  • Notes 
    • Henry Birchenough was the third of Ann's four children, born in 1841. By the 1851 Census he was listed as silk throwster half time, at the tender age of nine!

      He was nowhere in sight at the 1861 Census but was back for the 1871, working as a bricklayer's labourer and living with his mother at 21 Union Street. The surprise is that he has acquired a daughter: Sarah Ellen Barrow This is quite possibly Henry's illegitimate daughter by Catherine Barrow, a fellow silk worker who would have been 17 in 1861 and who died in 1874 age 30. Henry married Ann Usher in 1876 and Sarah Ellen Barrow is listed as their step-daughter on the 1881 Census, in Union Street just a few doors up from Henry's mother.

      Henry and his wife spent the rest of their lives in Union Street. When Sara Ellen left home they took in their young nephew Enoch Usher following the death of his mother in childbirth in 1882. Enoch was the son of Ann's brother Ralph. He was still living with them, age 31, at the 1911 Census.
