Frith Family Tree from Leicester to Philadelphia

1 Thomas FRITH
----------------------------------------
Occ: Framesmith (stocking frames).
Reli: Church of England
Priory Row

1851 Census: Whole family described as stocking makers. The widowed Elizabeth aged 70, described as pauper as well as a seamer. They lived at Priory Row and all natives of Hinckley . The old lady was presumably in receipt of parish relief - hence her designation as pauper.

Spouse: Elizabeth YATES
Birth: 1771, Hinkley Leicester England
Death: 1857, Hinkley Leicester England
Marr: 8 Sep 1799, St. Mary's, Hinkley, Leicestershire England

Children: Thomas (1802-1892)
Edward (1810->1890)
Anne (1812-)

1.1 Thomas FRITH
----------------------------------------
Birth: Jan 1802, Hinkley Leicester England
Death: 16 Jan 1892, no 1 Ireson's Yard
Bapt: 25 Jan 1802, at St. Mary, Hinckley
Occ: stocking seamer.

Thomas (ii) married Hannah in 1823 and I've (Hazel FRITH) traced 6 children. The
youngest was Thomas (iii) and I found the whole family on the 1851
cencus - Thomas (iii) aged 10 being described as a stocking seamer.
All the family were either framework knitters or seamers.

I then lost trace of Thomas (iii) until I found his marriage in Shoreditch,
London to Elizabeth Mary West in 1864. He was the founding London
Frith. He had become a butcher by then. There were 8 children. The
firstborn, Thomas William (Thomas iv) was born in Liverpool Road,
Islington in 1866. The fifth child, George, was my husband's grandfather).

George married Annie and their 7th child was Thomas Alfred (known
as Alf) (Thomas v). Alf's only child was Anthony Ronald Frith and our
second son, Thomas Alfred Frith, known as Tom (Thomas vi?) was also
born in Liverpool Road, Islington in May 1957. We hadn't known of the
coincidental connection at the Time

1861 Cencus: All the family still at Priory Row but 20-year-old Thomas is missing. Probably gone to London by then

1871 Census: Old man Thomas and Hannah, now 70 years old, still at the framework knitting at Priory Row but now Mary and Maria gone. One of them married a Mr. Powell and went to live in Burton on Trent but can't tell which one as the only sighting is of a Mrs. M. Powell. Still at home with mum and dad were George and Sarah aged 46 and 36. Also members of household were grandsons William (11) and Thomas (8)- both surnamed Frith. Can only speculate about these but I know a son Thomas was born in
Hinckley Union Workhouse in Sep. 1863 to a Sarah Frith (unmarried).

1881 Census: Thomas and Hannah, aged 80, still on the stocking frames at Priory Row. With them George (55) unmarried, desc. as odd job man and grandson Thomas (17), shoe finisher by trade.

1884: Hannah (84) dies 30 December at Priory Row, Daughter M. Powell of Burton on Trent in attendance.

1892: Thomas dies on 16 Jan aged 90 at No.1 Ireson's Yard. His daughter Sarah in attendance, now named Mrs. Pratt, lived next door at No. 2.
