      Ellen RANDELL (Gambling) 1866

      Frustrated at not being able to find any of Frederick and Fanny Randell’s children in the birth register, I searched for anybody of the right age and place of birth called either Mary, Jane, Frank or Ellen. To my surprise I found Mary Jane Randell Gambling, Frank Randell Gambling and Ellen Randell Gambling.
      Ellen, who was born at the very beginning of 1866 in North Walsham, is the only available option to be Frederick and Fanny’s child and her surname was simply a legacy from Frederick.
      In 1871 the Randell household was made up of parents, Frederick and Fanny Valentine and three children. Ellen was the middle child, sandwiched between, her older sister Mary Jane, and her younger brother Frank. No reference to Gambling as a surname was ever made in any census.
      By 1881 Ellen Randell was age 15, and a border at Miss Caroline Smith Girls School in Cromer. The students were all aged 12 to 16 years and obviously girls.
      Ellen's next appearance in the records was as a bride. She married Farmer, Edward John Howes in October 1888. Significantly Edward's sister, Emily, followed suit and married Ellen's younger brother, Frank, three years later.
      In 1891, the couple were living in Mundelsey Road, North Walsham, with their first child, Geoffrey Randell Howes. Also in the house was Edward’s sister Louisa and naturally, the obligatory three female housemaids.
      Sadly ten years later the fundamental nature of their lives had profoundly changed. Ellen Howes born 1866, died in the winter of 1897. She was age 31 and left behind a husband and four small children. Furthermore, a Mildred Valentine Howes enjoyed a brief life of two years. Given the name, it seem highly likely she was a fifth child born around the time of Ellen's death.
      Edward John Howes remarried before the 1901 census. He took Edith Kitton as his bride at a ceremony in Kensington in the late summer of 1899.
      Edith was both the daughter of Mary Kitton and the niece of Fanny Valentine, because Mary and Fanny were sisters, originally called Spence.
