Charles George Enderby - Bootmaker

Charles George Enderby - Bootmaker (era covering turn of 19th and 20th century.)

No background information has been available to facilitate an article until recently when an e-mail was sent in from Idaho from a family tracing their family tree.

 From details supplied further research has resulted in a few snippets which gives a little glimpse into that period. Charles Enderby moved from Enderby House with his wife Sarah Jane (nee Anderson) to Burgh House where Sarah ran the establishment which was then The Carlton Hotel.
Charles Enderby remained a Bootmaker and was listed as such in the 1911 cencus. They moved again from Burgh House to a house in Market Square and subsequently left Burgh to live in London
at the beginning of WW1 to be with his wife's 3 sons who all enlisted and all survived.

 A family obituary shows that Charles Enderby died in Southport and his wife then went to live
with her married daughter  Constance Muriel Anderson and died in Surrey.

The  owner of Enderby house (currently up for sale) Mrs Sue Holiday has kindly supplied images

 As there were two Enderby's Moses Smith and Thomas Noel on the Burgh cenotaph  I telephoned our Burgh British Legion representative and through that call this information has just been a revelaled.

Mr Ian Lyall  was involved in havng extra names added to the cenotaph and amazingly this has led me to seeing a book he has written with research of all the names on the cenotaph.
