Annie Hicks, Daniel Hicks, and Hannah Wenlock Hicks map locations

Looking at the possible census entries for Ann, Daniel and Hannah, I wanted to see where they were physically located. Here is a screen from google earth of the locations. Each of their birthplaces we believe to be Barking, Essex, England. The other two highlighted areas are Romford and Tower Hamlets where Ann may have been a servant in 1851.

1881 Census for Hannah Wenlock Hicks?

This appears to be Hannah Wenlock Hicks in 1881. She is living in the Romford Union Workhouse (apparently the same place her husband was in back in 1851 as an invalid seaman). It has her listed as a 72 year old widow "Charwoman".

I found a link giving information about the Romford Union Workhouse including pictures and a link to see who was there in 1881.

written by herself, April 9, 1931

I was born in Barking, Essex, England, on the 8th of January 1837, the younger daughter of Daniel Hicks, a sailor, and Hannah Wenlock Hicks. I knew very little of my father's family. My mother was born of Scotch and English parents.

Father being a confirmed invalid, I had, as it were, to keep and care for myself, assuming the responsibilities of a woman when I was a mere girl. As a child, I was very devout, praying and asking God for guidance and firmly believing that he would protect me from all wrong. And surely, I have been saved many times from most certain evil.

I was alone, or rather away from my own people at the time I first heard the Gospel and I think I loved it the first time I heard it; it seemd so quiet and pleasant to me. I embraced the Gospel and was baptized on the 17th of January, 1855, in the White Chapel Branch in London. Shortly after my baptism, before I had been confirmed, my relatives sent me a terrible book against the Mormons, marking it in places for me to read. The tales were so wicked, I was afraid I had done wrong and decided to ask the Lord to direct me aright. I fervently pleaded with our Father to answer my prayer that night as my confirmation was to take place the following morning.
