Looking for more info on a child
« on: Sunday 19 March 17 19:36 GMT (UK) »
My gg Grandfather Arthur Hammond was widowed in 1906, in the 1911 census he appears with his children and a housekeeper Sarah Elizabeth Tricker nee Kates and her child.
I know that they were a couple and went on to have 5 more children together although never married as her husband was still alive.
I have researched her  and found a article regarding her husband been a drunk and the children were filthy , hungry etc. The children named were not with her in 1911, infact she had 4 children.
Her oldest Alice Kates sometimes keates was born 1898( yrbefore she married Tricker) in Ipswich is the one i am trying to find.
Her others were William Edward Tricker bn 1900 Ipswich, in 1911 he was in a workhouse home in Ipswich, then in 1914 sent to Canada with Barnado's, he was KIA in 1917 and his body discovered 2007.
One daughter she kept with her and another son her sister had and i think adopted him.
I think Alice was placed in the home with William as there is a Alice Elizabeth Keats but I would like to know what happened to her.My grandmother never knew these other 3 children existed.
Any help most welcome

 I believe that's the same boat as her brother went on but had someone look into the home records for Canada and they couldn't see her .
Wonder how I could find out more

Thank you so much

Thank you have just requested to join the fb group regarding home children.Be nice to find out what sort of life she had esp after losing her brother in 1917.
Strange as I found her brother on the home websites straight away but nothing for her

Hopefully she had a much better life than she had here. It might be worth you posting this information on the Canada board (with a link back to here). Someone in Canada may be able to find out more re a marriage and death.

Hi,

I believe that's the same boat as her brother went on

It most certainly is, same ship, same party, ie Barnardo Homes. William Edward (Tricker) went to Toronto Ontario though.

There are four references to William Edward Tricker (Alice's brother) in a magazine entitled 'Ups and Downs' this was a magazine published by the Canadian Branch of Dr. Barnardo's Homes in Toronto), the references are for January 1915, January 1916 & twice in January 1918. These references are on the Canadian Archives website. These magazines are not microfilmed, therefore probably only in paper format but I don't know for sure.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
