Arthur Underwood, 18691906 (aged 37 years)

Note

Biography

Arthur Underwood was born at Dursley, Gloucestershire, in 1869.

His parents were George William Underwood born at Atworth, Wiltshire in 1819, and Matilda Curtis, born at Bath, Somerset, in 1835, who married at Dursley in 1851 after the death of George’s first wife in 1850.

He married Bertha Helen Lupton at Pancras, London in 1898 and they had at least one child/

  1. Dorothy Underwood who was born at Hereford in 1893.

Arthur Underwood is listed as a one year old son living with his parents on the 1871 UK census.

He is listed as an 11 year old son living with his widowed father on the 1881 UK Census.

By the 1891 UK census both his parents were dead and it is not known where he is listed.

It appears as though he may have been living in Hereford in 1893. Their daughter, Dorothy Underwood, was born there that year although he did not marry Bertha Lupton until 1898 and was then living in London.

By the time of the 1901 UK Census he is a nurseryman living with his wife and daughter at Heene, Sussex.

He died at Ashby de la Zouch in 1906.
