REA family - missing data
« on: Friday 02 September 16 21:21 BST (UK) »
I've managed to trace many of the Rea family but am unable to find the following information:
FRANCIS CHARLES REA - born Hammersmith, Middlesex 1880. He is traceable to 1901 census. Head Stephen Rea. Living Deptford Kent. Missing I need the date of his death.
JOHN A REA - born Hammersmith, Middlesex 1883. He is traceable to the 1891 census head Stephen Rea, Living Deptford Kent.  Missing is any date of marriage and any date of death.
STEPHEN J B REA - born 1885 Deptford Kent. Last trace 1901 census. Head Stephen Rea Living Deptford Kent. I'm missing any marriage and death dates.
Can anyone help with any of the above?
I'm researching: O'Connor, Connor, Rea, Smith, Skilton

This looks like a marriage for Francis

Marriages Mar 1911

Garrod    Rosalind        Camberwell    1d   817   
Rea    Francis C        Camberwell    1d   817

Looks like they had two children, boy & girl.  You can find them on free bmd.

The couple are findable on the 1939 register.
Ashford: Somerset, London
England: Devon, London, New Zealand
Holdway: Wiltshire
Hooper: Bristol, Somerset
Knowling: Devon, London
Southcott: Devon, China

I think this might be John's marriage

Marriages Jun 1915

Jose    Nora A    Rea    W.Ham    4a   207   
Rea    John A    Jose    W. Ham    4a   207

I can find a couple with the above names in the 1939 register.

Looks as if this is his death

Deaths Mar 1951   
REA    John A    67    Romford    5a   726

John has an Air Force record on FindMyPast, wife has been mistranscribed as Rosa.  Looking at the original suggests it should be Nora.  Gives his exact date of birth and marriage.
