In 1881, Henry (46), is listed as a Furniture Dealer on Market Hill, Maldon, Essex. Living with him is wife Eliza (42), Florence (10), Rosa (7), Alice (5), Alfred (2) and Ada (0).

In 1901, Henry (66), was a House Furnisher at 172 East RoadCambridge. Living with him are wife, Ellen (62) and five of their children: Florence (29), Rosa (24), Alfred (22), Ella (20) and Minnie (16). Also listed is Daniel Seymour (67), visitor, who I imagine is Eliza's brother. (Alice Gertrude Prior had died in 1896, aged 19.)

And in 1911, Henry (76) is still a House Furnisher in Cambridge, with wife Eliza (72), Florence (40), Rosa (37), Alfred (32) and Winifred (26).
