  • Notes 
    • Thomas William Short was a Silk Weaver.

      In the 1851 census of Bethnal Green, we find Thomas William Short listed as Thomas Short, age 48, silk weaver born Middlesex, Bethnal Green. With Thomas are: Sarah 42, a laundress, supposedly also born in Middlesex, Bethnal Green; William 23, a silk weaver; Sarah 14, also a silk weaver; Edward 11; John 8; and Alfred 4. The presence of the older son William here ties the families of Thomas William Short together. William was a son of Sophia Ashby, Thomas’ first wife. The son Alfred does not appear in the baptism records of St. Matthews. The daughter Joanna does not appear here. Perhaps she died. On the other hand , since she was baptised at Shoreditch St Leonards, maybe she doesn’t belong with this family at all.

      In the 1881 census, we find a Thomas Short 74, silk weaver, born in Bethnal Green, living at 6 Derbyshire St in Bethnal Green with a wife Lucy Short 69, also a silk weaver born in Bethnal Green. At this time Sarah Moffatt Short was living as an annuitant in Portsea with her son Francis Richard Short. [2, 4]
