Rose Eleanor Sugden and Tristram Tasker of Leeds, Yorkshire

7 Apr

Rose Eleanor Sugden was the daughter of William and Mary E. Sugden. She was born in Hull, Yorkshire in 1857.  She married Tristram Tasker on 24 DEC 1876 at Holbeck Church in Leeds. Tristram was listed as a leather dresser and Rose as a spinster. Note that Tristram’s father Thomas Tasker was a plumber and Rose’s father William Sugden was a soldier.

In 1861 Rose Eleanor was living with her widowed mother Mary E. Sugden at 23 B? Banack St in Leeds. She had two sisters, Susannah aged 10 and Elizabeth aged 2.  Susannah was born in Ireland as was her mother Mary E.

In 1871, Rose was still living with her mother on a different street in Leeds. There is a grandchild in the house, named Mary H. Wood, aged 3 months. I am guessing this girl was Rose’s daughter, but she may have been her sister’s Susannah. Susannah is a servant at the Leeds General Infirmary in 1871 and is not married. Elizabeth died in 1862.

In 1911, Rose was a widow and living at the Stonegate residence. One can only assume that they owned this dwelling of 5 rooms. Living with her are her children: Frederick Lewis 17, Eleanor Gertrude 20, Rose Eleanor 10, Frances E Ingham 33 and her two children. Frances was a visitor to England at the time and one of her children had been born in Winnipeg, Canada. This is the year John Tristram immigrated to Winnipeg, Canada. Rose reported that she had 9 children and 8 were living in 1911.

I think her nine children were; Mary H. Wood, Violetta, Frances E., Eliza Jane, Edith, John T., Eleanor Gertrude, Frederick Lewis, Rose Eleanor. I believe Mary must’ve died as a child.

Rose Eleanor Sugden Tasker was buried on 22 March 1933 and was listed as living at 7 Stonegate in Woodhouse.
