George David Rustill
« on: Sunday 18 October 15 20:36 BST (UK) »
Am just trying to complete a tree for a friend & am struggling to find anything much on her Grandfather - a George David Rustill b. Hambledon, Surrey 1857 m. Isabella Wheatcroft b. Hull 1868 in Oct./Nov./Dec.1891 in Armley, Leeds. They had a son George Samuel b. Leeds 1894, a daughter Maud Wheatcroft b. Leeds 1896, a son Charles b. & d. 1898, a daughter Ruby Wheatcroft b. Haverfordwest 1901, a daughter Irene Wheatcroft b. Hull 1904 & a son Charles b. Hull 1907.

I believe George David died in Hull in 1907, possibly before the birth of his son Charles. Rumour has it that George David was a Deep Sea Diver & drowned doing this work. I can find nothing on him or any of the above in the 1891, 1901 or 1911 Censuses. Any help to fill in this person's life a little & the whereabouts of his family when they were young, would be very gratefully received.

The marriage was on 19 October 1891: George was described as a decorator, aged 33, son of William Rustill, a carter.

Isabella was aged 23, and her father was Samuel Wheatcroft, a minder.

You would have to buy a copy of his death cert to find the exact cause of death

His birth cert will give his parents names and mothers maiden name

Name transcribed as Russell on the 1901 census of Wales
He's with wife and children
I can't read the full occ but the last word is "diver"
Perhaps someone else can decipher it?

Edit......  also transcribed Russell 1911

Hi,

Could this be George?

http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D7941541

perhaps fibbing about his age?

I can't find any other George David RUS.... born in Surrey in the right time frame.


Regards,
Daisy

This description of a Submarine Diver from 1874 was so interesting that I had to post it,
