1881 Census Edgar Musgrave Benwell Rd Holloway
The census below shows Edgar Musgrave's family living at 59 Benwell Road, Holloway, London. Living next door at this time at 57 was George & Emily Musgrove with their family and also Lambert & Alice Harris and their family.(see main George Musgrove family section of this website for details). Whether the Musgrave and Musgrave families knew each other is not Known.Remember George Musgrove is related to Edgar Musgrave through George's first wife Christiana, who was the daughter of Thomas Musgrave.
This would make Edgar and Christiana cousins but as Christiana had died 10 years before, and her father Thomas 2 years before that George Musgrove would probably never met him or known of him.
It is likely that the trust fund that was paying George Musgrove was also paying Edgar Muagrave as these funds originated from the same Will. It is possible that the administrators of the trust owned both these properties in Benwell Road. In either case both families only lived here for a couple of years.
