Naomi Orpah Robinson nee Jarman.

Naomi Orpah Jarman was born on 15 July 1872 and baptised 25 August 1872 at Bodle Street, the daughter of William Frederick Jarman and Dorcas Barton.

In 1891 Naomi was working as a housemaid at 14 Sandringham Gardens, Oxbridge Road, Ealing. The entry reads "Romi Orpha" Jarman, aged 19, housemaid, born Pevensey, Sussex, but I am sure that this is the correct person. She was housemaid to John Josh Coleby, aged 63, a bread manufacturer and his three daughters and one son. The family also had a cook, Ruth Annie Winter from Lincolnshire.

In 1901 Naomi aged 28 was a parlour maid, living with and working for William H Wylde, aged 81, a retired civil servant and his daughter at 23 Collingham Road, Kensington. She was one of five servants working for him.

Naomi married Charles James Robinson on 11 April 1903 at St Jude's South Kensington. Charles was a 30 year old painter of 21 Blenheim Street, Chelsea, son of George Robinson, builder. Naomi gives her address as 23 Collingham Road, but no occupation is given. Her father William Jarman was a wheelwright. 

In 1911 they were living at 67 Hazelbury Road, Fulham where 38 year old Charles was working as a house painter. They had been married for nine years and had two children:

  • Emily Dorothy Robinson. Baptised 23 October 1904 at St, Dionis, Parsons Green,  
  • Elsie Elizabeth Robinson. Born 19 October 1906

In 1921 Charles and Naomi were living at 12, Rosebury Road, Fulham. Charles, aged 48, was a painter for Higgs and Hills builders. Naomi, also aged 48 was on home duties. "Dorothy", aged 16, was a junior clerk for A West and Partners, photo printers. Elsie, aged 14 was a junior clerk for Garlick Estate Agents.  

In 1933 the electoral register still shows the family were living at 12 Rosebury Road, SW9. In 1939 Charles and Naomi were still living at 12, Rosebury Road, Fulham. Charles was a painter. Their daughter Elsie was still at home and was a shorthand typist working for a builders and decorators. 

Charles James Robinson died in 1961 in Chelsea, aged 88 years. 

Naomi Orpah Robinson died in 1967 in Chelsea, aged 94 years.

Charles and Naomi's daughter Emily Dorothy Robinson married Frederick Marshall Clifton on 10 December 1927 at St Matthew, Fulham. Frederick, aged 29 was a clerk, the son of Marshall Williams Clifton. clerk. Emily, aged 23 was the daughter of Charles James Robinson, painter.   

I can find no trace of them in the 1939 register at the present time. Nothing more is known about the couple, save for fact Frederick Marshall Clifton may have died in 1973 in Eastbourne.  

Charles and Naomi's daughter Elsie Elizabeth Robinson married Sidney John Fox in 1941 in Fulham.  Nothing more is known although it appears Sidney John Fox died in 1984

Ansley Emily Ridge nee Jarman.

Ansley Emily Jarman was born on 13 August 1873 and baptised on 19 October 1873 in Pevensey, daughter of William Frederick Jarman and Dorcas Barton.

It is not clear where Ansley was at the time of the 1901 census, but on 13 May 1900 she had married Francis Alfred Ridge in Croydon. Francis was a 30 year old baker, the son of Francis Henry Ridge, baker.  Ansley was a 26 year old spinster, daughter of William Frederick Jarman, wheelwright. (Reg Gen June Qtr 1900 Croydon 2a 479) .

In 1911 Francis and Ashley were living at 4 Stanley Parade, Wallington where 41 year old Francis was a pastry chef. They had two children in England

In 1913 Francis, Ansley and their two children sailed for New York on the "Philadelphia" arriving on 6 April 1913. They were on route to Toronto. Francis and Ansley had a further two children in Canada

In 1963 Francis and Ansley's daughter Annie Emily Ridge was living at 329, Cranbrook Avenue, Elington, Toronto with her sister Elsie and employed as a "buyer". It seems that she never married, she died in 1983 and was buried with her parents at St Johns Norway Cemetery. 

Francis and Ansley's son Francis Albert Ridge appears to married Margaret Ferrol Rice. Francis died on 11 May 1966 and was buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto. It seems he died in Oracabessa, St Mary, Jamaica!

In 1963 Francis and Ansley's daughter Elsie Louise Ridge was living with her sister Annie (shown as "Emily A") at 329 Cranbrook Avenue, Elington. She is employed as "distributor". It seems likely that she too never married.   Elsie died in 1995 and was also buried with her parents.
