In 1891 Emma Austin was a widow, aged 51, a Boot & Shoe Dealer, born Yoxford, Suffolk. Living with her were Florence, daughter., aged 24, Assistant, born Worthing, William P, son, aged 15, Butcher’s Assistant, born Worthing and Mary Ann, daughter., aged 12, Scholar, born Worthing. Their address was 39, Montague Street, Broadwater, Worthing. (Note the change of address, it’s only the number). George was not present.
