Frederick Summerlin (1873 – 18 January 1914)
Frederick was born in the village of Arrington, six miles north of Royston and baptised there on 7 December 1873. He was the son of George Austin Summerlin (1836-1888) and Sarah Ann (née Wilkin) (1839-1904). George Summerlin was a blacksmith and the family lived in Fen Ditton (1881) before moving to 14 Brandon Place (1891) after he died. By the age of 18 Frederick was working as a baker, together with his older brother Harry. From at least 1896 – 1901 he lived with his mother at 25 Gold Street, where he ran a bakery. He married May Ethel Jude (1877-1908) in 1904 and the couple lived at 38 King Street where he later ran his bakery. After May died in October 1908 he married Jane Elizabeth Rolfe (known as Jennie) (1889-1979) in 1910 and they had one son: Frederick George (1912-1997).
Parish burial records document that he died at the Brook Villa Asylum, Green Lane in West Derby, Liverpool, which was a private asylum. Jennie Summerlin lived at 10 New Street and ran a shop (1939). She died at 25 Ashley Court, East Road on 13 February 1879, just before her 90th birthday.
