William and Elizabeth Grubham were my Great - Great Grandparents. Their son Phillip married Eliza Berry and they were my Great Grandparents.

Phillip and Eliza Grubham were my Great Grandparents. Their daughter Lucy married John William Jones and they were my Grandparents.

Richard Grubham's parents were William and Elizabeth Grubham. He was Philip Grubham's brother and my Great Grand Uncle. He married Jane Kettle from Claines, Worcester.

Thomas and Emma Arnall were the parents of Mary Betsy Arnall who married my great uncle Bert (Albert William Grubham), Philip and Eliza's son and brother of Lucy my Grandmother.

William Clark and Martha Anne (Nellhams) Flowers were the parents of Nathaniel William Flowers who after loosing his first wife Louisa (Lewis) Flowers, married my great aunt Lizzy (Esther Elizabeth Grubham) Philip and Eliza's daughter and sister of Lucy my Grandmother.

Henry and Mary Mason were the parents of Emily Mason who married my great uncle Jim (James Grubham) Phillip and Eliza's son and brother of Lucy my Grandmother.

James and Lucy Baker were the parents of Alice Mary Baker who married my great uncle Harry (Henry Grubham) Phillip and Eliza's son and brother of Lucy my Grandmother.

1871 Census

Address: Kingsland, Herefordshire.

Henry Mason (Head)
Age: 31
Occupation: Labourer.
Born: Kington, Herefordshire.

Mary Mason (Wife)
Age: 31
Born: Leominster, Herefordshire.

Elizabeth L Mason (Daughter)
Age: 18 months.
Born: Leominster, Herefordshire.

William E Mason (Son)
Age: 3 months.
Born: Leominster, Herefordshire.


I'm almost certain these are Emily Mason's parents and siblings. On her marriage certificate when she marries my great uncle James Grubham, in 1912. Her father is named as Henry Mason (farm labourer) and one of the witnesses is William E Mason. Who I assume is her brother above.



1881 Census

Address: Shirlheath, Kingsland, Leominster,

Henry Mason (Head)
Age: 40
Occupation: Labourer.
Born: Kingsland, Herefordshire.

William E Mason (Son)
Age: 10
Born: Leominster, Herefordshire.


I have a feeling that Henry and his son William are working elsewhere from the rest of the family when this census took place. The ages fit, but still no sign of Emily in the family.

In this census Henry's birth place is Kingsland and not Kington as in the 1871 census.

1911 Census

Address: Moss Hill Cottage, **Monkland,

William E Mason (Head)
Age: 40
Occupation: Farm Labourer.
Born: Leominster, Herefordshire.

Mary Mason (Sister)
Age: 30
Occupation: Dress Maker.
Born: Leominster, Herefordshire.

Edith Mason (Sister)
Age: 24
Born: Leominster, Herefordshire.


Age wise William still fits. He has two of his sisters living with him. Emily would have been 16 and could have been elsewhere in a working environment such as Domestic Servant.

Here the family are living in **Monkland, therefore I feel that they would have been here in 1885 when Emily would have been born.


1911 Census

Address: Hatfield, Leominster, Herefordshire.

Thomas Holland (Head)
Age: 38 (Single)
Occupation: Clergyman, (Established Church).
Born: Broxton, Cheshire.

Alice Holland (Sister)
Age: 40 (Single)
Born: Broxton, Cheshire.

*Emily Mason
Age: 26 (Single)
Occupation: Domestic Servant.
Born: **Monkland, Herefordshire.

Annie Elizabeth Gould
Age: 17 (Single)
Born: Long Marsto, Gloucestershire.


Very difficult to find *Emily in any census forms that make sense except for this one. Here she is working as a domestic servant for Thomas Holland and his sister.

*Emily's age and status fits and the following year 1912 she married James Grubham at **Monkland Church, aged 27. If her father Henry was alive as it states he is on the marriage certificate then he would have been 70.
