Birth of son Edward MARCHESI in Norwich, England.


  • Mary Danaher's father Edward was in the Royal Navy and subsequently joined the coastguard. They lived in Southsea near Portsmouth, a very busy port and large Naval Base.  Edward Danaher's family had emigrated from Ireland during the famine of the 1840's, and Veronica Marchesi recalled that there were three of them. It is recorded in the 1881 & 1891 Census' that the Danaher family was living at 4 Railway Terrace, St Peters, Broadstairs, Kent. Perhaps Edward Danaher was working there as a coastguard. However, nothing more is known about them at present.

    Mary was a school teacher and met Erminio Marchesi when she went into the bakery at Broadstairs founded by Federico Marchesi, to buy a loaf of bread or a cake. She married Erminio when she was 21, and shortly after that they managed a restaurant. It is believed that this was in Olympia, London, but by 1896 they had purchased a pasticceria and restaurant at 77 Prince of Wales Road, Norwich, where many of their family were born. Later they lived at 6 Park Lane, Norwich. In Poschiavo she was always known as "Auntie Janey." Mary's sister Ada Kate - always known to us as Auntie Kitty also lived with the family.

    Margaret Dews-Marchesi writes;- Granny Marchesi was well-built, jovial and a strong character, a matriarch. When we stayed with her for some months in 1944, we found her strict but kind. She had a great sense of duty, enjoyed social status and was President of the Norwich Women's Voluntary Service during and after the war. The parish priest always called on her after Sunday Mass for a glass of sherry!
