We catch up with Charles Moore in 1891. He is now 38 but he has
remarried to an older woman called Mary Herd who is 42. They live in
12 Edinburgh Buildings, Newington, Southwark ,South London. He
could still walk to work in Fleet Street north of the river.
They now have seven children.
Their 14 year old
daughter Mary E Moore, born in 1877 in Lambeth has left school
and is working as a Domestic Servant. Charles W Moore is 14 born
10th August 1876 in Lambeth, London is working as a
Machine boy in the printing trade. On Charles William Moore’s
1876 birth certificate he is not shown as a twin so it is
reasonable to assume that Mary Moore gave birth to Mary E Moore
in her previous marriage. The next child is called Alfred Moore.
He is aged 13, born 1878 in Lambeth, and is working as a
Warehouse boy. The younger children Harry aged 11 and Albert
aged 10 were also born in Lambeth but William aged 5 and Francis
aged 3 were born in Southwark. It would be safe to suggest that
Charles and Mary moved to their new home between 1881 and 1885
after the death of Maria Moore (Rignall).
The Birth of
William George Moore on 4th October 1885 is very important to our story as he
becomes the father of the six Moore brothers that live through
World War two.
Joel Moore senior
and Eleanor have also moved. They now live at 241 Rosemary
Road, Norwood, Lambeth, South London. Joel is now 74 and is
still shown a coal porter. Eleanor is called Elean on the census
record and is aged 67. In the space on the census form where the
information about a persons occupation is normally put it says
that Eleanor ‘had accident quite young’
