    • From KFHS transcription - CD 28
    Gender Male 
    Occupation From 1819 to 1877 
    Mariner 
    • All documentation, 1823-61 i.e. censuses and at the baptism of each of his 11 children describe Robert as a mariner, though the 1871 census describes him as a fisherman and his death certificate as a boatman.
      His seaman's register ticket of 1844 says that he first went to sea as a boy in 1819.
      Although it shows that when unemployed he resided at Margate, it was issued at Ramsgate (and reissued there in 1846) - and it shows that he was a "Seaman". 

      It also shows he had never served in the Royal Navy or been in the Foreign Service.

      The following report appeared in the Kentish Gazette of Tuesday 31 Jan 1854 - could refer to his son but I think it's more likely this Robert:
      Under the heading "Margate" and subheading "Police Court, Wednesday":
      (Before W. H. S. George, Thos Blackburn, W. J. Gilder, Esqrs., and Rev. G. W. Sicklemore.)
      ...
      Robert Hyde was summoned for an assault on Edward Emptage. The evidence in this case was taken ex parte, the defendant not appearing. The plaintiff being sworn, deposed that on Thursday last he, with others, had engaged to go fishing with the defendant, and after getting the boat read for sea the defendant refused to go, and asked them to push the boat in again, which they refused to do, and told him to push it in himself if he wanted it pushed in. He then gave the plaintiff a blow on the side of the head.
      - The case being clearly proved, the Bench convicted him in a fine of 5s. and 10s. 6d. costs; in default, 21 days in the House of Correction at Dover.
    Residence 1841  27, Pleasant Place, Margate, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • At the time of the 1841 Robert and Mary were living in Pleasant Place with their 7 children (Ann ,Sarah, their 2nd son named Robert, Maria, Emily, John and William)
    Physical Description 1844 
    • Height: 5ft 3½inches; Hair: Brown; Complexion: Fair; Eyes: Dk(?) Blue; Marks: none
      (from seaman's register ticket)
    Residence From 1851 to 1855  3, Pump Lane, Margate, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location  [1
    • At the time of the 1851 census Robert and Mary were living in Pump Lane with their 5 children (Robert, Emily, John, William and Ann)

      Their house along with neighbouring property were put up for sale in 1855, in 4 lots, being advertised in the South Eastern Gazette.
      Lot 3 was described as "A similar freehold dwelling-house, adjoining lot 2, being No. 3, Pump-lane, in the occupation of Mr. Robert Hyde, at £5 4s. per annum." (i.e. the rent was 2/- a week)

      No. 2, the house to which it was similar was described as "containing 4 rooms, with frontage also in Fountain-lane" - I would guess from this that No. 3 also had 4 rooms, but be less sure whether it too had frontage in Fountain Lane.

      Whether the new owners wanted the Hyde family out, or put the rent up unacceptably or whether Robert decided to move - possibly due to needing less rooms as more children left home - but by the time of the 1861 census the family had left Pump Lane.
    Residence From 1861 to 1871  3, Carters Cottages, Margate, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • At the time of the 1861 census Robert and Mary were iving at 3 Carters' Cottages with their children William and Mary Ann and their granddaughter Jane Andrews, and it was there that Mary died in 1870.
      At the time of the 1871 census Robert was still living there, now just with his same granddaughter, Jane (now aged 16, a laundress).
      Sometime between then and his death he must have been admitted to the Union Workhouse in Minster.
    Died 11 Jun 1877  The Union Workhouse, Minster in Thanet, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location
