GEORGE JAMES HUDSON (bef. 1827 - aft. 1860)
George James Hudson married Mary Dorothy Mumbray, and had at least one child, a son Albert Henry (known by his second name) born in 1842. The family’s address at the time was 9 Red Lion Street, Kingsland Road in Shoreditch; George was a ‘brass turner’. He was working as a ‘lock maker’ at the time of Henry’s marriage in Shoreditch in 1861. Nothing further is yet known of him.
THE CHILDREN OF GEORGE HUDSON (bef. 1827 - aft. 1860)
George’s son Albert Henry (known as ‘Henry’) was born at 9 Red Lion Street, Kingsland Road in Shoreditch on 5 December 1842. On 6 October 1861 he married Elizabeth Flight, still in Shoreditch; at the time they were living in Leonard Street, at numbers ten and sixteen respectively. The couple seem to have had at least eight children – Henry born in 1862/3, Elizabeth in 1864/5, Alice in 1865/6, Matilda in 1867/8, Walter in 1869/70, Arthur in 1871/2, Charles in 1874 and Julia. In 1881 the family were living at 25 Upper John Street in Hoxton: Charles was working as a brass-finisher. He died, it seems, in 1886.

He married young, but his wife soon died, and on 1 August 1897, still in Shoreditch, he married Ada Negus (born in Shoreditch in about 1878, to James Negus, a ‘washer’), with whom he had at least six children: Ada, born in about 1898, Charles in about 1900, Richard Henry in 1902, Albert William in 1904, Henry in about 1908 and Elsie M in 1910.
