Edward Mycock and Ann Selina Godber

were married on 12th July 1868 in the Parish Church, Fairfield, Derbyshire.

Edward Mycock

was born on 23rd December 1848 in Priestcliffe Ditch, Derbyshire.

His parents were Joseph Mycock and Martha Beresford.

Ann Selina Godber

was born on 21st August 1848 in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.

Her parents were Asa Godber and Emma Kirk.

At the time of their marriage, Edward worked as a collier. The family moved from Fairfield to Whaley Bridge then to Mellor which are all in Derbyshire, from there they moved to Marple and then to Romiley which are both in Cheshire.

On the 1881 census the family was living in Marple. By 1891 they were living in Romiley and Edward was working as a gardener's labourer. These census records show that Edward and Ann Selina had eight children. One child not shown was Matilda, as she was born and died between censuses. I think there were probably more children because I remember my grandmother, Sarah Ann Cox, telling me that she was one of 14 children. I suspect the others must have died in infancy.

Edward died, at the age of 48, following the rupture of an abdominal aneurism on April 7th 1896 at The Tang in Romiley and was buried at St Chad's Church on April 9th 1896.

Ann Selina died, at the age of 78, on 12th May 1927 at 16 The Tang in Romiley. Cause of death was recorded as senile decay and coma. She was buried, with her husband, at St Chad's Church in Romiley on 16th May 1927.
