What is the surname of Thomas in this clip?

I am thinking PARKER??

This is part of the will of Daniel MORGAN, Ironmonger of St Mary Overy, Southwark, 1770.
I've got most of it but this bit has a few things I am not sure of. Thank you.

In the parish of Cayo the sum of one guinea for a ring

I have this notice in The Star (Guernsey) 17 December 1887.

I have combed through the Newcastle Daily Chronicle of 10 December 1887 and also 10 November 1887 looking for said essays.

Have I missed it?

I suspect it may be one of those cases of someone puffing themselves up (he later charged to hear him lecture).

Bedfordshire / Henry Foster FULLER 1864-1940. Wife and whereabouts 1901
« on: Thursday 30 December 21 08:01 GMT (UK)  »
If anyone could help with this man, I would appreciate it. It's just him, his wife, and children if any, not his siblings or parents that I am interested in at this point.

Henry Foster FULLER son of Henry Musgrave Fuller and Ada Eliza Dawson
baptised 3 July 1864, Niton, Isle of Wight

 Rose Cottage, Bembridge St, Brading, Bembridge

Ada E Fuller, head 40, Married** (Funds & Mortgage)  born Kempston, Beds.
Ada H. Fuller dau, 8 Scholar, b Stamford, Lincolm
Henry F Fuller son 6.  ditto b  I.W. Niton, Hants
William H. Dawson Brother 37 unmarried, annuitant, b Briton Sussex
2 servants

** She was actually divorced from her husband the previous year.

 'Worcester' Vessels, at Dartford

Henry Foster Fuller age 16, a cadet,  b Knighton, Isle of Wight, Hampshire.

I cannot find him in 1891

1895 a Bedford marriage to either Margaret Hastings McDermott or Ellen Perry
but I have not been able to identify which.. The other groom is George Richardson

Cannot see him in 1901 or 1911

1921 at Peterborough
Henry Foster Fuller, 57, of Needingworth, was charged at a Children's court with indecently assaulting a boy ...... Defendant was a man of unblemished character. He served in the Army during the War. He was by profession an actor; certainly in reduced circumstances. .........Gaol for two months with hard labour

1939 St Ives, Huntingdonshire
Henry F. Fuller, widowed  6 June 1874,  But I think it has to be him
Widower.  Actor (Retired).

14 Feb 1940 dies.
Probate 2 May 1940
Henry Foster Fuller of Earith Huntingdonshire, died 14 February 1940 at Walnut Tree House, St Peters Road, Huntingdon.   Probate to Lionel Abrahams, solicitor

FreeBMD gives his age at death as 75 = birth of 1865 which looks good.

Trees have his wife and children in 1911 as at 84 Herga Road, Wealdstone
But I do not think that is correct as Margaret Fuller a widow b Paddington  has in-laws. Jesse and Mary.
As stated  Henry's parents are not Jesse & Mary
Also an unmarried sister with surname Stamthwaite/Adamthwaite (or similar) )

I can see births Fuller/Adamthwaite which fit  the children at that census.

So - can anyone figure out which is his wife?
And where are they in 1901 (and 1911 but I realise limitations there) ?
I see no obvious Army record. Not even a medal card.

Thank you.

London and Middlesex / Death for Alice Mary MORGAN about 1938 (after 1937)
« on: Sunday 19 December 21 03:29 GMT (UK)  »
Trying to tie up what I thought would be some of the easier loose ends in this Morgan tree.
However, I cannot find  the death of Alice Mary MORGAN

She was born 1859 Kensington. Daughter of Algernon Herbert Vaughan MORGAN (1832-1862) and Mary Ann COURT (1827 - I don't have her death either but between 1891 & 1901).
d 1898

She had a sister Florence Amy MORGAN b 1858 Kensington
Algernon died when they were young - in 1862

from 1891 Mary Ann, Florence & Alice are to be found 47 Margravine Gardens, Hammersmith
Florence died in 1911 but Alice is at 47 Margravine Gardens in the electoral rolls right up to 1938, but is not in the 1939 register at that address.

I cannot find a death post 1937 that fits, nor can I find her elsewhere in 1939

Neither she nor Florence married.  They had Morgan cousins.

Of those who were still alive by 1939 - none have Alice living with them and there were no children to any.

She may have been closer to her Court relatives
But Mary Ann COURT had only one sister that I can see, Eliza Harper COURT who married another Morgan brother The Rev Edward Olmius MORGAN and had no children and had herself died in 1907.

I don't need any information about her extended family
Just her death.   Although a death for her mother Mary Ann MORGAN b 10 Sept 1827 would be nice too.. Found hers 1898
