The family of James and Mary Finn recorded in the 1891 census


The family of James and Mary Finn recorded in the 1891 census at 3 Little Shadwell Street, described as back of 91 Bath Street. The notable thing here is that their oldest daughter Annie Finn aged 28 is back with her parents and has reverted to her maiden name from Ensor. She is described as a brass polisher. James Finn is 52 years old, a bricklayer’s labourer born Ireland. His wife Mary aged 50 also born in Ireland. Two of their sons are also still in the household, Thomas aged 24 and James 21, both brass polishers. Their youngest daughter Mary Jane Finn is absent having married Fred Payne, but there are three male boarders, Matt Finch 46, Michael Fonday 25 and Thomas Welch 42, all three bricklayer’s labourers from Ireland.
