Birth of Emily Croucher in FreeBMD in January-March 1865 in Christchurch (2b 584).

Christening of Emily Croucher in the IGI on 11 June 1865 in Christchurch, Hampshire, parents Henry and Ellen Croucher.

In the 1871 census as Emily Croucher aged 6, born in Christchurch, Hampshire, and living with her parents (Henry and Ellen) in Winkton, Christchurch.

In the 1881 census as Emily Croucher aged 16, born in Christchurch, Hampshire, a general domestic servant, and living with Henry W Hartford (aged 28, born in Ireland and a physician and surgeon), his wife (Dora A aged 29 and born in India), son (Augustus H B aged 1 and born in Christchurch), and another general domestic servant (Sarah J Vatcher aged 19, born in Christchurch and single) at Bridge House, Christchurch.

In the 1891 census as Emily Croucher aged 26, born in Christchurch, single, a cook, and living with Cyril Frampton (aged 46, born in Woolton, Gloucestershire, and a retired Lt Col in the Royal Marines), his wife (Eliza aged 52, and born in Dorchester Broadway) and two housemaids (Caroline Jupp aged 22, born in Chichester, Sussex, and single and Ellen Moss aged 16 and born in Fareham, Hampshire ) in West Street, Portchester, Hampshire.

In the 1901 census as Emily Croucher aged 36, born Winkton, Hampshire, married, a needleworker on her own account at home and living with her sister (Alice Croucher) in Highcliffe Church, Christchurch, Hampshire. There are a number of inconsistences in this entry. Emily is married but has the same surname as her unmarried sister. Alice's age is given as 35 and she is a dressmaker, but her sister Alice, also a dressmaker aged 22 was living with her parents. Alice was born in Pimperne, Dorset in about 1866 - I can find no other reference similar to this.

Winkton is about 1 mile north of Christchurch on B3347.
