In 1899, in Rotherham, Frederick married Mabel Hutchinson and together they issued five children, called, Leonard (1901 to 1971), Eric (1902 to 1953), Clifford (1905 to 1964), Hannah Mabel (1910 to 1998) and Ernest Harold (1918 to 1963).

Below is Frederick’s obituary. Like his father, Frederick was a Butcher and in 1925, his business is recorded as being located at 31 Rotherham Road, Parkgate.

Frederick’s Headstone

The interment took place in the Moorgate Cemetery on Monday, following a service at his home conducted by the Rev. T. J. Williams, of Mr. Frederick Ambrose Early, who died at his home, “Kyngeston,” 96, Broom Lane, Rotherham, on Thursday week, after a short illness.

Mr. Early, who was 77, was born in Rotherham. He was in business on his own account as a butcher and grocer at Parkgate for over 50 years, retiring about six years ago.

He was a lifelong member of the Rotherham Congregational Church. In his younger days he was a keen cricketer, and was also interested in local football.

He leaves a widow, four sons, a daughter and 12 grandchildren.

    Frederick Ambrose Early was my Grandmothers brother. It was Florence Amy (my Grandmother) who slept in the same room with her sister – Blanche – when Blanche fell though the window in 1901.

    Florence Amy Limb is buried in St Peters old Churchyard at Hoyland Law with husband Thomas Lindley Limb – although no sign left of headstone.
    She died 19/02/1948 & I have a picture of her with me & Thomas in summer 1945 at Hoyland, shortly before Thomas died. I was born December 1944 & do not remember Florence. They lived at 47 Milton Rd & I lived at 49 for the first 21 years of my life. T Limb & Son were Plumbers – the son being my father – Jesse – probably named after his Grandfather from Rotherham – mentioned in your notes.
