World War One / Re: John Thomas Knaggs WW1
« on: Friday 12 October 18 14:10 BST (UK)  »
Hi

This is the death cert I bought. The wife is not Louisa Poll.

Where would I find Royal Artillery service records ?

John

What is the name of the wife in the death certificate? His service record does not appear to have survived. Upwards of 60% were destroyed by enemy action in WW2.

Imber

Quote from York Register Office

The death entry here of John Thomas Knaggs in 1925 does not meet all the details that you stated. He is aged 45, but no wife is named and the address although in the North East is not Skelton Green Cleveland.

Thank you all for your perseverance, I was hoping someone else might have picked up some snippet of info I haven't.

World War One / John Thomas Knaggs WW1
« on: Tuesday 09 October 18 14:41 BST (UK)  »
Hi

I am trying to find the death of one John Thomas Knaggs br 1879 Skelton Green YKs husband of Louisa Poll. He worked in the local Ironstone Mines with Blacksmiths experience of shoeing horses.

My feeling is that he possibly served in WW1 and was killed.

Searches of Civil Reg deaths (and purchase of possible certs) or local church/cemetery records have failed to trace him. He his listed in 1915 rate books but in the 1939 register his wife is a widow.

One possible ref I came across from WW1 records is

John T    Knaggs    210106    Driver    1914    Royal Field Artillery

Could anyone help/advise me how I could find out more info to determine if this is my ancestor.

Thanks

John

Thanks all for your contributions

Studying the original page and bearing in mind what you suggest could it be

Ref (Reference) looks like 1 then Med  (Medical) then Mid for Middlesbrough and 30/6/54

I will look into confirming the death

Hi

See attachment

Could anyone assist me in understanding what this abbreviation means. It as been overwritten upon a persons entry in the 1939 register. The lady was aged 47yrs at the time of the register and was married.

Many Thanks

John

Many many thanks for all your help and advice, I posted in haste earlier, and fully understood what you had found what I meant to say was that the solution to this lies in the R.C. records.

Family lore indicated that there was some religious indifference perhaps this is why Thomas was Baptisted on his wedding to Annie Barrett. I will now concentrate my efforts on Edwards connection.

Regards

The Thomas Brown birth I am searching for indeed married Annie Barret his marriage lines are as follows

St Peters Seel St (Roman Catholic)

21/6/1921 Thomas Brown 22yrs Hawker 14 Court 3 House Parr St L/pool John Brown Labourer
                Annie Barrett 19yrs Bottling Stores Hand Duke Terr L/pool James Barrett Boiler Scaler

Witnesses Michael Barrett and Mary Agnes Edwards

On the 1899 birth cert for Thomas Brown the father is a John Brown Dock Labourer mother Alice Owens.

The other John Alexander = Alice Edwards was also a Dock Labourer according to  1911 census!

Does anyone know if Roman Catholic baptism records exist as they might give a clue to solving this.

Regards

John

Many thanks for considering to help  me.

I have delved into my notes from 1997 and from a questionnaire I sent out to a then living relative she stated Thomas Brown was Br in 1900 at Mann St Liverpool. She stated he died in 1963 aged 64yrs. Buried Allerton R.C. Cemetery, Liverpool. So his birth 1899/1900.

According to a marriage entry for St Matthews parish Toxteth A John Alexander Brown married a Alice Maud Edwards 4/1/1892 at St Matthews Church Toxteth, John was of  of 21 Court, 11 House Mann St.

I have been unsuccessful in find this family in 1901.

One birth cert I purchased is for a Thomas Brown Br 3/5/1899 son of a John and Alice nee Owens of Essex St Toxteth

Which will be Rosies find in 1901

Hi is this not them on the 1901 census cant make out the address but its Toxteth Liverpool
Piece 3431 folio 58,page 11
His name appears as Thomas
Thomas Brown age 34 b 1867 Liverpool ( dock labourer )
Alice Brown age 27 b 1874 Liverpool
Alice Brown age 7 b 1894 Liverpool
William Brown age 5 b 1896 Liverpool
Thomas Brown age 2 b 1899 Liverpool

But I cannot find a John Alexander in 1901!

On Thomas Browns marriage to a Annie Barret there is a Mary Agnes Edwards listed as a witness. Thomas father is listed as a John only.


Hope I haven't confused matters!
