Generation No. 2

 

2.  Thomas2 ASPINALL (Johannes/Johannis/John1)5 was born Abt. 17255, and died February 1783 in Age 57 as Thomas ASPINALL senior5.  He married Ann ALLEN5 26 December 1752 in St John the Baptist, Somersham, Huntingdonshire5.  She was born Abt. 17305, and died Aft. 18005.

 

Notes for Thomas ASPINALL:

Signed register at time of daughter's marriage as Thomas ASPINALL

 

In November 1776 a Sarah STOAKLEY surrendered a messuage to Thomas ASPINALL in Somersham.  In December 1783, after his death, his wife Ann, Mortgaged the property (of 3a. 3r. 31p) in the Lawns, Somersham to William MARGETTS, gentleman of Hemingford Grey to secure the sum of £62.  On the 10th February 1800 Ann ASPINALL surrendered the property to Randall CLARK cordwainer of St Ives.

 

Roland ASPINALL suggests that Thomas ASPINALL of Croxton went to marry Ann ALLEN at Somersham where his surname was not a familiar one.  On the other hand the ASPLINs were fairly thick on the ground and so it was that the parish clerk/incumbent confused him with the ASPLINs

3.  Sarah ASPLIN or3 ASPINALL (Thomas2, Johannes/Johannis/John1)7 was born Abt. 17537, and died Unknown.  She married Richard LANE8 13 August 1771 in St John the Baptist, Somersham, Huntingdonshire9.  He was born Abt. 174710, and died Bet. 9 June - 1 July 178911.

 

Notes for Sarah ASPLIN or ASPINALL:

Information from Roland ASPINALL

"Sarah signed the marriage register as ASPINALL, and Thomas ASPINALL was a witness.  Therefore "we must accept that her name was ASPINALL.  I suspect that she was baptised mistakenly as an ASPLIN in 1753 but that evidence is no conclusive".

                MARRINGTON (15).  Roland ASPINALL believe she is a daughter of Simon and Mary

 

Probably the same Thomas as Thomas ASPLIN

 

A Thomas ASPINALL is shown to have a House and Land in the County Poll Records for 1807, 1818. 1830 and 1837 and on the Electoral Register for 1826 when he voted for William Henry FELLOWES Esquire who came second out of three candidates with 911 votes.  The first two candidates were elected.

 

Information from Roland ASPINALL

His property was burned by the fire in Somersham in 1815.  "Thomas's financial loss was assessed at £102. 0s. 6d"  In 1815 he received 50% of the amount he claimed from a "Disaster Appeal"

 

Children William, John and Mary all had a Thomas ASPINALL as their father.  We still have to ascertain whether this Thomas ASPINALL is the correct one.

7.  William4 ASPINALL (John ASPLIN or3, Thomas2, Johannes/Johannis/John1) was born Bet. 1793 - 1794 in Somersham, Huntingdonshire, and died 31 March 1871 in Somersham, Huntingdonshire Age 77.  He married Sarah TOUCH 23 June 1814 in St John the Baptist, Somersham, Huntingdonshire.  She was born Abt. 1796, and died February 1863 in Somersham, Huntingdonshire Age 68.

 

Notes for William ASPINALL:

Addresses

1841        High Street, Somersham, Huntingdonshire

                Emma ASPINALL, age 1, was living with William and Sarah ASPINALL

1851        High Street, Somersham, Huntingdonshire

                Emma HALL was shown as granddaughter, age 9 years.  On the 10th October 1859 she

                married in the name of Emma ASPINALL HALL age 19 years to John GEE of Somersham

                Her father was shown as Josiah HALL, butcher.

1861        Public House in Main Street, Somersham, Huntingdonshire

 

William paid rates on some cottages adjacent to the chapel in Somersham.  In the 1850s-1860s Somersham Rate Books show that he owned several houses or cottages, most of them in the vicinity of the High Street.  He also seemed to own the property, probably at 1 Asplan Yard, in which his daughter, Ann, and her husband William, WHEATON started their married life. In County Poll records for 1837 William ASPINALL was allowed to vote as he owned freehold property.

