Same First Name
« on: Monday 19 June 17 19:34 BST (UK) »
Hi
Has anyone seen this kind of logic
Looks like Thomas Arnell b 18 Nov 1911 Boiler Maker & Thomas Robson Arnell b 23 June 1928 were brothers children of John T Arnell & Mary J Arnell (Robson)......I wonder if the informant got a thick ear when he got home. :-\ :-\

Are you sure that the first one didn't die? It took me ages to realise that my great grandfather was named after his brother who died aged 2. I couldn't work out why his age was always out by 2 years until I found both baptisms and then a death for the first one.

Norman Arnell 29 Nov 1919 & Thomas Robson Arnell were brothers. Norman was a lay preacher & is buried at St Albans Heworth. Shame there are no books with his photo in.
Cheers guys

So he was blameless! Unlike my grandfather who was sent off to register my mother and her identical twin as Maud and Martha. He stopped off at a pub to wet their heads and decided he didn't like those names, so registered them as Joan and Vera. My grandmother wasn't happy but my mother was eternally grateful for that.  ;D ;D
