Popular baby names from 1880 to 1895?

So, I'm working on a project - I won't call it a book or anything, let's say it's more of a hobby of mine - and I need some popular names from 1880 to1895. I already have some of them chosen, but I really need some help. Basically, this will be about a family from North Yorkshire. Parents George and Rose are farmers, and after too much financial struggling, two daughters leave home to work as servants for other families. At first the children will be young, but then we’ll follow one of the girls twelve years later. Here are some of the characters: Eldest child, a boy who died at age 4. (I'm thinking about a name like Peter, James or Paul) Ruth - eldest daughter, leaves home at age 15 to work as a nursery maid. Later on, she’ll leave service in order to marry a young man from the village. Anna - the story will be about her. She leaves home at 13 to work as a maid, and then we’ll follow her at 25 working at the same house with no big perspective for the future. A boy about three years younger than Anna, who suffers from asthma. Due to his condition, He won’t be able to fight WWI. I thought about Samuel or Nathan for him. A girl about a year younger than the boy, a bit silly and naïve. I’m thinking about naming her Harriet, but I’m not sure. Youngest girl, about seven years younger than Anna, who thinks the world of her. I thought about Minnie, Lucy, Sally or Carrie for her – something ending with –y or –ie. I want to work on the family first, and then go on from there to the other characters. I want the names to be quite simple, we're not talking about an aristocratic family around here, but I can't find a database with popular names from 1880. I’ll leave Charlotte, Elizabeth and Georgiana for the rich families. So, I’m very open to suggestions and if you have any information about the Victorian/Edwardian lifestyles, I’d be very grateful. I’m still trying to find a job for the younger boy, but I’m not sure exactly what other jobs for men there were other than service and factories.
