Paulina GREEN

Paulina GREEN was born in 1849 at Sheffield Union Workhouse, the daughter of Thomas aka John* GREEN and Sarah (née O’LOUGHLIN, later PIKE).

On the 1851 Census, Thomas and Sarah were listed at Spring Street in Sheffield, with Sarah’s two sons Joseph and William Pike, Paulina’s older sister Sarah, two lodgers, James and Jane Broadhurst, and a child named Sarah Plumpton who is listed as granddaughter to the head of the household.

By 1861, Sarah has apparently died – Thomas remarried to a Naomi O’BRIEN the previous year – and the family are living at Maltravers Road in Sheffield.  Joseph is now listed as a Green, Sarah is not with her father but there is also an 8yr old son of Thomas called James, and a 40yr old boarder named Matthew Green who is possibly a brother of Thomas’s.

Paulina married John CHAMBERS in 1870 in Sheffield.

* Paulina’s father’s name is given as Thomas across all censuses, but he is named as John on her marriage certificate.
