Joseph Henry Austin.


Lavinia Stubbs was born on July 3rd 1864 the first born child of Samuel and Martha Stubbs, who lived in Audley. Lavinia Stubbs is recorded in the 1881 census records as working at Wall Farm in Audley she was a housemaid. After Lavinia and Joseph got married they lived in Mellard Street Wereton, then 13 Booth Street in Audley for the rest of their lives and had ten children.

I am in gratitude to Ian Taylor for providing the details of Lavinia's bible which provides some hand written dates and times for the births of some of the children.
