Edgar Aldous (1842 - 1917) - our Northern Start Point

Edgar ALDOUS was born to Henry and Sarah in Worlingworth Suffolk on 1st October 1842, and was christened on the 30th October 1842. He came north to Tintwistle along with his parents. He eventually met and married Mary MARSHALL in 1869 in Hadfield, Cheshire 1870. Mary had been born in Tintwistle in 1844.

Edgar and Mary had six children; the eldest was called William Henry born in 1872. The second child was Joseph born on 1875. Followed by Thomas born on 26th July 1877 then by Sarah Jane in 1880, Frank in 1882 and finally Annie born in 1883.  Edgar was described as a ‘House Painters Labourer’ on the 1901 census, and just as a Labourer on Sarah Jane’s marriage certificate a few months later the same year.  

Although Henry was responsible for bringing the family north, and Edgar was not actually born in the north, never the less Edgar was responsible for establishing our family line in the north with his own offspring. 

Living at New Street Tintwistle in Cheshire at the time of the birth of William Henry, Joseph and Thomas, the family had moved to 50 Post Street, Glossop Dale in Derbyshire when Sarah Jane and Frank and probably Annie were born. The family (except for William Henry) had moved again by the time of the 1901 census and were living in South Yorkshire at 17 Haywood Park, Deepcar, now believed to be known as 17 Marsh Street. The whole estate of five rows of terrace houses is known as Haywood Park, but each row of houses now has its own street name.

Edgar would appear to have had a variety of jobs in his lifetime; the earliest one we have knowledge of was of him being described on a copy of Thomas’s birth certificate as a ‘Self Actor (should have read Acting) Minder’ which is a person in charge of the automatic spinning mule in the cotton mills, and was still employed as a Cotton Spinner at the 1881 census. He was described as a ‘House Painters Labourer’ on the 1901 census, and just as a Labourer on Sarah Jane’s marriage certificate a few months later the same year.

Edgar died in 1917 in Wortley, Sheffield