 

The parentage of William is in doubt.  Roland Aspinall writes.

"Census records and his death certificate show that William ASPINALL was born 1792-1794 at Somersham .  However I have not been able to trace his date of birth and there is no record of his christening in the registers for the parish of Somersham and surrounding villages,

William married Sarah TOUCH on 23 June 1814 at Somersham, after Banns. Both William and Sarah signed the marriage record which indicates that they could read and write.

 

The church Banns register provides no additional information about them.

William died at Somersham on 31 March 1871 at the stated age of 77 years. 

GRO ref  Mar 3b/21 3

There is no stated record in the parish registers for Somersham and surrounding villages of his funeral so his place of burial has not been established.  William's wife, Sarah TOUCH predeceased him, having died at Somersham on 3 February 1863.  Again there is no record of her funeral/burial in the parish registers for Somersham and surrunding villages.

 

The absence of a burial record in parish churches may indicate that William ans Sarah were non-conformists.  It is known that William paid rates on some cottages adjacent to the chapel in Somersham.  It is known that his son Thomas, married in the chapel in Somersham.  Such non- conformist registers that exist at the Huntingdon Record Office have been searched without trace of William and Sarah.

 

William's earliest recorded occupation was that of cordwainer but that job undoubtedly came to an end as a result of the industrial revolution and the newly established shoe factories in Northampton.  Subsequently, throughout his life, William worked as a brewer, a beer retailer,a higgler, a farmer with 6 acres of land and as the landlord of the White Lion public house in Somersham high Street.  He appears to have carried on with most of these jobs at the same time.  Additionally he cultivated some allotments owned by the Somersham Feoffee's Trust .  Also the Somersham Rate Books show that he owned in the 1850's - 1860's several houses or cottages in Somersham, most of them in the vicinity of the High Street.

 

In 1837 William was a Freeholder and was one of the few people who could vote for an MP.

 

Williams parents have not been established beyond doubt but they must have been either John ASPINALL and Susanna HARVEY or Thomas ASPINALL and Susanna REYNOLDS because those two couples were the only Aspinalls on record in Somersham and district at the material time who could have been Williams parents.  The fact that some of Williams descendants were given the Christian name Harvey tends to establish that his parents were in fact John and Susanna HARVEY."

1884        The William WHEATON we believe was the son of this William, married in 1884

                He married from Chaseside, Enfield, Middlesex, the home of Philip WHEATON

                son of Robert and Margaret (née PARKER) which is why we think this is the right

                marriage.  However, he gives his father's occupation as "Platelayer".

 

A William WHEATON born about 1823 appears in the Court, Land & Probate, England & Wales, Criminal Registers, 1791-1892, Huntingdonshire records for the July 1842.  Does this information apply to this William WHEATON?

William WHEATON : Offence - Larceny : Sentence - 4 months

 

Overseers Rate Books

April 1847, August 1847 William WHEATON is shown occupying a House in Yard, the property of ASPINALL with Rateable Value £2.0s.0d and Rates 2/-d.

February 1848 Mary, his mother is living with him.  The Rateable Value was still £2.0s.0d but the Rates was reduced to 1/6d

June 1848 October 1848 Rateable Value still £2. 0s. 0d with Rates increased again to 2/-d.

 

WILLIAM WHEATON c1819/1822 - 1887

Thomas WHEATON and his wife Mary (née) SEEKINGs had baptised three children before the birth of their son William.  As there was a very enthusiastic non-conformist movement in Huntingdonshire at this time, it is probable that William and his younger sisters, Ann and Hannah, were all baptised in Somersham Baptist Church whose records seem to be unobtainable.

 

William was the third son in the family, and the fourth child born although his sister Hannah had died at the age of 2½ years, probably about the same time as William's birth date.  It is likely that the family were poor, and especially so after 1829/1830 when Thomas, the father, was receiving aid from the parish.  Times must have been even harder when Thomas died at the age of 40 in 1836, but the family seems to have been quite close-knit for in 1841 all were still living with Mary, their mother, and Ann, their grandmother, in High Street North, Somersham, Huntingdonshire.  Mary was earning her living as a Washerwoman, and all three sons were Agricultural Labourers.  However, before the date of the next census in 1851 the grandmother, Ann WHEATON née GUNTON, had died in Cambridge after moving there to be near her daughters, the eldest son, Robert, had moved to Clenchwarton, Wisbech, John was probably in Manchester where he married in 1854, and William had married.

