S. Perrett

From Historical Hastings

Samuel Perrett came to St Leonards-on-Sea during the late 1880s. In 1888, Samuel Perrett married Mrs Ellinor Bolton (born c1849, Dover, Kent), the widow of Felix Bolton, a chemist and druggist of Hastings.[1][2]. A daughter named Jessie Lucy Perrett was registered as being born during the 2nd Quarter of 1889. The following year a boy named Samuel Wilfrid H. Perrett was born in St. Leonards-on-Sea.[3][2]. By 1890, Samuel Perrett was residing at 10 Shornden Villas, Bohemia Road, St Leonards and is recorded in a local directory as the "Secretary of the Bohemia Liberal and Radical Club", based at 107 Bohemia Road, St Leonards-on-Sea.[2]

The 1891 census records eleven year old Samuel W. H. Perrett (born 1890, St Leonards) living with his father Samuel Perrett and two year old Jessie L. Perrett (born 1889, St Leonards) is recorded at a separate address with her mother Mrs Ellinor Perrett.[2]

In the 1899 edition of Kelly's Directory of Sussex, Samuel Perrett is listed as a private resident at No. 5 Shornden Villas, Bohemia Road, St Leonards-on-Sea.[2]

Either Samuel, or his son of the same name, would appear to have emigrated to New Zealand on the S.S. Rushini, leaving on the 15th of August, 1912[4]
