On February 24th 1885 Alice Rebecca Leming, married Robert Edward Inman, by Licence, in Shoreditch. Both of them were residents of Shoreditch at the time, living at 243 Hackney Road. Alice’s father, William, was a Nursery Gardener in 1885, and she was born in Sedgeley, Staffordshire, in 1858.

William Leming was a Staffordshire man, as was his wife, Eliza nee Banks. Alice was their 3rd child, of five. In 1861, William was a Gardener, and the family was still living in Sedgeley.

In 1871, Alice was living in Wombourne, Staffs, with her Grandfather Joseph Leming, a Gardener ‘unable to work.’

In 1876 Robert had become a Licenciate of the Society of Apothecaries. and in 1877 a Member of the .Royal College of Surgeons. He was also a Fellow of the Obstetrical Society of London.

In 1891, at Gads Hill Villa in Higham, Kent, were Robert, a General Practitioner, with Alice, four daughters and a son, aged between 5 and 1. The 2 oldest girls were 5-year-old twins. Robert’s father James, now widowed, was with them, and one General Servant.

10 years later the family was still there, now with 8 children and a Nursery Maid.

Robert Inman was described as a Medical Officer – Public Vaccinations –  in Higham, in Kelly’s 1903 Directory of Kent.

In 1911, still in Higham, were Robert and Rebecca, with 25-year-old daughter Beatrice, and Medical Student son, Robert James.

Robert was still in Gads Hill Cottage in 1918, according to the 1918 Kelly’s Directory, and in 1923 he was still there.

On the 1924 Register of Electors Robert and Alice were living at 211 Brighton Road, with George and Elizabeth Bateman, presumably as Lodgers?

When Robert died, in June 1927, his address was given as Coseley, 3 Longfellow Road – which was their residence from 1925.

Alice was still living in Longfellow Road when she died in April1937, but she died at Groombridge, Chaucer Road.
