Arthur Ellsworth CLARKE 1929-1986 born Jamaica died Birmingham UK
« on: Saturday 18 June 16 23:02 BST (UK) »
The above father was my father with whom I lost contact in the 1970's when my mother married my stepfather. I only found out a couple of years ago that he had died. I would be be pleased to hear from anybody who was related to my father or who knew him.

Hi

It might be an idea to buy a copy of his death cert as it would show who reported his death and their relationship to him in case he re-married

Bang goes that theory then!!

There is no probate entry for him as a will may have given some clues.

Grace - you could try putting an appeal in the local newspaper. That is the one which covers the area where he died.
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.

I am so sorry about that - very disappointing for you.

 I have no idea how to go about finding Jamaican births - but it might be worth looking into that - to see if he had any siblings - who may have had children over here.

I have found on FamilySearch the birth record of Ellsworth Arthur Morales on 11th June 1929 (the correct date) the son of Ethel Morales (no father) at 2 Little Water Street, Kingston, Jamaica. The birth was registered by Octavius Clarke, the occupier of 2 Little Water Street. I think that this is his birth. When he came to England in the 1950's he was using the surname Clarke.
