Inscription

William Warwicker (18 May 1790 – 29 October 1861)

William was born in Witham in Essex, and was baptised there on 2nd September 1790.  He was the son of Isaac and Mary (née Barnes) Warwicker.  He married  widow Alice Golland (née Lewis) on 27th July 1819 at St. Michael’s Church.  Alice had been married to hosier John Golland (1774-1807) and had taken over the business at Trinity Street after being widowed. She had had five children from her first marriage including Delia.  Alice and William had at least one child together: Louisa Clark (1822-1836).  They lived at 31 Trinity Street (1841/1851) where William worked in the hosiery business.

Alice died in December 1853, and aged 63 years old William was left a widower. He married for a second time to  Jane Aikin on 12th April 1855.  Jane and William were living at 32 Trinity Street in 1861, with their two live- in shopmen (sic) and two domestic servants. He died at Trinity Street aged 71 years old on 29th October, and was buried at Mill Road Cemetery on 4th November.

Jane Warwicker (née Aikin) (1 January 1809 – 26 January 1893)

Jane was born in Ashwell in Hertfordshire.  She was the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Aikin.  She married when she was 46 years old, and was widowed six years later.

She took over the Trinity Street hosiery business and was running it in 1871 with the help of 4 shopmen (sic) and two domestic servants.  By 1881 the business reported 4 shopmen and one porter.  By 1891 she had retired but was still living at 32 Trinity Street.  Also living with her were two domestic servants,  companion Ann Marshall and 70 year old William Bodger, who had worked for the business since at least 1841 and was now a retired ‘hosier’ – Jane appeared to have taken him in after retirement.  She died in January 1893 leaving an estate worth £31,282, 2s and 8d (over £4m at 2018 values).
