    Emma Osmotherly (my Great Grandmother) was born on 15th September, 1854 at home at Perry Street, Northfleet, North Aylesford, Kent, and baptised at St George, Gravesend. Her parents were Richard (a farm labourer) and Martha Osmotherly (nee Mills, who had been previously married to George Fordham in Fawkham). Emma and her parents were listed in the 1861 census for 10 Wycliffe Road, Northfleet, along with Emma’s siblings Mary Ann, Eliza, James and Richard.
    In the 1871 census Emma’s mother, Martha, was not listed. Further investigations revealed that Martha had died of phthisis (tuberculosis) in 1869, aged 44, and Emma’s father, Richard, died aged 50, just three years later in 1872 from a carbuncle which he had suffered from for 10 days beforehand (large ‘boil’, usually caused by Staphylococcus aureus) – both long before treatments had been discovered.
    Emma was subsequently found in the 1881 census, unmarried, as a domestic servant at the Greyhound Hotel, George Street, Richmond, Surrey. She probably met her future partner here, John Richard Bowling, my great granddad, as he was a wine merchant’s porter at about this time – maybe he made deliveries to the hotel, which was how they met.
    Emma died in childbirth at Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in 1895, aged 42. The cause of death stated as carcinoma of the ‘uterus ? cervix’. With her died her new born baby Mary – her eighth child. John Richard couldn't cope as ill and went to infirmary for 4 months, three children (and my Granddad) worked, and the other four were too young and were sent to Canada on SS Tunisian to work on farms by Annie MacPherson's Home of Industry in May 1900. *
