Rebecca Tabraham

Rebecca Tabraham (later Rebecca Charles) was the youngest of the twelve known children of Richard Tabraham and his wife Sarah Cross of Ely, Cambridgeshire, England.

Rebecca married widower William Charles in 1849, and the couple made home in Cambridge, together with the three children from his previous marriage. It doesn't appear that Rebecca and William had any children.

By the time of the 1851 census, Charles was working as a 'Tailor and Robe Maker', and may well have made gowns for the University of Cambridge students.

By 1860, the family have moved to London, and sadly this is where Rebecca dies, aged about 40 years.

Her widowed husband appears in Finsbury, London, in 1861, still as a tailor, but it is unclear what became of him.
