The Family of Flora Overall formerly Cutter

Flora Cutter was baptised 23 April 1865 at Little Abington, a daughter of William Cutter and Sarah formerly Diss.

In 1871 and 1881 she was living at home.  She was a pupil teacher. 


She married Aaron Thomas Overall in the West Ham district, March quarter 1891 (4a 281).


In the census of 1891, at 3 Hope Villa, Cottenham Road, Walthamstow, Thomas and Flora Overall were boarders in the household of Frank Kimber, a bricklayer aged 25.  Thomas was aged 25, a bricklayer born at Cottered, Herts. and Flora was aged 26 and born at Little Abington.


In 1900 she was living at Abington House, Russell Road, Walthamstow. 


In the 1901 census at 45 Russell Road, Walthamstow, she was aged 39, born at Little Abington, Cambs.  Her husband was Aaron T, aged 35, a bricklayer (worker), born at Cottered, Herts.  Their children were Edward 7 (sic), Elsie M. 9, and Grace 3, all born at Walthamstow.  There was also Aaron’s mother, Maria, a widow, aged 74 and born at Upper Holloway, and his sister, Rhoda E. Overall, aged 41, a domestic servant (worker), born at Cottered, Herts.


In 1911, at 45 Russell Road, Walthamstow in 5 rooms, Flora was aged 46 and born at Little Abington.  Her husband, Aaron Thomas was aged 45 and had been married for 20 years, and had had 5 children two of whom had died.  He was a bricklayer (Builder’s) born at Cottered, Herts.  Their children were Edward aged 19, an audit clerk (Chartered Accounts Office), Elsie May aged 17, a typist (General Merchant’s) and Grace aged 13, all born at Walthamstow.


Aaron proved his brother-in-law, Tom Cutter’s will in November 1915.


Aaron died 5 February 1940 at Livingstone Hospital, Dartford, Kent.  Probate was granted 27 March 1940 at London to Elsie May Rolph [daughter] (wife of Frederick Lyon Rolph) and the said Frederick Lyon Rolph chemical manufacturer’s export manager.  His effects were £3,744.9s.9d and he was of 45 Russell Road, Walthamstow. Despite extensive searching his death appears not to have been registered in the GRO death indexes for the quarters of March and June 1940.  Perhaps this was a problem caused by of the war?


Flora and Aaron’s children were:

Edward Overall, born at Walthamstow and registered in the December quarter 1891.  On balance the order of the names in the censuses is probably correct and the ages in 1901 have been transposed.  He may have married Amy G. Brown in the Woolwich district in the September quarter 1919.  There appear to have been no children of this marriage. 

Elsie May Overall (1893 – 1963), born 1893 March quarter (West Ham district) at Walthamstow.  She married Frederick Lyon Rolph in the March quarter 1918 in the West Ham district.  They appear to have had no children.  Elsie died 6 April 1963 at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup aged 69.  Probate of her will was granted in London to Frederick Lyon Rolph (husband).  She was of 200 Birchwood Road, Wilmington, Dartford and her effects were £1,119.13s.6d.  Frederick Lyon Rolph died 17 July 1973 (date of birth 23 July 1893).  He was of The Limes, Brent Lane, Dartford.  Probate was granted 30 August 1973 at Brighton and he left £1,004.

Grace Overall (1898 – 1972), born 1898 March quarter (West Ham district) at Walthamstow.  She probably married James Latham in the West Ham district in the December quarter 1921.  In 1939 living on her own in the Brentwood UD, Grace Latham was born in 1898 (date of birth found to be 8 February 1898 – misread for 5 February?, and apparently married).  James Latham (born 1898 and apparently married) was found living in the Hart household with Frederick H Hart and 1 more person in the Wanstead and Woodford MB (see Edward Overall above).  Grace Latham died 21 November 1972 (date of birth 5 February 1898) and she was of 24 Bockings Grove, Clackton-on-Sea.  Administration was granted at London 13 September 1973 and she left £2,709.
