I think the word after Charles Fidgett is "older". Perhaps it means older brother.

There are births for:

Thomas Charles Fidgett Dec.1882 Ipswich 4a 731
George Herbert Fidgett Jun 1884 Ipswich 4a 775
Ernest Frederick Fidgett Mar 1887 Ipswich 4a 775 and unfortunately a death for
Ernest Frederick Fidgett Jun 1887 Ipswich 4a 454

Did you see Bertie Fidgett on the 1901 census, aged 18 and a driver in the army, based at Aldershot, reference RG13/ 612/115/26?

Can't find any trace of them on any other census.

Presumably you've found his name on the CWGC site. He is listed under B Fidgett and died on 7.6.1915. He also shows up on Ancestry, where it shows that he enlisted in Blackheath, London SE. So it could be that the family were all living in London at some stage.

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 ...



Thats what the address was on the 1901 census, I couldn't make out what it was at first ;) ;)

LizzieW,  having looked at the image again a little while ago, I too wondered if it could be Older ~ possibly older sibling?

YOF - welcome to Rootschat, I noticed the address on the image above  :D

Just a thought  ;)

Looking at Census returns on A******y and on the Cosford-Database, it would seem that there are a great many Fidgett folk from an area near to Hadleigh, around Layham, Raydon, through to Stoke-by-Nayland.

We lived in Lower Raydon in the 1970s and I don't remember the name at that time (mostly Stiff and Chisnall).

THANKS ALL

Yes, had found 'B' (aka George Herbert) on both CWGC 'Debt of Honour' site and on Ancestry under Soldiers Records - no doubt I have right man, but...

Yes, Lucy Adelaide was the wife who later married Edwin Kirk in 1916.

Will get birth cert and visit Parish records to take further..

HI ALL

Waiting for certs, etc

In mean time - the WW1 document you have all looked at:
1. I agree word after Charles Fidgett is probably 'Older'
2. Notice word 'Mother' is inscribed to left of Rebecca F..' What is it that is inscribed further left at same level as 'George F...' (above where it says AD or AB 358...) 'brother' perhaps?

I am well aware that these messages are very old but could not resist replying in the hope that someone picks it up. The Fidgetts you are referring to are my grandmother's half brothers.  Here comes the confusion!  I found the 1881 and 1891 census for my g.grandparents and family - the Peacocks.  On the 1891 census I then note that Rebecca (the mother) had three additional sons, Thomas Charles, George Herbert and Victor Fidgett Peacock (I found out the latter name from a death certificate (age 4).  YES, Rebecca called herself Fidgett on these boys' birth certificates but reverted to Peacock on the 1911 census and on her death certificate.
I knew nothing of the name Fidgett until I traced my grandmother's siblings' children and grandchildren as my grandmother left her three small children!
In 1891 they lived in St. Clements, Ipswich.
Cheers, Goldbar

Hi Goldbar

Haven't been on here in long time but, what you have said is welcome...

Thanks

This was done as a very brief 'little dig' by me for my Boss... not sure far how far he has taken up the challenge... think he has a relative who has done somewhat more research?

May be I can  put you in touch ?

Hi family-tree-owl.  Yes, that would be great as there is quite a story to this family and my mother knew nothing of her maternal relatives, but I have uncovered a great deal so I would welcome this. What avenue do you suggest?  I even have photographs of Rebecca Peacock.
I joined specifically to reply to that message. 

Cheers
Goldbar
