The Spratt = Cruse Family History Website

Research on the Spratt side of the Family Tree - Candy / Boulton

Emma Rachel Candy was Clive's grandmother, she was born in Cardiff, south Wales in 1869, but the earlier family came from Somerset.  Frederick Candy was a mariner when he married Angelina Boulton in Bristol, which was an important city for seafarers.  Note the spelling of the earlier generations of Boulton - Boultin, probably down to the individual spelling of the parish clerk.

Emma had an elder brother, Frederick William Candy who was born in Somerset in 1859, and two older sisters born in Cardiff - so this gives us an approximate date when the family moved to Cardiff. 

Most of the Candy's were pork butchers, and Emma Rachel Candy also had an interest in the trade when she lived in the Roath area of Cardiff; in the 1901 Census she was described as a 'Butcher, on own account'.
