Return to Parent's Page

Susan Burgar was born in 1837 in Fleet St, City of London.9

The Baptism Register of St Bride's Fleet Street, London, 52 states:

Susan, daughter of Joseph and Caroline Burgar, shoemaker of Fleet Street, was Baptised on 25/1/1837.

She died in 1876 at Camberwell London.16 Civil Registration of Death reference is Mar, 1876, V 1d, p 492. Aged 39 - Camberwell London.16

Susan appears with her family in the 1841 and 1851 censuses.

See 1841 and 1851 Census

Susan Burgar married Hugh Stynes in 1856 when she was 19 years old.  Civil Registration of marriage reference is Sep 1856 V 1D p 414 - Lambeth, London.16   The following is a summary of the entry in the Marriage Certificate:

Susan Burgar, spinster, minor (no proof given) and Hugh Stynes, bachelor, full age, Engineer, were married by Banns on 16th July 1856 at St John's Waterloo, London. Both were living at Oakley St, Waterloo, London
Her father was Joseph Burgar, Shoemaker. His father was was William Stynes, bookbinder. The witnesses were Walter Burgar and A. Clark.

In the 1861 census it is seen that she has some of her brothers living with her.

See 1861 Census

It would seem that after Joseph Burgar's death in 1854 the family held together in some way. The eldest son Walter, who was also a butcher, had married weeks before the above census was taken. It is likely that he was living with the family and helping to support it until the time of his marriage. Susan had married young and was assisting with the care of her brothers. It is possible that Aunt Matilda (wife of Uncle William Burgar) helped the family following the deaths of her husband, William, and of her brother-in-law Joseph. Since she was quite wealthy, she would have been in a position to provide some financial assistance. This would account for the first child being called Matilda. (however, there is also the possibility that she may have been named after a Stynes ancestor).

In the 1871 Census the Stynes family has grown in size.

See 1871 Census
