  • Name James MALLETT  [1
    Born 10 Oct 1843  Tolleshunt Knights, Essex, England Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5
    • James was actually born in Tiptree, Essex, but the birth was registered in Tolleshunt Knights, about 2 miles distant. In the 1901 Canadian Census, James gave his birthdate as Oct 10, 1848, but his birth was registered in England in the December quarter of 1843, and he gave his age pretty consistently over the years translating to a birth year of 1844, so Oct 10 is taken to be correct, and the birth year of 1843 is taken to be correct. This date was confirmed by his death certificate.

    • James and Helen had no children (enumerated in the census). They were living in the same house as John and Elizabeth Bristow who were both born in England as James and Helen were, so perhaps the two couples were in some way related, or at least known to one another. Annie (35) and Mary E (28) Rice were also living with them, likely Helen's sisters.

    • Under the category of Religion, James described himself as a "Free Thinker". His wife Helen and his oldest son Alfred were Church of England, while the rest of the children were Methodist. There must have been some interesting discussions around the dinner table.
