in Leeds

For earlier history of this family see VOSE in Lancashire 

[VOSE671] Alfred Vose (born 1854), a tool maker of Rainhill, married 1. (at Whiston, St. Nicholas, 15th November 1876) [HAMP672] Mary Hewitt alias Hampson (born 1853), of Whiston (see HAMPSON). They had two children as follows:

Six days after Eliza was born, Mary died (age 27, of peritonitis) at Rainhill (29th September 1880, buried there 3rd October 1880). Later Alfred married 2. (at Eccleston, St. Thomas, 9th April 1882) Elizabeth Jane Harper (born 2nd March 1845, daughter of James & Elizabeth). The family moved to Hunslet (by 1884) where Alfred became a steel smelter, probably accompanying his older brother Samuel, who later (some time after 1886) moved on to Barrow-in-Furness and died there (buried at the Borough Cemetery, 20th January 1900).

Alfred and Elizabeth had one son as follows:

Between 1884 and 1911 the family lived in the Hunslet area, variously at Jack Lane, Smeaton Place, Flint Street, Barrett Street, Falmouth Terrace, Donisthorpe Street, Smeaton Grove, Smeaton Terrace, Cross Green Lane and Clarence Terrace. The family then moved to 32 Armley Road, New Wortley, where Alfred and Elizabeth managed dining rooms for a short time. They were assisted by Alfred's married daughter, Eliza Lee, together with Alfred's younger sister, Phoebe Lucy Vose, then age 42, and who never married. Elizabeth Vose’s ill-health probably caused them all to leave the dining rooms and move to Abbott Terrace, Armley. Elizabeth died (age 67, of a malignant disease of the breast, and exhaustion) at Abbott Terrace (4th April 1912, buried at Armley, Hill Top Cemetery, Leeds, 7th April 1912). Alfred stayed at Abbott Terrace (with his daughter and son-in-law) and died (age 66, of thickening of the arteries and gangrene of the feet) at the Workhouse (10th May 1921, buried at Hill Top Cemetery, Leeds, 14th May 1921).

[VOSE682] Eliza Vose (born 1880, daughter of Alfred & Mary) married (at Hunslet, Register Office, 7th June 1902) [LEEE681] Arthur Lee (born 1878, see LEE), a warehouseman.
