Early Life

Martha Hagger was christened on 7 December 1845 in Norton, Hertfordshire. Her parents were William Hagger and Sarah Wilsher. William worked as an agricultural labourer until his father died in 1860; he then became the third generation parish clerk of Norton. All of Martha's grandparents lived locally, as did dozens of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Marriage

Martha married John Horace Smith on 4 April 1869 in Norton. John, a gardener from Baldock, was five years younger than Martha. The couple already had two sons, Arthur and Alfred. The young family lived for a few years with John's parents, John and Eliza. In about 1877 the family moved to Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, where they first lived on High Street before settling in Church Street.
