Posted by admin on Jun 18, 2009

The complete population census of 1911 has been posted online, disclosing that Kate Winslet’s ancestors were publicans and Kate Middleton’s were members of the Abermarle Club where Oscar Wilde was accused of being a homosexual.

Among the records is the paternal great-grandfather of Kate Middleton, Richard Noel Middleton, who is listed as a solicitor at 13 Albemarle Street in Mayfair, the address – up until World War One when it moved – of the Albemarle Club where Oscar Wilde was accused of sodomy by the Marquess of Queensberry in 1895.

Titanic actress Kate Kate Winslet’s paternal great-great-grandfather John is listed as a retired Licensed Victualler while her great grandfather Charles Winslet was listed as still running an inn at the same address as today’s Lion Public House in Reading, Berkshire.

The census records also include full details of British Army personnel and their families stationed overseas.
