william claude kennett
« on: Monday 29 September 14 04:53 BST (UK) »
My Grand father above was born in America 19th March 1888 to parents Henry-America and wife Fanny  of Ash tree cottage rife Berwick. He had a brother Morris. They shifted back to England. William Claude Kennett married a Beatrice Elizabeth Mitson. He was killed in the first world war, his wife shifted to New Zealand with 2 children. Is there anyone out there that would know any information about the families either kennett or Mitson. Many thanks Jeanette

Welcome to rootschat semgal. You have posted this request on the wrong board. I have asked a moderator to move it for you.

Are you looking for information about the family and their roots in England?

Marriage?
December qtr 1910
St George, Hanover Square district     vol 1a, page 1101

Kennett, Robert W
+ and on the same page +
Mitson, Beatrice E


It's the wrong man though, as 1911 census shows William Claude as single?! :-\

Hi

Welcome to rootschat  :)

There is a passenger list in 1922 for a Mrs B Kellett age 35 going to Wellington, New Zealand from 15 Lewes Trust Buildings, Camberwell Green with children Wallace 10 & Beatrice 9.

These children would tie in with
Birth September qtr 1911
Wallace A Kennett  (mothers maiden name    Mitson)    
Marylebone    1a   881   

Birth March qtr 1913   
Beatrice F Kennet (mmn Mitson)   
St. Olave    1d   472    

These would tie in with the 1910 marriage KGarrard found   :-\

While searching I came across a query on the ancestry board where some person was asking after William Claude Kennett.

In the response was two children of his named:

Beatrice Frances Kennett, born 6 Jan 1913, Rotherhithe, London
Wallace Claude Kennett - no date given.

And  because of the similarities of the names:
A recent bereavement last year for a
Mary Beatrice Kennett WAAF W3636, passed away peacefully 2ns March 2013, in her 96th year,  . . . Elder daughter of the late Henry and Ellen Kennett
In the New Zealand Herald 6 March 2013
