The Jupp Family of Worthing
Frederick James Jupp was a
poulterer and pork butcher of Worthing. Born in Brighton in
1861, the son of Mary Ann and Henry Jupp (born
c1832, Brighton), a fishmonger of Worthing.
In 1880, at Brighton,
nineteen year old Frederick James Jupp married a
twenty-four year old cook named Hannah Challis (born
c1856, Notting Hill / Bayswater, London). After their
marriage, the couple settled in Worthing, where
Frederick James Jupp opened a poultry and pork butcher
business.( Kelly's Directory of Sussex records
Frederick James Jupp as a pork butcher and poulterer at
120 Montague Street, Worthing in 1899.
During their time in Worthing,
Frederick James Jupp and Hannah Challis produced
five children - Florence Annie Jupp (born 1882), Edith Gordon Jupp (born
1883), Frederick Albert Jupp (born 1885), Maud Louise Jupp
(born 1887) and Lilian May Jupp (born 1892). At the
time of the birth of their youngest child, Mr and Mrs Jupp
were living at 28 Graham Road, Worthing.
When the 1901 census was taken,
Frederick James Jupp was still the proprietor of the
pork and poultry shop at 120 Montague Street,
Worthing. At the time of the 1901 census, Florence
Annie Jupp was a 19 year old
"Dressmaker" and Edith was a 17 year old "Assistant in a Laundry Office".
When the next census was taken on 2nd April 1911, fifty year
old Frederick Jupp gave his occupation as "Poulterer
- Shop Assistant", which suggests that he no longer owned
his own pork and poultry business in Montague Street,
Worthing. At the time of the 1911 census, Frederick and
Hannah Jupp are shown residing at "Woodford",
13 Gordon Road, Worthing. Frederick Jupp's son,
Frederick Albert Jupp was working as a carpenter and
his youngest daughter Lilian May Jupp was employed as a
"Postal Clerk". Florence Annie Jupp,
Frederick Jupp's eldest daughter, had married in 1910.
Edith G. Jupp, a single woman of 27, was still living at
home with her parents when the census was taken, but she was
soon to be married. [ Edith G. Jupp married in Worthing
during the 2nd Quarter of 1911 ]. When the 1911 census was
taken, Maud Louise Jupp was away from home
visiting friends in Northcourt Road, Worthing.
On the census return, Maud Jupp is described as
a single woman of 24 working as a "Milliner". Maud
Louise Jupp went on to marry Albert Woodwards in

The Bristow studio had been established in Worthing
around 1889 by Walter Charles Bristow (1861-1896). When
Walter C. Bristow died in 1896 at the age of 34, his
photographic portrait studio was taken over by his widow
Mrs Eliza Bristow (1869-1935). Mrs Bristow's Chapel Road
studio in Worthing closed around 1918.
