FIDGETT - Ipswich - St peters
« on: Sunday 12 July 09 12:14 BST (UK) »
Hi

Am looking up details of one George Herbert aka 'Bertie' Fidgett (b 1883/4 - d 1915 France). Have all his own WW1 data and enough about his own family onwards... this is for Boss at work :-\ He joined up in 1900 and shows up alone as soldier on 1901 census...

BUT cannot seem to find any relatives going backwards (ie parents) on Census 1891, 1881, etc. Have managed to find a Thomas Fidgett marrying a Rebecca Ellen Clixby in 1871 in Hull ???

Haven't yet got anything like GRO certificates to indicate precisely parents names but, do know from WW1 soldiers docs that Mum (forename looks like Rebecca) Fidgett was living in St Peters, Suffolk. see attached

On the 'next of kin section... what does it say in brackets alongside name Charles Fidgett (is he the father??)?

I am aware of the deviations on the surname but this hasn't seemed to help..

Cheers

Hi,  If he was born in 1843  he must have been 57 when he joined up in 1900?

  Is his birth year really 1843/4? Seems very old for the army to take him.

Ok... that's a bit more like it ;D ;D

have you looked on CWGC site? Commonwealth War Grave Commission site- may be of interest to your Boss.

the word in bracket after Charles Fidgett is almost illegible... is it dec'd? that migght make sense but don't think that is it ???
Sorry not to be able to decipher this.

wouldnt it be better to get the marriage cert to see who his father was , seems to old to have joined the army as Charlotte says ???

Yes, Ye Olde Friar is right ;)... getting the marriage cert is the best way to establish who his father was. 

Then maybe as a bonus it will throw light on the illegible word ;D

Tried blowing up the image a little and all I can make out for the bracketed word is Olser, could it be his occupation Ostler?

By the way, Little Gipping Street (and for that matter Great Gipping Street :D still in Ipswich - they are close to Civic Drive (part of the 1960s redevelopment).

Pat ...

Every time I find an ancestor,
I have to find two more!

LDN/MDX - Murray, Clancy, Broker, Hoskins, Marsden, Wilson, Sale
 
GGfather Michael Wilson born Cork, lived Fulham London - moved to Boston USA 1889, what happened next?
