Bertha Helen Lupton, 1859

Occupation

Bertha Helen Lupton was mistakenly listed by the innumerator as Bertha E Lupton. Perhaps the inumerator misheard her if she dropped her 'H' when she said 'Helen'.

Note

Biography

Bertha Helen Lupton was born about 1859.

She married Arthur Underwood at Pancras, London in 1898. They had at least one child:

  1. Dorothy Underwood, born a few years earlier at Hereford in 1893.

On the 1901 UK Census she is listed as being aged 36 rather than her real age of 42. It was convention for wives to be younger than husbands, and if older, only a little older. This probably caused her to lie about their larger age difference.

After her husband Arthur Underwood died in 1906, Bertha Helen Underwood (nee Upton) appears to have remarried in her maiden name in 1908 (see below 'Future Research' note).
