Thomas John O'Donnell
« on: Wednesday 15 November 17 18:58 GMT (UK) »
Maud Godfrey born 1920 West Ham married Thomas John O'Donnell in 1949.

I have all the information on Maud but I am looking for information on her husband Thomas John O'Donnell. The information I have so far is-

Thomas John O'Donnell born 21/7/1921 died 1985
from his marriage certificate he is a postal worker and his father was Thomas Henry O'Donnell.

1911 census Ontario Cottage 53 York Road South Farnborough

James O'Donnell 46 Labourer Athlone  Ireland
Elizabeth 55 Chobham
Owen James Percy 18 Farnborough
Thomas Henry 14          "
Albert Godfrey 15 Nephew Chobham

Thomas Henry married Alice Naomi Addington Mar qtr 1919 Farnham

James O'Donnell married Elizabeth Godfrey Mar qtr 1891 Kingston Surrey

I know that Thomas and Maud had a son Michael but all parties are deceased.

Thomas John 1921-1985
I am looking for any information on occupation as a postal worker, any military service (possibility Navy), he was the chairman of the British Legion at Camberley for many years, but unable to find any records.

Any information on previous O'Donnell generations, I have not been able to find them before 1901.
Was Albert Godfrey a nephew or was he an illegitimate son?
I have all the information on Maud Godfrey.

Many thanks
Jennifer

It looks like the 1891 marriage parish register is available online.
Can you provide abode, occupation, witness(es) from that?
