Answers to challenges
Can you find Emma Brown’s entry in the 1851 census?
Emma was aged 8 and living with her family at White Hard Yard, Chertsey. The full National Archives’ reference for the page is: HO 107/1593 folio 153 page 5.
Kate Wright’s aunt, Harriett Brown, died in April 1913. A short piece was published about her in The Era. Can you find out from this where she was buried?
Harriett was buried at Tooting (Lambeth) Cemetery. The article The Era describes “Auntie” as a “kind old soul” and tells us that she had brought Kate up since she was six months old.
Can you find out what happened to Carl’s oldest daughter, Pauline?
Pauline Kate Elizabeth Theurer was living with her father and step-mother in London at the time of the 1901 census. On 16 December 1911, she married a Belgian, called Joseph Marcus Asserson. They appear to have moved to Paris where their son, Marcus Charles Asserson was born in 1912. Following her husband’s death in 1932, Pauline married for a second time, in Brussels in 1948. Her second husband, Clement Dewandeleer died in Nice in 1961. Pauline survived him by 12 years, eventually dying in Brussels in 1973.
She is not to be confused with Pauline Fredericke Theurer (probably a cousin) who had a very successful career as a vocalist.
