Michael Thornycroft Sassoon
« on: Wednesday 24 February 21 16:27 GMT (UK) »
I am really on the hunt for any further information to fill in the gaps about the elder brother of Siegfried Sassoon, Michael Thornycroft Sassoon (14/10/1884-1/12/1969). I know he attended the New Beacon, then Malvern and Clare.
Now there is a fair amount out there, which I have seen on Ancestry and I have confirmed, but I am just curious where he was post-Clare and during the Great War, his occupation etc.
It seems he didn't join up with Hamo and Siegfried. He has children (1909, 1910 and 1920) but I don't know where he was based. Abroad? He does not show on electoral rolls for several years and so there's a bit of a gap between 1911 and 1939. He was a farmer and a pilot, but I'm curious for anything else between 1911 and 1939, including the 1911 census.
Hopefully some of you wonderful people have some alternative places to look him up.
Thanks in advance.

Ancestry has an aviator's certificate from Maidstone Flying Club dated 30th March 1933. His occupation on that is "Farmer", so presumably he was a farmer in the Maidstone area around 1933.
Eva family in Devon and Cornwall.
Bowdidge family in Devon and Dorset.

Details of the birth of the youngest son, Hamo, is proving to be tricky!
The website "The Peerage" claims he was born in 1925, which surely can't be correct if he was studying at Oxford in 1939?

ALT Sassoon Registered Steyning, 2b 267
The other dates comes from death, haven't found the birth record for NBA Sassoon, but Steyning is relatively close to Arundel (third name).
