LETTS FAM­ILY

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - QUESTIONS & ANSWERS -

QAOur ex­perts an­swered a query for Su­san Jenk­ins in the Fe­bru­ary is­sue of the mag­a­zine about her Letts fam­ily. Alan Turner had some­thing to add. He had a closer look at the 1911 census and no­ticed that the L of Letts looked like an S so he looked for a mar­riage record un­der Setts and found one for a Ge­orge Setts in 1891. Al­though he couldn’t find an­other mar­riage for Ge­orge and Louisa, he did find them in the 1901 census as man and wife, liv­ing at James Road Court, Streatham. Ge­orge is 60, a navvy, born War­ling­ham in Sur­rey and Louisa is 36, born in Maryl­borne (sic). They have a son Henry, four, born Bal­ham. In the 1891 census, Ge­orge is 50 and liv­ing with wife Ann, who is 70, born in Shep­per­ton at Zen­nor Road, Streatham, and on the 1881 census the cou­ple are liv­ing at Ben­nor Road in Streatham.
