    • [1891 British Census; family aural history from Lucille Benjestorf Roddy & Herb & Betty Ainsworth] [Capel Parish Baptisms]


      Ann CHEESEMAN was born ca February, 1868, in Capel, Surrey. Her parents residence was Pikefield. She was baptized in St. John the Baptist Church in Capel on Easter Sunday,12 April, 1868.
      Aunt Nan appeared as a 23 year old on the 1891 census. In 1881 she worked as a domestic servant for the Thomas Loxley family, a farmer who lived in Capel House.
      Ann was employed as a Domestic Kitchen Maid.
      In 1891 a Railway Porter, George HARRIS, was a lodger with the Cheeseman's next door neighbor, the widow, Annie Hoad. On 27 January, 1892, Aunt Nan & George Cromwell HARRIS married in St. John the Baptist Church in Capel. George was a "signalman" with the railroad. Aunt Nan was a "Domestic Servant". Ann's father was a laborer. Witnesses were Jesse Liperton (?) & Mary Cheesman [Ann's sister].
      George & Ann had a daughter, Kathleen HARRIS, who was probably born around 1894. She died when she was about 18 months old and George & Ann adopted a baby girl whom they called Lilly HARRIS shortly afterward.
      In 1904 the Harris's moved to Canada, settling for a couple of years in Goodeve, near Melville, Saskatchewan. They then moved to Bangor, Maine, where they lived for several years before returning to Canada. They eventually settled in British Columbia around 1930.
