Biddiss Birth Merthyr Tydfil 1910-1920
« on: Thursday 10 February 05 23:37 GMT (UK) »
???I am researching my Husband's Tree. His Grandfather was Thomas John Biddiss a Regimental Sargent Major with South Wales Borderer's 1914-1918 ?? Thomas's Family were:
                       Maud Mildred Biddiss nee Kennard(1880-1924) Wife
                       Lenard Thomas Biddiss(1910-1983) Son
                       Gordon Kennard Biddiss(1912-1996)Son
                       John Kennard Biddiss (1912- ????) Son
                       Kathrine (Ina) Biddiss (1915-1948) Daugther
                      (1920-Sill living) Son.
My Husband Doug is the son of Gordon(1912-1996). All Children Were born in Merthyr Tydfil, Upper Merthyr Tydvil.The Family came to New Zealand in 1921. I have a birth certificate for John Kennard Biddiss 27/9/1912. John did not come to NZ with the Family.We can not find him anywhere.  Did he die at Birth? None of the family have heard of him. Thomas's brother William also served in Wales.Did he take John as his own. Can any one help solve this for us. Many Thanks in advance.   Carol Biddiss(NZ)

re address, We hold a birth certificate for another sibling born in Dec  1920, at which time the family lived at 270 Drill Hall House  Geln Coed RD (our  interpretation) they may have possibly  been at the same address in 1912

since posting this message we can confirm 2 entries of birth for both Gordon, and John (st catherines ref 11a 16640)  date of birth 27-9-1912, date of entry 17-10-1912. However only Gordon was baptised in the Vaynor Parish Church on 13th Dec 1912. There is no death certificate for John. Can anyone advise me what conclussions I can reach, or where to go from here?
