    NEWSPAPER REPORTS OF THE DROWNING
    OF ELIZA AND EMMA
    From the CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS 30th September 1854
    SOMERSHAM. - Distressing Occurrence. - Two little girls, of the respective ages of two and five years, daughters of William WHEATON, living at a water-mill on the bank of the Twenty-feet river, which divides the fens of Warboys and Somersham, were drowned on Tuesday last. They had crossed the river with two elder children, who were sent to glean, and during the afternoon left their companions unobserved; and it is supposed that in attempting to recross, both fell into the stream. The mother was at work in the mill, within a few yards of the spot, unconscious of the circumstance, until apprised by a booby fellow, who, seeing a child struggling in the water, ran to tell the woman. Had he rendered immediate assistance the probability is that one life might have been saved; but the short interval which elapsed between seeing and doing completed the sad catastrophe. An inquest was held on Wednesday, Verdict, "Accidental Death"
    From the CAMBRIDGE CHRONICLE 30th September 1854
    SOMERSHAM. - Two Children Drowned. - An inquest was held on Wednesday last, the 27th inst., before C MARGETTS, Es., coroner for the Hundred of Hurstingstone, at the Water Engine, Somersham Fen, on the bodies of Eliza WHEATON, aged 5 years, and Emma WHEATON, age 2 years, children of Wm WHEATON and Ann his wife, who live in the said mill. These children were suffered to cross by a dangerous plank the twenty-foot river, and in consequence fell in and both perished. The jury, after a patient investigation, returned a verdict of accidental death. The first witness examined was William NORMAN, shepherd to Mr Thomas EKINS, who saw one child in the water; and the man actually ran into the mill and told the child's mother instead of getting the child out; and then ran across another field to fetch a man to get it out. The father of the children being some distance off at work and hearing the screams of the mother, ran and got them both out, but too late to save either of them. The man NORMAN received a justly-merited rebuke and caution from the worthy coroner.

    1901 Census - 35 Orient Street, London Road, St George the Martyr, Southwark, London - I spent some time searching for Eliza HOY and had given up when I decided that she might be known as Elizabeth, and there she was, the correct age, born in Somersham, with a Charles HOY also born in 1865 which is what we had, so I am fairly confident it is the correct person. Details for Eliza and Charles have been added to the Chart above, they had two children on the 1901 Census - William C HOY son, aged 4, born Pimlico, London and Arthur W HOY, aged 3 months, born Southwark, London

The idea of these charts is to give the information that we have found in the research we have done and put together and with the help of many other people who have contacted us over the past thirty odd years we have been researching our family. The idea is that you click on the Chart box in blue to be taken to the next family. There is now a large number of charts to be found and connections can be made to all the main families I am researching. If a chart has a box with the standard background it means that as yet I have not put the Chart on the Web.
To conform to the Data Protection Act all the Charts have been altered to exclude all details for living people other than the name.
