Note Ernest Chadburn Id #20,950 (Principal) was at home on Census night; Blackwell Colliery Company opened A Winning Colliery (off Fordbridge Lane). In 1875, it opened another colliery at B Winning (at Hilcote). By 1933, A Winning had 1340 employees and B Winning 727 employees. The Colliery Company also had pits at Shirland, Alfreton and Sutton. I think that the Chadburn family men may have been emplyed at the Alfreton Mine, being close to where they lived.

Census 19111911Ernest Chadburn Id #20,950 (Principal) was at home on Census night 1911 at Sherwood Street, Newton, Alfecton, Blackwell; Samuel Chadburn is shown as "son" of Ernest Chadburn - but of course he is not the son of his current wife Annie Snelson - he is the son on Ernest Chadburn's first wife, Ellen Spencer.

I wonder whether the first wife Ellen Spencer diedaged 43 of the same cause as her daughter Ann aged only 1 year ?
