Story

Amelia was born in Lewisham, the daughter of Henry Constable Roberts and his wife Amelia. She was baptised at Hatcham St James, Lewisham on 22 Mar 1855. Henry was a wholesale druggist. Amelia had 9 siblings and the family was wealthy enough to afford a governess for the children. In 1887, Amelia married Rev. Frederick Ernest White at St Peter, Croydon on 5 Sep. The couple had no children but dedicated their lives to their congregation at St Stephen, Dulwich. When her husband retired in 1915, Amelia was presented with a chased gold watch. Frederick died in a nursing home in Worthing in 1929 and Amelia stayed on in the town, living at 10 Winchester Road. This was a rest home run by a Miss Sales. Amelia died at 5 Church Walk, the home of Mrs Emma Drose on 9 Feb 1939. Probate was granted on 22 Mar to Sydney Densham company director. Effects £1643 16s 9d (approx. £65K in 2020).
