Baldwin and alias names
« on: Friday 26 February 21 10:50 GMT (UK) »
I have been told that Roy Baldwin was born in NZ and also married there .  He is a real mystery - have not found him on births, intentions to marry, inoculations or wedding records.  More research and I have found a R. Baldwin in NZ police Gazettes  - numerous times.  How do I find out if R. Baldwin is Roy Baldwin?
In the Gazettes he is often identified as being 'identical with John Crosbie Home" and R Hensley identical with John Crosbie Home" "C. Rolston is also identical with John Crosbie Home" as is "R/H. Harvey".  "R. Hensley may be identical with R. Baldwin." these are all around 1942.
If R. Baldwin is my Roy Baldwin then he has had many alias names.  How can I find out if it is Roy ?  Can anyone explain the terminology 'he may be identical with". - is it just how it sounds ? Roy is supposedly married to Irene (or Ivy) May Hewett in NZ. Any help would be much appreciated - This Roy is hard to track down.  Thank you

Plenty of hits on PapersPast for John Crosbie Home's court appearances in the period 1933 to 1944, he appears to have been a busy man with 76 convictions by 1944. Based on his stated age in several of the newspaper reports, 29 in 1934, and 38 in 1943, he was born around 1905. Does this date of birth fit with what you know about your Roy Baldwin?

Hi,

What do you know about his background? Approximately when & where born? Parents/ Siblings?

Perhaps Roy was a nickname? More information if possible, please..... :)

School Records for John Crosbie Home gives a birth year of 15 Aug 1905 and attended Timaru Main.
