Rosiener

When she married William Anderson JOHNSON (the Younger) in 1894 the clerk at St James Church in Hull named her Rosiener. Her signature in the register offered an alternative spelling.

Some Census enumerators had difficulties, except in 1891 when she said her name was “Rose”. She is “Rosina” in the GRO Births Index.

HALL, Rosina, Mother’s Maiden Surname: KIRKWOOD. GRO Reference: 1864 D Quarter in SCULCOATES Volume 09D  Page 126.

Kath calls her this in Filey Genealogy & Connections, adding a note –

Name spelt: Rosiener in marriages. altho’ there are two variations of it ie Rosienier. 1901; aged 35 with husband William A Johnson & children Charles & Gertrude. living at 8 Church Street. Her husband was an insurance agent

This afternoon I photographed the Johnson house in Church Street. (I don’t think there has been a numbering change.)

“Rose” was the household head on census night 1911, with her two children. Charles, 16, worked as a florist’s assistant. I must look for William! He died in 1932 aged 61. FG&C has Rosina living to the grand old age of 87 but I haven’t yet been able to confirm her death at Hunmanby Gap in 1952.
