An update on my gt gt uncle, Leonard William Schmidt.

He committed suicide in his shop at 12 Strutton Ground in 1903 (see thread here http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=764359.msg6160984#msg6160984)  His children appear on the 1911 census with the surname Schmidt, but by the 1920s (as per electoral rolls, then reinforced by 1939 register and probate index) the children have changed their surname to COLE (their mother's maiden name).

I guess that their name change was not due to their father's suicide (reasoning being that they appear in 1911 as Schmidt) but due to increasing anti-German attitudes.

Wonderful!  I have recipes that I know by proportions.  They are ones from my mother and grandmother.  I look forward to receiving yours.  The more the merrier.
