Biography

Amass was born on the 27th of August and baptised at Debenham on the 5th of September 1812. He was the son of William Gooding and Elizabeth Amas.[1]

Amass married Mary Knight at St Mary Magdalene, Debenham on the 19th of February 1836.[2]

Amass was living with his wife and children at Debenham on the 1841 census. Also with them was Mary's mother, Mary Knights.[3]

The 1851 census has him living with his wife and children at Debenham, (However his wife's name has been recorded as Jane. This may be an enumerator mistake and his first daughter Jane was accidentally written in the wife spot - Mary did not die until 1855 and Mary's mother is still living with them at the time and recorded as mother in law.)[4]

By 1861, Amass was a widower. Living with him on the 1861 census were three of his children, Amass, Rebecca and James.[5]

In the 1871 census, Amass was recorded living alone on Main Street, Debenham.[6]

Amass was living on 'The Row' Debenham in the 1881 census. He was now recorded as a master tailor.[7]

In the 1891 census, Amass, now 78 was living on Church Street, Debenham.[8]

Amass died on the 9th of February 1898. He was buried in St Mary Magdalene Churchyard in Debenham.[9] [10]
