Frith Generation 2

Thomas Frith II

Born about 1801, Hinkley, Leicestershire. Christened 25 Jan 1802 at St. Mary, Hinckley.

Married Hannah Garrot (1802-1884) on 12 May 1823 at St. Mary, Hinckley.

The family was living on Lower Bond St, Hinckley, at the 1841 census.

By the 1851 census they were living at 68 Priory Row. All the family were either framework knitters or stocking seamers.

At the 1861 census they were still at Priory Row but the youngest son Thomas was missing. He had probably gone to London by then.

Thomas and Hannah, then 70 years old, remained framework knitters at Priory Row in 1871. With them were unmarried son George, unmarried daughter Sarah, and two pre-teen grandsons William and Thomas.

At the 1881 census 80-year-old Thomas and Hannah were still working on the stocking frames at Priory Row. Their son George was also there as a general labourer, and grandson Thomas a shoe finisher.

Hannah died 30 Dec 1884 at Priory Row, with daughter Mary Ann Dowell of Burton on Trent in attendance.

Thomas died 16 Jan 1892 at 1 Ireson's Yard, Hinkley, aged 90 years. In attendance was his daughter Sarah, now named Mrs. Pratt. She lived next door at No. 2.
