10 Chuckery Road, Walsall, Staffordshire (district 14)

Mary Jane Hicklin, Head, 57, Widow, At Home, Born Dawley, Shropshire.

William Henery (sic) Hicklin, Son, 25, Single, Leather Trade, Fancy Leather Goods, Worker, Born, Walsall.

Dora Edith Hicklin, Daughter, 27, Single, Leather Trade, Machinist, Worker, Born Walsall.

Sarah Ann Fulton, Daughter, 35, Widow, Leather Trade, Stitcher, Worker, Born Walsall.

Edith May Fulton, Grand Daughter, 14, Single, Leather Trade, Machinist, Worker, Born Walsall.

Some bits that have been scratched out would indicate that:
Mary was married for 37 years, had 7 children, of which 4 were still living, and
Sarah was married for 15 years, had 1 child still living (Edith May above).

(The length of the marriages would have been scratched out as both ladies were widowed well before the census date, therefore the marriages had not lasted as long as stated).

A little bit of further research would indicate that:

Mary Jane Jones married William Henry Hicklin 3rd quarter 1873 registered at Lichfield. - William Henry died 3rd quarter 1888 aged 39.

Sarah Hicklin married Lewis Bertram Fulton 2nd quarter 1896 - Lewis Bertram died 2nd quarter 1902 aged 28.
(both comparatively young at death !).

From looking at the 1901 census, it would appear that the leather trade that the family were all involved in was making harnesses, bridles and saddles.

Good luck with your researches.

Wow ... thanks so much Twix123 .... most grateful for your efforts. Just wish I knew how to search by address ..... I only ever search by name, which was no use in this case. Thanks again!
No problem Marchy. If you look at the same question that you posted in Genealogy, I answered as follows:

"the 1911 census is more user friendly than previous ones, in that you can narrow the search down to County, Civil Parish, Sub-registration District, then enter the street address in the selection criteria." Therefore, if you have access to the 1911 census, look-ups can be quite simple (the real problem is when you don't know the address but only have a common name, such as Smith, to search for).
I used to work up the Chuckery, March-Hare, Crabtree's.

Thanks for that Twix .... I did have the 1911 so I will follow your instructions!

Really Tony!? Small world .... I grew up on Moncrieffe!
Blimey, it is a small world isn't it, March-Hare. Just around the corner from Crabtree's, I bet you remember the old air raid siren at break time then :-)
Tony - air raid siren ?!

Joking aside our bell at school was something along those lines. It is too long ago to remember if it was the fire alarm or the normal end of lesson bell.
Ours at school ( infants / junior ) was one of those bells that you had to spin around, wolf. The one at the old Crabtree factory was a proper old air raid warning siren up on one ( I think the office block ) factory roof's.

since typing my answer I now have now realised that I left school 39years ago. That is a terrifying thought. The fact that I retired on health grounds when I was 40 makes me feel a bit better.
48 years ago I left school, Susan. I see haven't used trigonometry or logarithms yet ( have you ) another couple of years until I can retire.

Hang on though, retire at 40, even the cops can't do that ;-)

I do remember the siren .... five to one.... time to walk to Blue Coat for afternoon school only when in Infants. Am sure it sounded at midnight at new year too!
Recon that the siren at five to one was for the benefit of the blokes that went to the working mens club in Lincoln road or that club up by the Chamberlin and Hill foundry, you know 'you have five mins to get that pint down yer neck and be clocked in'.
