Non-Chess Life

 

William Edward Trumble’s parents were John Edward Trumble and Louisa Trumble, who had at least the following two children:

 

William Edward Trumble

born 30/04/1833, Hull

Joseph Stephen Trumble

born 08/01/1835, Hull

 

The baptism register of Salem Independent Chapel, Cogan Street, Hull, records the baptism on 05/10/1833, by James Sibree, of William Edward Trumble, son of John Edward Trumble and Louisa Trumble, the child’s date of birth being given in the register as 30/04/1833.

 

The baptism register of Fish Street Chapel, Hull, records the baptism on 30/06/1837, by Thomas Stretham(?), of Joseph Stephen Trumble, son of John Edward Trumble and Louisa Trumble, the child’s date of birth being given in the register as 08/01/1835 (more than 2 years earlier).

 

It would appear that by 1851, John Edward Trumble had died, as F. White’s General Directory of Kingston-upon-Hull, and York, 1851, listed Mrs. Louisa Trumble at 4 Paragon Place, Hull, rather implying she was a widow.  Also listed was Stephen Trumble, collector of assessed taxes, at 153 High Street, Hull.

 

The 1851 census found 17-year-old (very nearly 18-year-old) Hull-born William Edward Trumble living with Stephen Trumble (born 1774/75, York) and wife Mary Trumble (born 1792/93, Frampton, Lincs., about 4 miles south of Boston) at 153 High Street, Hull.  Stephen and Mary appear to have been William’s uncle and aunt.  Stephen was a tax collector and tea merchant.  William was a clerk in a merchant’s office.

 

William is elusive in the 1861 census.  At some stage from 1851 to 1871 William married Mary Ann (nee?), born 1832/33, at Bala, Merionethshire (now Gwynedd).  The couple had at least the following three children, all born in Hull:

 

Arthur Edward Trumble

born 1860/61

Louisa Elizabeth Trumble

born 1862/63

Edith Grace Trumble

born Apr/May 1870

 

The 1871 census found William, Mary, Mary’s 72-year-old widowed mother, and the three children living at 92 Portland Street, Hull, which remained William’s residence for another 40 years at least.  William was a draper’s cashier and accountant.

 

The 1881 census found William, Mary and the three children still at 92 Portland Street, Hull, William being described as an accountant and house agent.  Arthur was now a merchant’s clerk. Louisa was a pupil teacher.  Edith was a scholar.

 

White's Directory of Hull, 1882, listed William Edward Trumble, rent & debt collector, residing at 92 Portland Street, Hull.

 

The 1891 census found William, Mary and just Edith at 92 Portland Street, Hull.  William was a house, land and insurance agent.

 

The death of William’s wife, Mary Ann Trumble, was registered in the second quarter of 1892, at Hull.

 

Between 1891 and 1901, Edith got married, acquiring the new surname Smith.  She had a child, Alfred W Smith, born Jul/Aug 1900, at Hull, but within seven months her husband had died.

 

Bulmer’s History & Directory of East Yorkshire, 1892, listed Arthur Edward Trumble, William’s son, as a clerk resident at 21 Crystal Street, Hull, and Wlliam Edward Trumble as a house and estate agent living at 92 Portland Street, Hull.

 

Kelly's Directory of N & E Ridings of Yorkshire, 1893, listed William Edward Trumble, rent & debt collector, residing at 92 Portland Street, Hull.  It also listed an Edwin Trumble (a nephew or great-nephew of William?) as a shopkeeper at 38 Church Street, Drypool, Hull.

 

Kelly's Directory of Hull, 1899, listed William. William Edward Trumble, rent & debt collector, residing at 92 Portland Street, Hull.

 

The 1901 census found 67-year-old William Edward Trumble, 38-year-old unmarried daughter Louisa E Trumble, 30-year-old married and widowed daughter Edith G Smith, and grandson 7-minth-old Alfred W Smith living at 92 Portland Street, Hull.  William was a house, estate and insurance agent.

 

The 1911 census found William Edward Trumble, an estate agent, still living at 92 Portland Street, Hull, with unmarried daughter Louisa Elizabeth Trumble acting as his housekeeper.

 

Kelly's Directory of N & E Ridings of Yorkshire, 1913, listed William Edward Trumble, house agent, at 92 Portland Street. It also listed Edwin Trumble as a grocer at 82 Bean Street, Hull, and Arthur Edwin Trumble (William’s son), clerk, at 17 Queensgate Street, Hull.

 

Eventually, William moved, presumably in his retirement from work, to Woodmansey, two miles SE of Beverley.

 

Death

 

William Edward Trumble, of Redfield, Woodmansey, Yorkshire, died on 01/09/1927.  Probate was granted to Louisa Elizabeth Trumble, spinster.  He left £194 14s 0d.

 

Chess

 

He appears to have been a member of Hull Church Institute Chess Club as he played for them in the 1883 Hull Church Institute v Manchester Athenaeum match, in Leeds.

 

He was the founding secretary, in late 1887, of the Hull Chess Association.

 

He played against Blackburne during the latter’s visit to Hull in 1888.
