Biography

Flag of Suffolk (adopted 2017)
John Wilden was born in Suffolk, England.

John Wilden's birth was registered in the September Quarter of 1844 in Stow Union, Suffolk, England.[1] He was the son of William Wilden and Sarah Crushels.

In the 1851 Census, 6 year old John was living in Combs, Suffolk, England with his family. His father, William(46), and two older brothers, William(19) and George(14) were agricultural laborers. His mother, Sarah, was keeping house with his widowed grandmother, Phoebe. He and his sister Emma were Sunday Scholars. His oldest sister, Hannah(17), wasn't living at home, but was working at Badley Hall as a house servant.[2][3]

In the 1861 Census, 16 year old John was living with the Durrant family working as a carter.[4]

John married Emma Jessup in the December Quarter of 1864 in Stow, Suffolk, England.[5]

  • John and Emma had 7 children:
  1. Emma Wilden[6]
  2. Rose Wilden[7]
  3. Alice Maria Wilden[8]
  4. Ellen Wilden[9]
  5. Sarah Ann Wilden[10]
  6. Henry Frederick William Wilden[11]
  7. John George Wilden[12]

John lost his parents within a few years of each other. First, his father passed away in the June Quarter of 1868 in Stow, Suffolk, England.[13] His mother followed in the December Quarter of 1870 in Stow, Suffolk, England.[14]

In the 1871 Census, 27 year old John was living in Combs, Suffolk, England with his family. He was working as an agricultural laborer and Emma(26) was keeping house and caring for their 4 young daughters: Emma(6), Rose(4), Alice(3), and Ellen(1). Emma and Alice are deaf and dumb and have been since birth.[15]

In the 1881 Census, John(36) was still working as an agricultural laborer in Combs, Suffolk, England. He and his wife, Emma(36), have had 7 children. Rose(14), Ellen(11), Sarah(8), Henry(5) and John(2) were living at home with their parents. Ellen, Sarah and Henry were attending school and were listed as scholars.[16] Daughters Emma and Alice were living in two different Asylums for the Deaf and Dumb. Emma was living in London at the School on Kent Rd.[17] Alice was in Margate, Kent, England.[18]

In the 1891 Census, John(47) was still working as an agricultural laborer in Combs, Suffolk, England. He and Emma(46) had 4 children living at home. Daughters, Emma(25) and Alice(23) no longer were living at the Deaf School, and had returned home. Son, Henry(15) was working as a groom, and John(11) was a scholar. Emma's mother, Mary Ann Jessup(85), had moved in, and was listed simply as a widow.[19] Their daughter, Rose, was living in London working as a domestic servant in the home of Isaac Levi.[20] Ellen had married Mr. Spencer Scarff in 1899, and had started a family. They were living in Combs, near her family.[21] Sarah was living in St Matthew, Suffolk, England working as a domestic servant in the household of Edward Day.[22]

In the 1901 Census, John was 55 years old and was working as a horseman on a farm. He and Emma(55) had moved their family to Battisford, Suffolk, England. Their daughters Emma(34) and Alice(32) were still living at home, and so was their son John(21). John was working as a farm laborer. John and Emma had a grandson living with them in 1901, Richard Wilden(9). He was listed in the census as a scholar.[23] Richard's parentage is unsure. He was born in 1892, most likely the son of one the John's daughters. His birth registration does not list his mother's maiden name.[24]

John and Emma's daughter Emma passed away in the March Quarter of 1902 in Bosmere, Suffolk, England.[25]

In the 1911 Census, John(66) and Emma(66) have moved to Badley, Suffolk, England. John was still working as a horseman on a farm. Alice(42), John(30), and grandson Richard(19) were still living at home. Young John and Richard were working as farm laborers.[26]

John Wilden passed away in the December Quarter of 1916 in Stow, Suffolk, England.[27] His wife followed him in death in the September Quarter of 1924.[28]
