Robert Wilden (latterly Wilding) is born in Hitcham; the son of Mary Wilding. He is my great, great grandfather. In the 1841 census, he is listed as Robert Carlo, but changes his name to Wilden by the 1851 census. There are many instances of children in the early census showing as listed with the fathers names. Mary Wilding latterly marries Robert Carlo, the father. Robert Wilden is married to Caroline Death (one of three sisters married into the Wilding family). As can be seen from the childrens birth places, they are living in Hadleigh by 1861; and later move on to Elsett. Life must have been very hard in the early days of being an agricultural labourer, as can be seen by the very young aes that the sons were expected to work in the fields. ( Their eldest son, William, who was born in 1850 in Kettlebaston is not with them at this time; but lodging in Raydon, Suffolk a few years prior to marrying Mary Ann Cole in 1875 in Raydon. These are my great grand parents).
