London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Re: George Crook - 1871 census
« on: Tuesday 28 December 04 16:43 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Ray!

It's amazing what you can find by chance!

::) RG10 734 - this has got to be the most unreadable census record ever!  George Crook's name is also written between two others - Eliza Ann is Eliza Ann Crock.  Can't blame the transcribers though - if it hadn't already been done, I wouldn't have had a clue!  :D

They were living at 52 ????  in Camberwell.

John Splatt/Spratt, Head, 32, Unmarried,Commercial Clerk, Surrey Lambeth
Mary A Splatt/Spratt, Sister, 26, Unmarried, Housekeeper, Surrey Lambeth
Eliza Ann Crook, 44, Widowed, ???maker, Devon Kenn
Eliza J Dickenson(?), Cousin, 9, Scholar, Hagg??? Middlesex
George Crook, Cousin, 15, Commercial Clerk, Surrey Lambeth
Sarah David(?), Serv(?), 15, Servant, Stepney(?)

There are a few question marks in there I know, but it's definitely them!

Hope this helps!

Regards, Emma  ;)

Hi Kris,

Thanks for your help!  All this stems from a visit to Wickhambrook when I saw Adolphus Bertie Edgley on the war memorial there (Major G wasn't though...)
I've been in contact with my 6th cousin :o for the first time today and he told me about Major G.  So, I know where they were born, and I know where both of them are now, but I want to know what happened in between!  I think they would have been my first cousins, three times removed, so not that distant really!! :D

Emma ;)


I am looking to tie up some family information.  According to Commonwealth War Grave records, Adolphus Bertie Edgley (c1891) was born to James Edgley and Betsey Jane Shave from Wickhambrook. 
I have been told that he also had a brother called Major Gaskoin Edgley.  He can be found on the 1891 census, aged 3 although his parents are James and Jane Edgley. ::)

Adolphus Bertie Edgley went to Australia in December 1911.  He joined the Australian Army in WW1 and was killed in action on 07/08/1915 in Turkey. :'(
Major Gaskoin Edgley joined the Suffolk Regiment in WW1 and was later killed in action on 16/05/1917 in France. :'(

The questions I want to answer is whether these two were brothers?  What happened to Adolphus after he moved to Australia?  Was he married?  Was Major Gaskoin Edgley married? 
They are difficult to find so if anyone can find any information on them, I'd be grateful!

Hi Jan,

Richard Train is listed on the BMD as marrying Susannah Pinder in the Quarter of March 1879 in Driffield.

Volume 9d, Page 399

On the 1871 census, Susannah Pinder is listed as follows:

Henry Heron, Head, 69, Hornsea, Farmer of 106(?) acres of land employing 2 men
Ann Heron, Wife, 71, Skipsea, Farmer's Wife

Susannah Pinder, Servant, 15, Beeford Yorkshire, General Domestic Servant

Susannah Train died aged 35, in the quarter of June 1891 in Sculcoates.
Volume 9d Page 193

That is all I can find at the moment!  :D

Regards, Emma  ;)

Would he have had a sister called Mary A Bennett? Born around 1851?

Although, that said, this William Bennett actually appears on the 1901 census as an unmarried inmate of the Brighton Workhouse.  There's that illusion gone then!  I'll keep looking!

There is an unmarried William Bennett on the 1891 census although he is listed as being born in Brighton, Sussex.  He is living with Elizabeth Bennett (Widowed) and her family and is there as brother to the head of the family, although I think he would have been the brother of Elizabeth's husband...would your William Bennet have had a sister in law called Elizabeth?

In 1901, William Bennett aged 56 is listed as head of household and is married to a lady called Elizabeth...his sister in law perhaps?  :o Even if this isn't your William Bennett, it still makes a good story!

Regards, Emma
