Mary (1891-1960).  Job worked as a carriage maker and the family settled in Hertford in Hertfordshire where all their children were born.  The family lived at 83 Railway Street in Hertford (1881-at least 1902).  Job and Mary then moved to 157 Gwydir Street – in the census of 1911  Job was described as a retired master carriage builder and  the couple were living at Gwydir Street with their daughters.  By 1920 they had moved to 61 Norwich Street. Job died in Cambridge aged 73 years old.

Mary Ann Rout (née Prime) (c.1848 – 7 November 1931)

Mary was born in Barley, a village 3 miles south east of Royston in Hertfordshire.  Her parents were James and Mary Prime. Her father had died by the time she was 3 years old.  She was baptised at Holywell cum Needingworth near Huntingdon on 28 February 1858 and she married Job Rout when she was c.27 years old.

Mary died aged 83 years old and was still living at 61 Norwich Street at the time of her death.  Job and Mary’s youngest daughter Eveline continued to live at the house until she died in 1960, meaning the house was occupied by one family for over 40 years.

Edmund James Rout (1879 – 1885)

Edmund was born in Hertford and was the eldest son of Job and Mary Rout.  He died aged 5 years old. He was buried in Hertford, but is remembered at Mill Road Cemetery.

Arthur Edmund Rout (1885 – 1887)

Arthur was the fourth son of Job and Mary Rout.  He was also born in Hertford and died aged around 18 months old.  He was buried in Hertford, but is remembered at Mill Road Cemetery.