 

William had married Ann ASPINALL on the 24th June 1844 in the church of St John the Baptist in Somersham.  The couple's first home appears to have been a house in "the yard" owned by William ASPINALL, probably Ann's father. In 1847 William had been excused payment of church rates on the grounds of poverty.  He was still occupying the same house in 1848, 1850 and probably in 1851 when on the census the address is shown as 1 Asplan Yard.  Living with them in 1848 and in 1851 was William's mother Mary and the family were again excused paying rates in 1848 and 1850. 

 

 A daughter, Jane, was born to William and Ann in April 1845 just over nine months after the wedding, followed by Thomas in 1847, Eliza in 1849 and Emma in 1852.  Again, none of the children were baptised in the parish church.  In the November of 1851 the first of the tragedies faced by this family occurred when Thomas died of Scrofula at the age of 4 years, his grandmother, Mary WHEATON née SEEKINGS, being the informant of his death. 

 

The family must have moved from Asplan Yard before 1854 because at that date they were living at a water mill known as "The Water Engine in Somersham Fen".  The twenty foot wide river on which the mill was situated was crossed at this point by a plank.  On the 26th September William had gone to work leaving his wife at home with Jane, Eliza and Emma.  The children, together with another (as yet unidentified) older child, were sent to a field to glean.  At sometime during the afternoon, the two younger ones, Eliza aged 5 and Emma aged 2, decided they were going home, tried to cross the plank, and fell into the river.  William NORMAN, a shepherd to Mr Thomas EAKINS saw what had happened, and instead of trying to save the children, ran to the mill where Ann was working, and then ran across a field to fetch another man to get the children out of the river.  William, who was some distance away, heard the screams of his wife and ran to save his daughters, but was too late.  At the Inquest held on Wednesday the 27th September before the coroner, Charles MARGETTS, verdicts of Accidental Death were recorded. The Coroner rebuked William NORMAN for not trying to save the children himself, a rebuke which one newspaper considered to be "justly-merited", whilst another newspaper called him a "booby fellow" because, if he had tried to help immediately, one of the little girls might have been saved.

 

At the time of the death of her daughters Ann must have been at least six months pregnant for a son was born towards the end of the year.  He was named Thomas, and he, and his elder sister Jane, were both baptised on the 10th December 1854 in Somersham parish church.  Although it might look as if William and Ann had decided that, after the death of three children, baptising their other children was needed, their next visit to the church for such a ceremony was not until the 12th May 1861 when sons Henry (age four), William, (age two) and John (age an infant) were all baptised on the same day.  They then continued with the delay as Philip born 1863 (and registered as John!) was not baptised until 1864, and Eliza born 1865 was baptised in 1868 at three years of age.

 

William, Ann and the children obviously left the mill after the accident and moved back into Somersham itself where they lived in the Main Street in 1861 and Squire Lane (now Parkhall Road) in 1871.  However, ten years later, in 1881, William and Ann with their son John were living at Mill House.  Was this the same home where they were living in 1854 when their daughters were drowned?

 

William did not follow the occupation of Butcher undertaken by so many in his family probably because so many of them had already set up shops in Somersham and the surrounding villages and towns.  Instead, for most of his life he was an Agricultural or Farm Labourer.  At the time of the death of his daughters in 1854, he was working as an Excavator of Rivers and Drains which could have been the reason for living so near the river. On the 1884 marriage certificate of his son William he is shown as a plate layer, but there is no other evidence to support this.

