Census Records

1871 Census entry for 42 Regent Square, St Pancras, Marylebone
Name Relation to Head Married Age last birthday Occupation Where born
Alexander C Hassé Head Married 57 Master of the Moravian Chapel Yorkshire, Parish of Calverley
Harriet Hasse Wife Married 56 Example Somerset, Bristol
Ann Ward Serv Unmarried 37 Servant Yorkshire, Parish of Calverley

Italic Text above disagrees with Ancestry Library transcription of Carverley and Cawerley (Both of which are reasonable interpretations of the handwriting but do not exist.) but is listed here as Calverley because the 1891 census list their place of birth as Fulneck and Hough End. An assumption is being made that the spelling in the census record is due to writing what was heard.

1881 Census for Kingswood Hill, Oldland, near Bristol lists Alexander C Hasse, 67, Moravian Minister, born Fulneck. Harriet Hasse, wife, 66, born Bristol and Ann Ward, domestic servant, 47, born Pudsey.

Name Relation to Head Married Age last birthday Occupation Where born
Alexander C Hassé Head Married 77 Bishop of Moravian Church Yorkshire, Fulneck

Fulneck is also a Moravian Settlement. Fulneck and Hough End are very close to each other and both were part of the ancient Parish of Calverley.

Alex C Hasse and Alexander B (Bulow) Hasse do not seem to be related.
