Biography

Flag of Yorkshire (adopted 2008)
Emily (Gyte) Count was born in Yorkshire, England.
This profile is part of the Gyte Name Study.

Emily was born in 1878. Her parents Abraham Gyte and Mary Nuttall.[1][2]

In 1881 and 1891 Emily lived with her parents and sibling in George Street, Wombwell, Yorkshire.[3][4]

In 1894, when she was 16 years old, Emily gave birth to twin daughters, Edith Gyte and Ethel Gyte. The children's birth certificates do not give a name of a father. [5] Sadly both babies died from infantile diarrhoea within a few days of each other the following year when they were 11 months old.[6] The babies were born and died at the family home and were buried in the family's grave in Wombwell Cemetery, Wombwell, Yorkshire..[7]

Emily married George Spencer Count on 17 April 1900 at Barnsley Register Office, Barnsley, Yorkshire.[8][9]

Soon after their marriage Emily gave birth to their first son, Frank Count. Emily became ill after his birth and was admitted to Middlewood Mental Hospital Sheffield on 17 May 1900. The reason for admission was 'Lying In'. Today we would call it Post Natal Depression. She was discharged in December that year as cured. [10]

When the 1901 census was taken Emily was at home with George at 44 George Street, Wombwell, Yorkshire.[11] Frank was with his grandmother, Fanny Count, when census was taken, and he continued to live with her the rest of his life.

George and Emily continued to live at 44 George Street, Wombwell, Yorkshire.[12] This area of Wombwell was known locally as "the square". It consisted of rows of terrace houses which were demolished in the 1950s when a new council estate was built in the town. This area is now a public car park.

Emily and George went on to have another eleven children between 1901 and 1925.

Around 1926 Emily became ill again and spent several years in hospital before she passed away in Storthes Hall Mental Hospital, Huddersfield in 1933, age 55.[13][14] She was buried on 31 March 1933 in Wombwell Cemetery, Wombwell, Yorkshire.[7]
