Profile

Full name George Kinsey
Born 20 June 1866 in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire [registered in Burton-upon-Trent, December 1866].

Census Notes

According to the 1871 census, George is the one of three children to Jabez and Elizabeth (née Nixon). There are also four more relatives (son-in-laws and brother-in-law), living with them at Ordish Street in Burton. His father is a brewers labourer and grocer.

According to the 1881 census, George is the second oldest of four, not including the Illsley twins, who also live them and George's parents at 189 Thornley Street in Horninglow, Burton-upon-Trent. George is an errand boy, his father a brewer's labourer.

According to the 1891 census, George is now married to Rosa E., and the two of them are now boarding with William & Elizabeth Perrott at 3 Mollett Street, Birmingham. George is a brewers labourer.

According to the 1901 census, George, who is still married, now has one daughter, Elizabeth P.. He is a licensed victualler back in Burton-upon-Trent, at 20 Park Road.

According to the 1911 census, George is now a commission agent, still married with two more daughters, Ethel and Irene. Another had tragically died. They live at 25 Uxbridge Street in Burton.

Married to Rosa Elizabeth Butler [registered in Burton-upon-Trent, March 1891].
Died apparently 1911, should be aged 44 or 45, but see notes below.
Death notes Although most statistical sites state that Kinsey died in 1911, there is no specific evidence. Wikipedia states January 1911, which is obviously wrong, as he signed the 1911 Census return on 2 April.
There are three possibilities, none of which are probabilities. They are one, aged 46, in October to December 1911 in Liverpool, aged 52 in January to March 1919 in Fylde, or aged 69, October to December 1937 in Birmingham.
