Story

This is another story of the lives of Victorian women who stayed single and ended their days
in Heene.
Home for the sisters in 1851 was Alfred Place, Bedford Square, St Giles-in-the Fields,
Holborn with father Charles, Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Judicature, born in Newcastle
-on-Tyne, and mother Henrietta Mary (nee Tarral), a Canadian. They had a Cook and a
Housemaid.
Henrietta was Charles’ second wife. They were married in 1828, at St Giles-in-the-Fields.
There was an older sister, Emily Ann, born 1833, and a younger brother Henry.
(There were also older brothers George, born in 1829, but died in 1845, and Frederick born
1831, died in 1839.)
Mother Henrietta died in 1852, in Henley-on-Thames, though her address was given as
Alfred Place.
In 1861, still in Alfred Place, Charles, Emily, Henrietta and Henry, had a Cook, Nursemaid
and Housemaid. Sister-in-law Harriet Bromfield, aged 50, was living with them.
In 1871 Henrietta was a Visitor, in Lambeth, with the extensive family of Thomas and
Hannah Ellaby. Brother Henry, then 11, was living with his Aunt, Harriet Bovington, in St
Albans. (I haven’t found where the rest of the family was in 1871.)
Father Charles died in 1874, in Alfred Place, having married for a third time.
In 1881, Sarah and Georgiana, both Schoolmistresses, were living in Victoria Road, with
Frederick Attoar(?) Tutor, and 7 Scholars, aged 12 and 8. They had 2 Domestic Servants.
In October 1884, Henrietta was admitted to the Hampshire County Lunatic Asylum for 2
days, then discharged ‘unimpaired’.
At 2 Heene Villas in 1891, were Henrietta, Sarah, Georgianna and a female Domestic
Servant.
In 1901 Henrietta was living in Marylebone with her Aunt Charlotte Oriel.
Georgiana and Sarah were still at 2 Heene Villas, where they had living with them 3 female
Servants, and a Boarder, Christina Richardson, from St Giles, aged 81.
In 1911 Henrietta was living alone, on her own means, in Hastings.
Sarah was at 2 Heene Villas, Head of Household, with Georgianna listed as a Visitor. There
were also a Cook, Housemaid and Nurse.
When Henrietta died, in 1916, she was ‘of Escallonia, 2 Heene Villas’, as were Georgianna
in 1923, and Sarah in 1930. All three were wealthy women, leaving large sums of money to
their remaining sisters.
