Yes, 'tis I, still with my nose to the grindstone.   You know how to get in touch direct, when you have time.

Paul

Another, much later, local-ish Cork, Frederick George, was fined 2 in 1916 for taking matches into one of the local explosives factories.    He was living at Shalmsford Street, Chartham, about 6 miles from Faversham.    More details if you get in touch direct via the Faversham TIC, as suggested.

Best wishes to both

Arthur Percival

Paul - one of frederick thomas corks sons was Thomas Percy Cork - he was married twice: his first wife appears to have died young and he remarried Ruth Amy Unwin in 1912 from Cambridgeshire. they had three children: Thomas (Tommy who married Gwen in bedford) / Ronald married Dorothy Greaves in Bedford in 1940 / Muriel who married Wiiliam Boston in 1971 (no children).
Ronald was my grandfather. Ronald had three children: David my father in 1942 / Sue and Ray.
How do you fit into the Cork family?
