Kennel A Rootham 1911 of Hunts and Bradford. Who were his parents?
« on: Sunday 17 December 17 09:05 GMT (UK) »
In the 1939 Register (Thorney RD)... Kennel A Rootham 1911 is with George Rootham 1857, Martha 1863, Polly 1889 and Percy 1902. These Roothams were from Holme Hunts, but an Arthur Kennell Rootham was born in 1911 at Bradford. Another Rootham girl, Martha 1884 married Amos Batty from Bradford and had children in Bradford by 1904. Any information about Arthur Kennell Rootham and his parents would be very welcome. Thanks and a Merry Christmas in advance! (I have only recently started using the 1939 Register and find it an excellent aid for more recent searches but don't have full access)  :)

1911 link. for Gladys.
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWJ2-NGG

1911 d 1/4 birth reg shows no MMN. So likely Illegitimate.
ROOTHAM, ARTHUR  KENNELL  -  1911  D Quarter in BRADFORD  Volume 09B  Page 231

1911 census for Percy shows a 21-y-old sister (Pollie) who could be Arthur's mother.

Note there is a death for Arthur Kennel Rootham in Peterborough,Jan - Mar 1978. His date of birth is given as 8 Nov 1911.

Pure speculation but wonder if his mother was Polly Rootham - note that in the probate calendar entry for her in 1962 one of the executors is named as Arthur Kennell Rootham. She died a spinster and would have been about 22 when Arthur was born.

Need the birth certificate.....

That link to Gladys gives Martha's birth as 'St Huntingdon, County Mayo', think it could be Ramsey St Mary's.

Thanks Pauline J , Chempat and Millmoor. I agree Polly Rootham 1889 now looks very likely to be the mother of the illegitimate Arthur Kennel born 8 Nov 1911. In the 1911 census she was still with her parents at Yaxley Fen aged 21, helping her father as a Dairy Worker. Soon after the census she may have left to stay with her older sister Martha (Rootham) Batty in Bradford where Arthur Kennel was born. I suspect the father must be a Kennel from the Yaxley area. Yaxley Fen, Ramsey St Mary and Holme are all close and likely places for a Kennel father to be living in 1911. The 1962  Probate is a great find. I'll follow up the marriage of Arthur K to Florence Osborne and check for children too. THANKS AGAIN ALL!

There was an Arthur Kennell born Ramsey, the son of Arthur Kennell and Martha, of a similar age to Polly:

It looks like his father died 1897 and his mother soon remarried to Abel Cook, he is with them in 1901:

But not in 1911:

Most of the siblings seemed to have stayed in the area but Arthur seems very difficult to pin down...

There is this Arthur Kennell who has been living in Canada, just for information as there are very few births in England for Arthur Kennell's:

Arthur Kennell born about 1889 (age 24) departed from Portland, Maine, United States
arrived on 11th December 1913 at Liverpool, England
Ship's  Name:   Canada   Shipping line:   White Star Dominion Line
