Could anybody help me in finding the family and residences of George Woodard (born abt 1865 in St Osyth, Essex).
I believe he was a Market Gardener in Thorpe Le Soken, Essex (1901), marrying Jane A ??? (born   abt 1859 in Thorpe Le Soken, Essex) around 1895. They had a daughter - Ethel Mildred Woodard
(born abt 1895 in Thorpe le Soken, Essex).
The only other info I have is that he became a photographer from c1908 until at least 1925 working from The Studio, Thorpe le Soken, Essex.

Any details welcome  :)

Have you checked the 1911 census for him?

Here's his marriage

Marriages Jun 1894  

Cross,  Jane Ann    Tendring  4a 637   
Woodard,  George     Tendring  4a 637 


So is it his parents details and the earlier census you need to see where he was living pre-marriage?

there they are in my previous post - the family stays static till 1901 when his sister has left (another Jane A !). Of course, by 1901 he has married and is a Market Gardener - the rest you know.
