Youngs in Southsea

A short while ago Peter, my second cousin, (in Bermuda) had asked me to look into the family history of his grandfather (husband of my aunt Pauline). It was known the Youngs were from Portsmouth/Southsea but researching the 1911 census had not turned up any positive leads. 

Some few weeks ago I was taking another look at the photos that cousin Karen has taken of the card & photo memorabilia that cousin Diana (who died earlier this year) had collected and amongst those was an unsigned card from Dieppe, dating from April 1918, addressed to Hilda Young of 141 Manners Rd Southsea. 

This find did the trick! I found her quickly in the 1911 census. The others in the household were: 

Charles Young, plumber, the head  of the family, aged 49 (born approx 1862). Mary Ann Young his wife, aged 42 and they had been married for 23 Years. The children were:         
  • Hilda Mary Young, age 17, born 1894. She was a cashier for a grocer
  • Charles Edward Young, aged 15 born 1896. He was an apprentice to a pawnbroker. Charles married Pauline Ient in 1922
  • Leslie George Young, aged 6, born 1905

Here is a close up of the wording:
