Thanks for all your help. The extra bits have added to the picture. I now have to move on to his son Theodore. I know his birth and have followed him through the various census. He seems to have had children with at least two woman but I cannot find any civil marriage record. The family legend is that  he went off to fight with the Turks and was killed at Gallipoli but I have found an Army marriage record and a death record in Beyrout which may disprove this story. I have ordered the certificates so await the outcome.

Is this the same Theodore Trad?
4th Volunteer Battalion, Devonshire Regiment 1899

Amended it does look like he died in Beirut in 1921-ish

Theodore TRAD has become more of a mystery. I cannot find any attestation papers but have found mention of T TRAD in both the Devonshire Regiment and the Liverpool Regiment. According to the 1901 census that TRAD has a birth year of 1875 and was born in Torquay, Devon. My man was born in 1871 in Sale, Cheshire.
I canít find a birth record for the Devon man and with such an unusual surname I am at a loss as to where to look next. I am still waiting for the overseas marriage and death certificates. Letís hope they throw a bit more light on the subject!
