George Pimm was born 1846 in Sunbury-on-Thames, Middlesex, England, United Kingdom to George Hyatt (c1820-1874) and Eliza Pimm (1824-1857) and died 1914 in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, England, United Kingdom of unspecified causes. He married Elizabeth Penfold (1850-1922) 28 November 1869 in Sunbury-on-Thames, Middlesex, England, United Kingdom. Ancestors are from the United Kingdom.
The 1911 census shows the couple had been married for 44 years [sic] and had 11 children, 7 alive and 4 who had passed away. I'm still trying to work out who the 4 were but I suspect Edward, Benjamin, Betsey and William.
George began his life as George Hyatt christened on 3 January 1847 in Sunbury-on-Thames. His parents were George, an agricultural labourer and his wife Eliza. His mother died when he was 10 in 1857 and the following year his father got remarried to an Irish lady named Catherine Donovan. In 1861 George can be found working as a rope maker living with his sister Charlotte and their aunt and uncle, William and Charlotte Kirk.
