Harry Stone and Ellen Minnie Loud

Harry Stone (b. 17 Nov 1902), youngest son of Charles Stone and Emma Middleton, married Ellen Minnie Loud (b. 6 Sep 1904), 13th child of George Alfred Loud and Tryphena Davis, on 26 Dec 1929, in Axminster.

In 1939, Harry Stone, General Labourer and Ellen M Stone, Ironer (Laundry) lived at 12, North Street, Axminster. Living with them was Amelia M Stratchcombe (b. 1918), Domestic Servant. My feeling is that she was most likely to have been a boarder or lodger who worked elsewhere. 

Harry and Ellen had one son in 1948 (afaik, still living).

Ellen M Stone died on 1 Mar 1966, aged 62. 

Harry Stone died in 1982, aged 80.

George Alfred Loud and Tryphena Davis

George Alfred Loud (b. 1860), son of Edward Loud and Ann Phippen, married Tryphena Davis (b. 1 Jul 1863), daughter of John Davis and Charlotte Enticott, in 1882, in Axminster. In 1881, both the Loud and the Davis families had lived in Paradise Row, Axminster, so George married 'the girl next door'. "In the early 1920s there was disquiet amongst the members of the Axminster UDC about the very poor state of 7 small cottages known collectively as Paradise Row, including a report of a plague of rats. These cottages (which can be seen on the 1905 OS map) had been built many years before in an alleyway behind (in 2018) the former Axe Vale Social Club building."

Before he had married, in Honiton, on 7 Mar 1881, George Loud of Castle Hill, Axminster, then aged 20, Labourer Out of Employ - which probably explains exactly why he did so - had enlisted in the Devonshire Regiment. He joined the Militia - reserve, equivalent of the TA - but there's no indication that he was ever deployed. At the time of his Attestation, he was 5ft 6in, with a 32in chest, a fresh complexion, dark grey eyes and dark brown hair.

Tryphena as a girl's name is of Greek origin meaning "delicacy". In the Bible, Tryphena appears in one of Paul's epistles to the Romans.

George and Tryphena had 14 children, all of whom survived infancy:

In 1891, living in Paradise Row, Chard Street, Axminster, were George Loud (30) General Labourer, Tryphena Loud (27) Brushmaker, William Loud (8), Alice M Loud (7), Edward Loud (5), Annie Loud (2) and Eva M Loud (0).

In 1901, in Castle Street, Axminster, we find George A Loud (39), Tryphena (36), William (18), Alice M (16), Edward (15), Annie (11), Eva M (10), Frederick (8), Walter G (6), Thomas (4), Sydney (2) and Bertie (1).

The Exeter and Plymouth Gazette of 19 July 1907, reported that: "The Axminster Justices had imposed a fine of 10s and costs on a labourer, named George Loud, for making use of bad language. There were several previous convictions against the defendant." (Court would be even busier today.)

And The Western Times of 22 September 1909: "George Loud, labourer, Axminster, was summoned for using obscene language. PC Ridgeway stated the facts, and defendant, who did not appear, was fined £1 and costs." 

In 1911, in Castle Hill, Axminster, were George Loud (51), Tryphena (48), William (28), Annie (21), Eva May (20), Frederick (18) Milk Carrier, Walter George (16), Thomas (14), Sydney (12), Bert (11), Elsie Mary (9), George Alfred (8), Ellen Minnie (6) and Edith May (4). Annie, Eva May, Walter George and Thomas worked at the Brush Factory. (Brush Making in Axminster). Alice Maud Loud had married Herbert Edmund Davey in 1906: they were living in Chelsea, London. Edward Loud (25), in 1911, was a boarder in Teffont Magna, Wiltshire. In 1917, he married his landlady, Sarah Brockway.

In late 1880 it was reported that James Boon had “… let a portion of his mills at the bottom of Castle Hill to Messrs Coate, Bidwell & Co, tooth brush manufacturers of Chard and London”. It was estimated at the time that about 200 persons were likely to be employed in Axminster as a consequence.

In 1921, listed as George Albert Loud (62) General Labourer was living at 9, Stoney Bridges (on Castle Hill), Axminster Hamlets, Devon, with Tryphena Loud (58), Annie Loud (31) working for Bidwell & Co; Fred Loud (28) Mason's Labourer; Sydney Loud (21) General Labourer; Bert Loud (20), Elsie Loud (19), George Loud (18) Labourer; Ellen Loud (16) Laundry Hand; Edith May Loud (14), Percy Loud (3) Grandson and Lilian Loud (1) Granddaughter.

George Alfred Loud died, aged 64 and was buried on 3 Nov 1923 at Axminster Cemetery

Tryphena Loud died on 26 Jul 1933, aged 69.
