Elizabeth Illenden Pearce


Edward Huggett Dyason was born in Ramsgate to Isaac and Elizabeth Dyason. He had six brothers and six sisters.

The family lived in Bath Place, Ramsgate in 1851, where Father Isaac was a Bather.

All eight of their then children were Scholars, with an added note ‘Educated at Home’. The eldest son Isaac Edward was by then in Australia. Isaac senior’s single sister Frances was part of the household.

In the 1861 census, living in Bath House, Ramsgate were Elizabeth and Isaac with 7 of their children. Frederick was a Clerk in the London Custom House, and Edward a Receiver General. Sister Frances Dyason was living with them, another sister, and one General Servant.

By 1871, Elizabeth had moved to Croydon with single daughter Elizabeth, sons Frederick and Edward, Customs Clerks, and son Charles, a Stationery Office Clerk. They had one General Servant.

There was another move, to Sevenoaks, by 1881. Elizabeth shared the house with her son Edward, Head of Household, Clerk, HM Customs, daughter Frances, and Servant, Mary Wood, from Kent.

From correspondence between Elizabeth and son Isaac in Australia, it is clear that Edward was in generally poor health, not improved by having influenza in the 1890s. At the same time his office was broken up, – something to do with the end of the duty on tea – and he left on a very small income. Having to pay for medical treatment for him was a strain on the family’s income. There were also ‘black fogs’ in London, which was not good for his health. It was one of the reasons the family moved to Worthing. They were not a wealthy family either, having to give up a house that they had lived in for years, and go into lodgings.

In 1891, Edward and sister Frances were living together in Sea Field, Rustington. (Off Sea Lane, Rustington.) He was described as a ‘Retired Upper Division Clerk, with H.M. Customs.’’ Frances was living on her own means.

Mother Elizabeth had moved to Worthing by 1901. Living on her own means, at Monkton, Mill Road with single daughter Frances, 67, also living on her own means, son Edward Huggett, 57, retired Customs Officer, and one Servant, Emily Scardifield from Westhampnett, aged 26.

After Elizabeth’s death on 27th March 1906, at Monkton, probate was granted to Frederick Dyason, retired Civil Servant.

In the 1911 census, Frances was Head of House at the Poplars, Mill Road, with brother Edward, Retired Civil Servant, and Servant Emily Scardifield.

Edward died in July that year. His address was Monkton, Mill Road, but he died at Milverton, Mill Road. He gave Probate to his brother Frederick, and he left almost £2,700.

Edward was buried in Heene Cemetery, as was his mother in 1906, and his brother Charles, in 1905.
