George (1) Hogger was born to parents Samuel (1) Hogger and his wife Susanna (nee) Farthing. He was christened on March 25th 1821 at Brent Eleigh [PR: Cosford DB].
The 1841 Census finds him at age "20" living in the household of a blacksmith Berechiah Underwood in Sparrow Lane, St. Mary the Great in Cambridge where he too was occupied as a blacksmith.
In 1844 he married Susan Sayer [Marriage Index: Cambridge 14 13, 1844 (Dec)]. She was born around 1820-21 in Cambridge.
The 1851 Census finds him at age "30" living with Susan and three children in the household of Susan's widowed mother Mary at Willemott's Yard, Bridge Street in St. Clement, Cambridge where he was occupied as a whitesmith. Also present was his own mother Susannah (entered as "Susan") who was occupied as a servant. Their surname is entered as "Hogarth".
The 1861 Census finds him at age "40" living with Susan and four children at Warren's Yard in St. Clement, Cambridge where he was occupied as a blacksmith. Also present was Susan's unmarried younger brother James Sayer.
In 1862 Susan died [Death Index: Cambridge 3b 335, 1862 (March)].
In 1864 George (1) remarried to Eliza (nee?) Stamford [Marriage Index: Cambridge 3b 1152, 1864 (Dec)]. It is not yet known whether Stamford was her maiden surname. She was born in Cambridge around 1822-23.
The 1871 Census finds George (1) with Eliza and his son Frederick Robert (1) living at 9, Black Moor Head Yard in St. Clement, Cambridge where he was occupied as a whitesmith.
The 1881 Census finds him widowed and living with his unmarried daughter Harriet (3) at 2, Hobbs Passage in St. Clement, Cambridge where he was occupied as a smith.
The 1891 Census finds him at age "69" lodging in the household of a widow named S.P. Lawrence at 3, King's Court in Holy Trinity, Cambridge. He was now occupied as a publican.
The 1901 Census finds him at age "79" as an inmate of Cambridge Workhouse and described as a retired blacksmith. His birthplace is wrongly given - probably by a misreading of the workhouse register - as Bury St. Edmunds.
He died aged "81" in 1902 [Death Index: Cambridge 3b 234, 1902 (Sept)].
Harriet (3) was christened as "Harriet Hoggar" at St. Clement, Cambridge on June 16th 1848 [IGI: Batch C135604]. The 1851 and 1861 Censuses find her living with her parents in Cambridge. The 1871 Census finds her at age "22" and unmarried living at 1, Fitzwilliam Street, Cambridge in the household of an Edwin Holden, where she was occupied as a domestic servant. Her birthplace is given as St. Clement, Cambridge. The 1881 Census finds her living with her father at St. Clement, her age entered unclearly as (perhaps) "29". She was occupied as a housekeeper. In 1881 she married a widower William "Makins" Tuck [Marriage Index: Cambridge 3b 799, 1881 (Sept) - indexed as "Makins"]. He was born around late 1839 at Gressenhall in Norfolk to parents William Tuck and Mary (nee) "Makens", and his GRO reference is probably [Birth Index: Mitford 13 203, 1839 (Dec)]. The 1861 Census finds him living with his parents at the Water Mill, Gressenhall where he was occupied as a bricklayer. He first married in 1865 at Chesterton in Cambridgeshire to Elizabeth Unwin [Marriage Index: Chesterton 3b 1125, 1865 (Dec)]. The 1871 Census finds them living with three children, together with William's unmarried sister Mary, in the High Street, Chesterton where he was again occupied as a bricklayer. Elizabeth died aged "37" in 1880 [Death Index: Chesterton 3b 306, 1880 (Dec)], apparently at the same time as an infant daughter also named Elizabeth bearing the same GRO death reference. The 1881 Census finds William widowed and living with seven children in Springfield Road, Chesterton where he was again occupied as a bricklayer. After he and Harriet (3) married later that year, they probably produced a son Frederick who died in infancy [Death Index: Cambridge 3b 266, 1882 (Sept) - indexed as "Tuckmakins"]. It is suspected that Harriet (3) either died in 1882 - although no GRO reference has yet been found to confirm this - or separated from William. Whichever the case, he remarried in 1883 to Clara Maud Hart [Marriage Index: Chesterton 3b 674, 1883 (Dec) - indexed as "Makins"]. No subsequent trace of him, his children or Clara has been found in any source, whilst the fate of Harriet (3) also remains undetermined. William and Clara probably emigrated - an unattributed LDS patron submission record refers to them and states that William died in about 1898 in South Australia.
The 1861 Census finds William Samuel (2) at age "11" living with his parents in Cambridge. The 1871 Census finds him at age "20" and unmarried, boarding at 5, Malcolm Place, Holy Trinity, Cambridge in the household of a widow Isabella Jiggins and occupied as a messenger. In 1874 he married Lois Laura Sallis [Marriage Index: Ely 3b 971, 1874 (June)]. She was born in Ely, Cambridgeshire in 1852 [Birth Index: Ely 3b 515, 1852 (Dec)]. The 1881 Census finds them, with no children, living at 21, Effingham Street, St. George Hanover Square in London. He was occupied as a mason's labourer and she as a mantle maker. The 1891 Census finds them living, again with no children, at 77, Westmoreland Street, St. George Hanover Square. He was still occupied as a mason's labourer and she as a dressmaker. The 1901 Census finds them again in Westmoreland Street, but now at No. 97, and again with no children. He was now occupied as a saw mill labourer. Evidently he later returned to Cambridgeshire, dying there in 1917 aged "65" [Death Index: Ely 3b 781, 1917 (March)]. Lois Laura died ten years later aged "74" [Death Index: Ely 3b 806, 1927 (March)].
