Cecil Ernest Lucas Phillips
« on: Thursday 26 September 13 12:08 BST (UK) »
I am looking for a birth date for the above person for a friend, who is his grandson.  He was a writer of books - war, gardening and seems to be quite prolific.  I can find his books, but not a birth date.  The friend has told me his wife was called Barbara, born in 1899 and she died in 2001 in Dorset.  Cecil died in the early 1980's but not sure of his birthdate. He believes he may have been born in the West Indies.  Cecil lived in Oxshott, Surrey for most of his life.

Many Thanks!

Thanks Rosy99!  Please will you let me know how he is listed on the 1911 census, as I still cannot find him on Ancestry.  I have tried under surname Phillips and Lucas Phillips, but to no avail! ; :)

thank you for that Trish!  I found Miles after I found Cecil, but it was strange that his mother and wife were called Ada J!  I had difficulty reading the 1841 census, it was very feint, so thank you for the detail.  I couldn't find James jnr's marriage, so thank you again.  Seems that Harriet married someone a lot younger than herself, unless it is a younger brother.  The 1841 census doesn't give relationships.  I notice that Harriet put her status as 'married' in all the census after 1841, but no sign of a husband.  I will have to investigate that further, although it doesn't appear that Somerset had parish records online.
