T B Beresford-Walker
« on: Sunday 04 March 18 14:48 GMT (UK) »
I know a T B Beresford-Walker was teaching briefly in Dorset from Dec 1932 - Dec 1933 although, as the list he is on shows that he doesn't have a degree, he may have been doing something other than classroom teaching.

I can find a Thomas Beresford-Walker living in Mitcham in 1928 (who may not be the same person, of course); but no other mention.

Can anyone else find him?

Have you looked for a birth/marriage or death for him?

Have you checked the 1939 register?

I have, to no avail. And I've tried following up other people called Beresford Walker. I had high hopes for a Thomas Barrasford Walker (1912-1998) but he seems to have spent his life in Durham.

One problem may be that he could have hyphenated the name later on: looking for TB(B) Walker really would be a needle in a haystack.

I don't have any direct connection; I've just been asked to put names to a list of teaching staff (who are listed with just initials) and he is the only one I haven't been able to do. I'm not sure that information will help anyone I'm afraid.

Have you found lots of other Beresford Walkers?

I see that a James Beresford Walker (born Brompton, Kent 07.12.1870) signed up to the Canadian Expeditionary Force in 1914 - resident of Woodstock, Ontario with a wife named Louise - perhaps TBB-W was born overseas?
