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.
In 1911 they were living at 67 Hazelbury Road, Fulham where 38 year old Charles was working as a house painter.
They had two children:
- Emily Dorothy Robinson. Baptised 23 October 1904 at Parsons Green, St Dionis.
- Elsie Elizabeth Robinson. Born 19 October 1906.
In 1933 the electoral register 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 Jarman 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.
Nothing more is known about the couple, save for fact Frederick Marshall Clifton died in 1973 in Eastbourne.
Charles and Naomi's daughter Elsie Elizabeth Robinson married Sidney John Fox in 1941. Nothing more is known although it appears Sidney John Fox died in 1984.
