Jane Agnes Hammond (nee Levett)

Taken: c.1920-1939, Source: Hammond, Roy, roy@rhammond.plus.com, Ref: M2934

Jane Agnes Hammond (nee Levett) wife of Arthur (who was possibly also known as Harold Arthur). They were married in 1903. She died in 1939. They were from the family that lived at the Sewage farm house. The house was In Blackwater Lane, immediately east of the Witham to Maldon railway line. 

In 1916 and 1917, Witham Urban District Council complained to Jane, first because she was taking in lodgers at the Sewage Farm House, and second because of the behaviour of her children. They had been “untying horses, opening the Stable door and gates, driving cattle from one field to another, and other general mischievous conduct”
In 1919 her sister-in-law accused her of assault. She was acquitted – the Bench decided that the assault may not have taken place, and if it had, Jane had been provoked.
