Thanks for helping Casalguidi  :) :)

You gave me a lot to think about and act on
I think Christopher is a good lead and will follow him up
I've found him still in Acton in 1881
I'm seeing the family on Wednesday, and going to see what else they know
Is there any more info on Jabez war records I could follow up on
Corps or Service number or shall I post on the Army post to see if anyone could
help there

I know all these look ups take a lot of time, and it is much appreciated

John

Hi John

Yes, do post on the armed forces board regarding John's Boer war and WW1 service - there are a lot of knowledgeable chaps around.

I keep looking but not having much luck with Jabez and or Atherlia (sic) in the other census ::)

There are some directories for Acton late 1800s/early 1900s at http://www.historicaldirectories.org which you might find interesting though the site appears to be playing up at the moment (a weekend problem I guess).

John, if you do a parent search on the IGI http://www.familysearch.org ie. just enter parents Jeremiah TAYLOR and Augusta with region (British Isles), you will see three baptisms - Mezalia 1848 Chiswick, William 1840 Bushey Herts, Athaliah 1842 Long Ditton Surrey.

Hi All

Thanks for helping and all the info I have been getting

I now have his Pension Records for WW1, I now know he was in the Boer War,
winning the Kings medal, and serving for more than 18 months
I must look at his records myself and see if I can get any more Boer War info to help, next of Kin etc.
The family do not know anything else to help other than his father is buired in Epsom, in a Manor House grounds?
I asked about brothers or sisters and only came up with the names Chunkey
and Pepermint Joe, don't think is will be of any help :-\

A big thanks again,
John

That kind of thing sounds familiar - I got the same sort of answer from older relatives when first starting out in my family history.  All the male relatives that could be recalled were known by some kind of nickname whilst the girls and women were known by their usual names.  I did, eventually, get to locate the "true" names for most of them ::)

Perhaps "Peppermint Joe" is a Joseph but "Chunky" - who knows ??? ;D
