One Hundred Years ago...

A comprehensive survey of the Reffell family of one hundred years ago..

18 Stafford Terrace Kensington

Emma Barrett, the servant to the Sambourne Family, had married William Reffell in 1881. After living with the Sambournes for most of her working life, by 1911 William was dead and she was still with them at 18 Stafford Terrace in Kensington.

As the house keeper supervising two other servants, she looked after Mary Anne Sambourne and her unmarried son Roy. There were no children from Emma's marriage and she probably remarried later in the year.
