Birth of son Arthur Kaveney. Arthur is born in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
It might be assumed that Ellen returns to her parents for the birth of Arthur but Martin is still in Durham.
Martin Kaveney takes ill and Ellen has him admitted to the Durham County Lunatic Asylum in Sedgefield. Martin suffers hallucinations and Ellen is fearful of his condition. It seems she has returned to Durham by this time as she is the informant on his admission details.
28 Feb 1890.
Martin dies Sedgefield Asylum. Medical notes indicate a general paralysis for 15 months and finally convulsions in the last 48 hours.
After the death of Martin, Ellen returns to Staffordshire and lives with her parents again.
