Hello again MargP

He was Frederick Charles Richardson b Braintree 1891. In the 1911 census he's described as a 'fitter', nothing to indicate he worked on the railway at that time but possible. He married Ethel May Simpson in Braintree in 1916, so if he was a railwayman presumably it was after that date.

As I said, all very vague, apparently by the time the OH was born grandmother had decided her husband's family was 'beneath her' and didn't want them spoken of, how sad. We found out he came from good old Ag Lab stock - like so many of us! 

Thanks anyway

My ancestor Thomas Edgington was a railway labourer in the 1851 census but cannot find his records, then again if they are not yet complete then I will wait until they add more. He was in Oxford.

Margp - thank you,  that sounds interesting, I'll google the people he was recommended by. I don't think we'll get far with this branch but Fred Richardson's railway career might explain why the OH is a steam railway 'anorak' - it's the genes!  ;D
