I would say you are right about the RSF, I cannot find any other badge in my books that look like that.

Hi all,

Got the certificate today and it confirms Jane HITCHCOCK, the mother of Edward Whitman HITCHCOCK.
Only just though, as I was hoping that it was either one of her parents who registered no it was an Ann HOOKER who was present at death of Saint Peters ???? Canterbury.

It states that Jane is the daughter of Henry HITCHCOCK a Photographic Artist. Which would be right as he has given his occupation as a Portrait Painter in the census.

Jane address looks like Northgate Street, Northgate, where she died on the twentieth of ????? February 1861

What I cannot work out at all is the cause of death, it is "P......... P............... Diseased Bowels Not Certified".

I was going to put an insert in here but for some reason I cannot do it. Will have to try separately.

At least thanks very much to you lovely people, I have found her, even though its tragedy with her son only 15.

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Re: Eastney Barracks, Portsmouth

Hi There,

It would not be unusual for a Stoker to be based at a Royal Marine Barracks. If they had some form of heating or engine at the barracks that required maintenance, a Stoker would have been doing it for them. Marines were for fighting, not Stoking.

AJ100,

It gets confusing when there is more than one AJ with numbers after the name.  :) ;D

I have two children only for John and Sarah Pittock nee JORDAN and they are William 1796 and Sarah 1801.

If you have more from the same parents I would be very happy to have them, Thank you

Thank you, I have all the info on the Whitman family. Edward Whitman HITCHCOCK's three children all married in Deal under the surname Whitman giving the father Edward Whitman HITCHCOCK's occupation as a Photographer. But gave his name as Edward WHITMAN.

The eldest son Edward James HITCHCOCK (WHITMAN) married Rebecca Taylor PITTOCK in 1904.

Yes he was a Stoker, not locally but in the Royal Navy where he remained until after WW1. He was a Chief Stoker when he retired.

Thank you for your interest.
