High Roding is very much a linear settlement with very little development
back from The Street - which follows the line of a Roman Road.

Charles Young, son of Isaac Young and Emma Holgate, married Sarah Charlotte Hockley, eldest daughter of William Hockley and Charlotte Cock, at St Mary the Virgin, Great Dunmow, in 1890. Banns of Marriage between CHARLES YOUNG of the Parish of High Roding, Bachelor and SARAH CHARLOTTE HOCKLEY of this Parish, Spinster, were read in the Oct / Nov of that year.

Sarah Charlotte Hockley had an illegitimate child, Alice Jane Hockley b. 1879 M Quarter in DUNMOW Volume 04A Page 472, bap. 14 Sep 1879 at St Mary the Virgin - the baptism confirms Sarah was her mother. In 1881, Alice was staying with her grandparents, while Sarah C Hockley (20) was working as a Domestic Servant in the household of Amelia Hockley (32) widow, Lodging house keeper at Hockerill, Bishop Stortford, Hertfordshire. Alice Jane died, aged 8, in 1887 J Quarter in DUNMOW Vol 04A Page 314 and was buried on 7 May 1887.

Charles and Sarah Charlotte Young added three children:

  1. Alice Annie Young b. 1891 S Quarter in DUNMOW Volume 04A Page 649
  2. Arthur William Young b. 1894 M Quarter in DUNMOW Vol 04A Page 703
  3. Charles Montague Young b. 6 Jun 1897, reg. 1897 S Quarter in DUNMOW Volume 04A Page 741

In 1891, Charles Young (33) Agricultural Labourer and Sarah Charlotte Young (31), were living with Charles' widowed father, Isaac Young (68) and sister Lois Annie Young (26) - named Lois after Isaac's mother - in High Roding, Essex.

In 1901, Charles Young (42) Horse Keeper on Farm, Sarah Young (40), Alice (9), Arthur (7) and Charles (3) were living at Brands Farm, Great Dunmow.

In 1911, Charles Young (51) Horseman on Farm, Sarah Young (50), Arthur Young (17) also employed as a Horseman on Farm and Charles Young (13) General Labourer on Farm, were living at Brands Farm, Great Dunmow. Brands Farm, Ongar Road, DunmowBrands Farm House dates from the early 16th century and is Grade II* Listed. Alice Annie Young (19), meanwhile, was a Domestic Servant in the household of Harry Gowlett (53) Farmer at The HallGreat Canfield. (The History of Great Canfield mentions The Hall.)

  • Alice Annie Young married Harry Crow in Dunmow, in 1915.
  • Charles M Young married Ethel L Owers in Dunmow, in 1918.

Charles and Sarah Charlotte Young were still in Great Dunmow in 1921.

Charles Hoile Baker (b. 23 Aug 1825, bap. 9 Oct 1825 at St Leonard's Church, Shoreditch), son of Charles Baker and Sarah Hoile, married Amelia Young (b. 6 May 1823, bap. 14 Sep 1823 at Southwark St Saviour), daughter of Richard and Sarah Young, at St John's Church, Waterloo (interior image) a..k.a. Lambeth St John the Evangelist, Surrey in the first quarter of 1847.

Charles and Amelia Baker, it would appear, had six children:
  1. Charles Richard Baker b. 1848 M Quarter in THE SHOREDITCH DISTRICT Volume 02 Page 399, bap. 4 Jun 1848 at St Leonard's Church, Shoreditch

In 1851, living in Kingsgate Street, Holborn (celebrated by Dickens as the address of Mrs. Gamp's Lodging) were Charles Hoile Baker (25) Plumber, Amelia Baker (27), Charles Richard Baker (3), Frederick Hoile Baker (1) and Eliza Sandall (19) Dressmaker, who I can only assume was lodging with them.

By 1861, they were living in Cowley Street, St George-In-The-East (which ran north-south just east of Shadwell Station). The household comprised: Charles Baker (39) Mechanic Plumber, Amelia Baker (40), Charles Baker (13), Sarah Baker (9), Amelia Baker (7) and Sophia Baker (2). Not yet located Frederick.

Once more in Cowley Street, St George in the East in 1871 were Charles H Baker (45), Amelia Baker (47), Sarah J Baker (20), Amelia Baker (17), Sophia Baker (13) and Ellen Baker (4). (Charles Richard had married in 1867.)

And in 1881, address now specific to 75, Cowley Street, St George in the East, were Charles Baker (54) Plumber, Amelia Baker (58) and Ellen Baker (14).

Amelia Baker died, aged 61, in 1883 M Quarter in ST GEORGE IN THE EAST Volume 01C Page 300. 

Charles Hoile Baker died on 20 Sep 1883 at 75, Cowley St, Stepney. (1883 S Quarter in ST GEORGE IN THE EAST Volume 01C Page 283).
