My grandmother was Kate Emily Harding, born 14th May 1889 at 18 Russell Street, Cambridge, the youngest child of the eight children of George Harding born 1847 and Elizabeth Harding nee Clark born 1848. Kate married Leonard Lantaff Miller who was born 6th May 1888, at 108 Gwydir Street, Cambridge, the eighth child of the twelve children born to Henry Robert Miller born 1852 and Louisa Dellar born 1853. Kate and Leonard married on 13th April 1914 at St. Paul’s Church, Cambridge. Leonard was a Compositor at the time of their marriage and they were living at 36 Bateman Street, Cambridge.

They were later living at 15 Ross Street.

CC&J 2.9.1887
: Alleged Bad Language —Henry Miller, described as a stonemason, of Gwydir Street, was charged, on remand, with using bad language and resisting P.c. Wright in the execution of his duty, in Gwydir Street, on the 25th August. Mr. A. J. Lyon appeared for the defendant. The case was adjourned from last Friday for the attendance of a witness for the defence. The depositions taken on the last occasion were read over. A witness, named Hopkins, said he was talking quietly with the prisoner and others in Gwydir Street on the night in question, when P.-c. Wright came up and said he "had enough of that," and added that " it was time they were all in bed." The prisoner said, "Oh that’s plum pudding face," which remark seemed to make the policeman cross. The prisoner then said, " Wait till I get on door-step." He then went on to his door step, and the policeman rushed him and "smacked" him in the gutter, and fell on the top of him. Witness did not hear the defendant make use of any bad language. The Bench, after some consideration, decided to give the prisoner the benefit of the doubt, and dismissed the case.
