Harry Hockley (b. 27 Jun 1871), son of William Hockley and Charlotte Cock, married Fanny Ann Rootkin (bap. 10 Dec 1871 in Great Dunmow, Essex), daughter of William Rootkin and Louisa Sharp, in Shoreditch, London, in the last quarter of 1892. They may have married in Shoreditch Church, but the actual venue could be confirmed with sight of the marriage certificate. 

The previous year, 1891, Fanny Rootkin (19) was a General Domestic Servant in the household of a Henry Smith (45) in Friern Barnet, Middlesex.

Harry and Fanny Ann had a bakers' dozen kids, with three lost in infancy:

In 1901, Harry Hockley (28) Gas Stoker from Dunmow, Essex, lived in Alfred Road, Buckhurst Hill, with wife Fanny Ann Hockley (28), William Hockley (8) [Frederick William] born in Hoxton; Harry C Hockley (7), Annie L Hockley (4), Alfred J Hockley (3), George Hockley (1) and Ernest J Hockley (0). 

In 1911, Harry Hockley (39) Gas Stoker, was still in Buckhurst Hill with Fanny Ann Hockley (39), Harry Charles Hockley (17) Errand Boy for an Ironmonger; Annie Louisa Hockley (14) Domestic Servant; Alfred James Hockley (13) School and Milk Boy; George Hockley (11), Arthur Thomas Hockley (8), Alice Beatrice Emma Hockley (5), Florence Hilda Hockley (4) - the last four also at school - Edward Hockley (2) and Dorothy May Hockley (5 Months). (Haven't located the eldest, Frederick William, who would have been around 19 in 1911, but if he was going simply by William, as in 1901, he will be harder to pinpoint.)

Harry and Fanny Ann Hockley were still listed in Buckhurst Hill in 1921.

Fanny Ann Hockley died at 62 in 1933 M Quarter in EPPING Vol 04A Page 550.

In 1939, Harry Hockley was living at 53 Loughton Way, Buckhurst Hill.
