Event Date Place Description Notes Sources
Birth 1880 Tring, Berkhamstead Registration District, Hertfordshire, England "Amelia" - 1881 Census
Event Note

1881 Census  of England:
Gurney: James 34, Emma 28, and Amelia 1,  living at Lower Dunsley St, Tring, Herts, all born in Tring.
James is a General Labourer, Emma a Straw Plaiter. This is consistent with later Censuses. In addition Edward T Gurney 16, General Labourer, is living there as "Nephew".
The dwelling is a semi-detached [my term] as it shares a wall with the neighbors: Henry 57 and Anna 46 Bain/d. He is a Chelsea Pensioner and General Labourer born Cathargh (?) Yorkshire, and she in Tring.

[No mention of Amelia in family records - died young? Actually Hannah/Annie?]

Files: 1891EnglandCensusFor JamesGurney.jpg and 1891EnglandCensusForGeorgeGurney.jpg.

Note: An overseas researcher, Julie Simmons, with Gurney family links say that Ballards Building was “One of the worst slums in the town, over crowded.” and resultingly unhealthy. When we see that James and Emma have six lodgers it lends weight to the suggestion.
