Gearon / Geron, Bermondsey, Surrey
« on: Saturday 25 November 17 22:28 GMT (UK) »
Thomas Gearon / Geron born circa 1865.

Married 1889 in Belfast and remained living there.

Possible parent's names Patrick Gearon / Mary Quinlan? (to be confirmed)

However two UK Soldier Records show Thomas as being born in Surrey and living in Ireland.

Any assistance on finding Thomas in England prior to moving to Ireland, together with confirmation of his parents would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Did he marry a Catherine?  Is he on the 1911 Irish census?

If this is the right entry his birthplace is shown as Belfast 1870

I agree with you CaroleW, that is what it states - and living in Mayfair Street. 

His British Army WW1 Service Records also state Mayfair Street as his residence, but Surrey as his birthplace.

I have just looked at his WW1 record (shown as Geron) and can't see any reference to him being born in Surrey.  Birthyear 1869 which is almost the same as 1911 entry

Am I missing something?

The document from the UK Royal Hospital Chelsea Pensioner Soldier Service Records clearly states he was born in the Parish of Surrey, near the town of London, in the County of Surrey. 

I sincerely hope that this helps.
