The Biott Family - Carlin How

The Biott Family - Carlin How

A Picture postcard of the Biott Family in 1912, Kathleen Kelly great-granddaughter of the Biotts tells us: ”The girl in the picture is Constance Irene L Biott, Charles  and  Annie Biott were her grandparents who raised her. Constance was  born in Carlin How in 1902.”  The 1911 Census records the family living at 4 Furnace Cottages, Carlin How: Annie Biott as aged 67 who had 7 children (5 living and 2 dead) and Charles Biott aged 65 (Fish merchant). The Biott family ran a Fish and Chip  business in a building adjacent to The Tivoli Theatre. Amazingly it survived unscathed when The Tivoli burned down! They must have achieved a measure of fame!

Thanks to Kathleen Kelly for the update.

    Checking the family Biott . My mothers mother was named Elizabeth Biott who married Bernard J Lawrence from Middlesborough. She died in 1916 She had a brother Charles Biott, As children we were told that her grandparents owned a fish and chip shop around where they say they lived in Carlin How ,and the Biotts were from around Skinningrove region . A daughter of Elizabeth was born around March 1904 and may have been baptised at St Helens Catholic church. Just curious to know if there are any Biott relatives that can expand on this . Thank you This was a nice surprise to find this picture .

  • Interesting to find a photograph of Constance Irene Lawrence Biott with grandparents, as we knew so little about her!
