Notes

I cannot find any earlier entries for him - the only information is from the 1891 census.

Marriage of Martha Luff and Henry Shackleton in FreeBMD in October-December 1868 in Farnham (2a 159).

I cannot find any entries in the 1871 or 1881 census for any of the family although Charles was born in Farnham in about 1874. However Constance was born in Fermoy, Cork, Ireland in 1882, and Percy was born in Islington in 1887. Fermoy is on the River Blackwater, 22 miles NE of Cork on the N8 - it was the site of British Army barracks so was this why the family were there?

There are two entries in Ancestry London, England, Electoral Registers, 1832-1965 for Henry Shackleton living at 41 Myddleton Buildings, High Street, Islington in 1888 and 80 Myddleton Buildings, High Street, Islington in 1890.

In the 1891 census as Henry Shackleton aged 50, born in York, Yorkshire, employed as a labourer, and living with his wife (Martha), two sons (Charles and Percy), and daughter (Constance) in 3 rooms at 4 Goodson Road, Fulham, London (the same address was shared with two other families). This was near the crossing of A3218 Lillie Road and B317 North End Road.

There are two entries in Ancestry London, England, Electoral Registers, 1832-1965 for Henry Shackleton living at 13 George Square, Fulham in 1893 and and 41 Humbolt Road, Fulham in 1899.

He is not in the 1901 census - a comment against his wife's name states her husband sleeps at the hospital. She was living wth her son (Percy) in 2 rooms at 148 Dawes Road (now the A3219), Fulham.

His wife died in St George Hanover Square in 1904.

I cannot identify an entry for his death and cannot locate him in the 1911 census..
