The Family of Cyrus “Worcester” LAWRENCE


            This Cyrus was christened at Wellesbourne, Warwickshire on 5th November 1795.


            On 26th August 1826 he married Sarah LAWRENCE at Whittington, Worcester.


            Cyrus died on 29th January 1887 in St Oswald’s Hospital, Whitstone1, Worcester.


            According to the 1841 Census they were living in St John in Bedwardine, Worcester. They had four children – Cyrus, Emma, Elina and Henry. Also in the household is James LAWRENCE.


            1] Cyrus later married and moved to Malvern. Details can be found at The Family of Cyrus “Malvern” Lawrence.


            2] Emma Sarah married William Thomas MATTHEWS of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire on 8th December 1859. They had three children – Edward, Alfred Augustus and Emma Sarah Jane. In 1871 Emma and her children are living with her father in St Johns. In 1881 only Emma and her children Alfred and Emma are listed still in St Johns. I believe Edward died in 1874. Alfred married Clara JACKSON on 24th August 1894. I can find no other records of Emma Sarah Jane at the moment.


            3] Elina had married in January 1861, then calling herself Helena, to William BACON of Rednal, Staffordshire. I have found them in Shelfield, Walsall Wood, Staffordshire in 1861. Incidentally, on the 1861 Census a Sarah LAWRENCE, of the right age and birthplace, is listed, perhaps explaining why her mother is not shown in St Johns that year. In 1871 they are still in Shelfield with a daughter Helena S. In 1881 only the two Helenas are listed. The 1891 Census shows only Helena BACON and her niece Juliana E LAWRENCE, living in Shelfield. In 1901 Helena is living with her daughter and son in law Frank HARRISON in Walsall Road, Aldridge, Staffordshire.


            4] I have found a Henry LAWRENCE of the right age and birthplace living in Hylton Road, Worcester, married to Eliza. In 1891 he is a widower lodging in St Clements in the city and apparently died in 1911.



¹ Whitstone is the part of Worcester, between the City and Barbourne (properly known as The Tything of Whitstone).
