Brief biography

Alfred (2) Hogger was born to parents Robert (2) Hogger and his wife Charlotte (nee) Bradley, and was christened on September 6th 1863 at Brent Eleigh [PR: Cosford DB].

The 1871 Census finds him at age "7" living with his parents in Brent Eleigh.

The 1881 Census finds him at age "17" living with his parents at Head Street Cottages in Brent Eleigh.

His future wife was Angelina (nee) Long; she was the daughter of Job Long and his wife Mary Ann (nee) Bigg and was christened on February 7th 1864 at Lavenham [Cosford DB]. The 1881 Census finds her as "Annie" at age "16" living at 44, Emperor's Gate in St. Mary Abbott, Kensington in London in the household of a retired Major General Alfred Light. She was employed there as a housemaid, as also was her sister Lavinia Long aged "22"; both sisters gave their birthplace as Lavenham.

He married Angelina on December 23rd 1890 at the Congregational Church in Monks Eleigh [Marriage Index: Cosford 4a 1259, 1890 (Dec)]. The marriage record describes him as a gardener [Cosford DB].

He has not yet been found in the 1891 Census. By then he was probably in Surrey where his first child was born later that year.

The 1901 Census finds him at age "37" living in the Gardener's Lodge at 10, Lansdowne Road in North Wimbledon where he was occupied as a domestic gardener. Angelina was meanwhile visiting his parents, accompanied by her child, at Brent Eleigh.

It is not known where or when he or his wife died.
