Sarah Elizabeth Kirby and Edward Thomas Fogg (my great-grandparents)

Sarah Elizabeth Kirby (known as Sally, my great-grandmother) was born in 1872. In 1895 Sally married Edward Thomas Fogg.

The 1891 census shows Edward was a sailmaker, and the family lived in Harbour Street Whitstable. The 1901 census shows that the family had moved into a 7 roomed house at 22 Nelson Road, Whitstable.

The 1911 census shows that Edward (still a sailmaker) and his family had now moved to Chalk Pit Hill, Chatham, Kent.

This is a photo of Sally and Edward in their later years.
