Family Tree




Not very much! Like several of the North`s he was an architect and had offices in Basinghall Street, London. He was living in his parents house in 1861 aged 14. At the 1871 census he is found at 99 Bridge Road West aged 24 as an architect and surveyor, living with his wife Agnes aged 26 and Jessie (2) and Mabel (4 months). He then moves to Campion House Harlesdon at the 1881 census living with his wife, Agnes and Jessie (12) Mabel (10) and Vincent (8) with one servant. By 1891 he is back Bridge Street West at number 3 this time, with Agnes, Jessie (22) Scholar, Mabel (20) Scholar, Vincent (18) architectural draughtsman and Dudley H. (9)  However by the 1901 census something has changed (see next paragraph) Agnes is living on her own at 144 High Street Wandsworht, with her children and one grandchild, Jessie Paterson  (nee North widow), Mabel (single) and Dudley Henry North (aged 18) naval architects assistant and Olive AE Patterson (11 months) grand daughter.

Thus a scandal at the end then...his death certificate indicates he died on April 13th 1912, the informant being “Emily North” designated as his widow, not the wife Agnes Susan (Nee Parker) whom he married in 1873. His will shows he left everything to Miss Emily Galehawk !!  At the time he was living at Tring Holme, Claygate, Thames Ditton.
