Winifred Helena Bridle

RMS Victorian in a 1904 magazine illustration

Winifred Helena Bridle, sixth child, daughter of Edwin Symons Bridle and Lucy Lindsey, at the age of 20 in 1911, was employed as a General domestic servant to the family of Edward Butcher Adams, Accountant, at 129 Pathfield Road, Streatham Common. In Nov 1920, aged 30, Winifred Helena Bridle, Nurse, sailed on the RMS Victorian to Quebec, Canada, bound for WinnipegManitoba. [As yet] I've been unable to discover if she settled there, or perhaps married.

Samuel Pascoe Gloyne and Emma Jane Coombes married in East Stonehouse in the 2nd quarter of 1851. At the time of the 1851 Census, Samuel Gloyne (22) Merchant Sailor, had been lodging with John Coombes (55) Widower, a Scavenger (a scavenger, as a job in Victorian times, was a dustman or street cleaner), his unmarried daughter, Emma Coombes (21) and John Coombes (2) (b. 1848 J Quarter in PLYMOUTH Volume 09 Page 392, Emma's illegitimate son), Grandson at 10, Lower Lane, Saint Andrew, Plymouth. 

A record from 1853 lists Samuel Gloyne (b. 1828) as a Merchant Seaman.

Samuel and Emma Gloyne went on to have at least seven further children together, with Charlotte, Emma and Samuel baptised, on 1 Sep 1861, at Charles Church, Plymouth, their address given as Gasking Street and Samuel Pascoe Gloyne's profession given as Seaman:

  3. Emma Jane Gloyne b. 28 Jul 1858, 1858 S Quarter in PLYMOUTH Volume 05B Page 211
  4. Samuel Richard Pascoe Gloyne b. 14 Aug 1861, S Quarter in PLYMOUTH Volume 05B Page 235. Died, 1862 J Quarter in PLYMOUTH Volume 05B Page 174 and was buried at Ford Park Cemetery, Plymouth.

  6. Bessie Emma Gloyne b. 1865 D Quarter in PLYMOUTH Volume 05B  Page 237, died 1865 D Quarter in PLYMOUTH Volume 05B Page 177 and buried at Ford Park Cemetery, Plymouth.
  7. Rosina Ann Gloyne b. 1865 D Qtr in PLYMOUTH Volume 05B Page 237
It is clear from the dates that Bessie Emma and Rosina Ann were twins.

In 1861, Samuel was away, presumably at sea, while Emma Gloyn (sic) Mariner's Wife, was living at 1, Gasking Street, Charles, Plymouth. John (13) was then listed as John Gloyn, rather than Coombes and had become a Rope Maker's Assistant. With them were Charlotte (6) Scholar, and Emma J (2).

In 1863, the England & Wales Merchant Navy Crew Lists, lists Samuel Gloyne (35) as Able seaman, of the 108 ton vessel, Gipsey, owned by John Bayley, Merchant from Plymouth, under master John Searle of Guildford Street, Plymouth. Samuel Gloyne had joined the vessel on 1 Jul 1863.

In 1871, daughter, Emma Gloyn (12) was a Servant in the household of Dorothy Clatworthy (69) Annuitant. Jane Pascoe (14) was a visitor.

In 1881, Emma Gloyn (52) Formerly Nurse, listed as Wife, Married, was lodging at 37, North Street, Plymouth, along with her daughter Maria Gloyn (17) General Servant (Out of Employment). At that time, daughter Emma Gloyne (22) was employed as a Housemaid to Ship Agent, William T Weekes at 5, Lipson Terrace, Plymouth; while Rose Gloyne (15) was employed as a Domestic Servant in the household of John Foot, Tailors Cutter from the City of London, at 8, Ann's Place, Devonport

By 1891, Emma Gloyn (60) Nurse, Widow, was lodging in Mildmay Street, Plymouth, so clearly Samuel had died in the previous decade. 

In 1901, Emma Gloyne (74), Widowed, Retired Monthly Nurse, was living with her son-in-law, Edward Oxford Palmer and daughter Charlotte Palmer in Alexandra Road, Devonport. Emma Gloyne died, aged 76, in Devonport (1907 M Quarter in DEVONPORT Volume 05B Page 284).
