Jones Family Peckham Camberwell area 1920s - Thomas William Jones
« on: Monday 01 October 18 10:51 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone - I have this family photo but only know a few people in it.  My granddad is the second man on the far right of the picture and my nan is standing behind him holding a baby (my mum).  My granddad's elder sister Ethel is in the back row on the far right and I think she has her arm around her husband, Sidney Murrell.  I am trying to find out who got married - I have tried his other sister Frances and sent for the marriage certificate only to find out it is not the right one.  I am now trying to find out if it is his elder brother Charles who got married - I know it is around the 1921/1922/3 time because of the age of my mum in the photo (she was born on 16.10.1921).  I have looked up a few marriages for Charles Jones on freebmd and wonder if anyone would be able to look to see if Charles Jones' father is called Thomas William Jones in any of them.  Here are the details of some of the Charles Jones marriages around that time (as I said before the family lived around the Peckham Camberwell area so I am assuming it would have been around there.  If anyone could please help I would be very grateful.  Thank you:

Hi - Thank you for replying.  Yes, I looked on Freebmd and he was born in the December quarter of 1896 - it didn't mention a middle name - 1d 1010 - just Charles Jones.  His mother's maiden name was Georgina Seabrook.

My granddad's name was Robert Ernest Jones - born in 1898.

The parents Thomas William Jones (printer compositor) and Georgina Jones (nee Seabrook) had 9 children.

In the 1911 census they were living at 20 Grenard Road, Peckham. Children as follows:

Thomas Henry Jones - married aged 29 (son)
Frederick Samuel Jones - single aged 24 (son)
Charles Jones - aged 14 (son)
Robert Ernest Jones aged 12 (son - born 1.6.1898) - my granddad
Christopher Jones aged 11 (son)

There was also an Emma Jones born 1881 - not living at home
George Jones - not living at home
Ethel Jones (born 1890)
Frances Jones (born 1892)

Thank you.