 

The first of his children to marry was Jane.  As she married in 1867 in Wandsworth it could be that she had left home to go into service.  In 1881 she was living with her husband and children in 8 Bullock Road, Fulham where her brother Henry and sister Eliza were staying on the night of the census.  The next in the family to marry was Thomas.  He married Susan TURNER in Somersham in 1878 and he and his wife and family remained in Somersham until at least 1889, but then they too left Huntingdonshire to live in the Pancras and Fulham areas of London. Henry was married next, and he and his family remained in Colne (although his descendants either did not have children or they also moved to London).  Two marriages, both in 1884, were those of William and Philip, and both of them also left Huntingdonshire for Fulham originally.  The other two children, John (who had no living children) and Eliza, both married after the death of their father, and both remained in the local area.  However, as can be seen, this particular line of WHEATONs, who had lived in Somersham for over one hundred years, had, by the end of the nineteenth century all left the county of Huntingdonshire.

 

William died, age 68 years old, on the 25th March 1887 of Bronchitis and Exhaustion.  His widow, Ann, was the informant.  Ann continued to live in Somersham in Main Street, supported by her daughter, Eliza HOY, who was the informant of her death.  Ann died on the 11th July 1900 Aged 80 year of Enteritis and Syncope?

NEWSPAPER REPORTS OF THE DROWNING

OF ELIZA AND EMMA

 

From the CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS 30th September 1854

SOMERSHAM. - Distressing Occurrence. - Two little girls, of the respective ages of two and five years, daughters of William WHEATON, living at a water-mill on the bank of the Twenty-feet river, which divides the fens of Warboys and Somersham, were drowned on Tuesday last.  They had crossed the river with two elder children, who were sent to glean, and during the afternoon left their companions unobserved; and it is supposed that in attempting to recross, both fell into the stream.  The mother was at work in the mill, within a few yards of the spot, unconscious of the circumstance, until apprised by a booby fellow, who, seeing a child struggling in the water, ran to tell the woman.  Had he rendered immediate assistance the probability is that one life might have been saved; but the short interval which elapsed between seeing and doing completed the sad catastrophe.  An inquest was held on Wednesday,   Verdict, "Accidental Death"

 

From the CAMBRIDGE CHRONICLE 30th September 1854

SOMERSHAM. - Two Children Drowned. - An inquest was held on Wednesday last, the 27th inst., before C MARGETTS, Es., coroner for the Hundred of Hurstingstone, at the Water Engine, Somersham Fen, on the bodies of Eliza WHEATON, aged 5 years, and Emma WHEATON, age 2 years, children of Wm WHEATON and Ann his wife, who live in the said mill. These children were suffered to cross by a dangerous plank the twenty-foot river, and in consequence fell in and both perished.  The jury, after a patient investigation, returned a verdict of accidental death.  The first witness examined was William NORMAN, shepherd to Mr Thomas EKINS, who saw one child in the water; and the man actually ran into the mill and told the child's mother instead of getting the child out; and then ran across another field to fetch a man to get it out.  The father of the children being some distance off at work and hearing the screams of the mother, ran and got them both out, but too late to save either of them.  The man NORMAN received a justly-merited rebuke and caution from the worthy coroner.

Campaign Medals: 

Victory Medal

 

Given the information we have available it is likely that John WHEATON was entitled to the Victory medal, also called the Inter Allied Victory Medal. This medal was awarded to all who received the 1914 Star or 1914-15 Star and, with certain exceptions, to those who received the British War Medal. It was never awarded alone. These three medals were sometimes irreverently referred to as Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.

 

Eligibility for this award consisted of having been mobilised, fighting, having served in any of the theatres of operations, or at sea, between midnight 4th/5th August, 1914, and midnight, 11th/12th November, 1918. Women who served in any of the various military organisations in a theatre of operations were also eligible.

 

British War Medal

 

From the information available to us, it is very possible that John WHEATON was entitled to the British War Medal for service in World War One. This British Empire campaign medal was issued for services between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918.

 

The medal was automatically awarded in the event of death on active service before the completion of this period.

 

Service:  British Army 

Regiment:  East Surrey Regiment

East Surrey Regiment during World War 1

 Since 1815 the balance of power in Europe had been maintained by a series of treaties. In 1888 Wilhelm II was crowned ‘German Emperor and King of Prussia’ and moved from a policy of maintaining the status quo to a more aggressive position. He did not renew a treaty with Russia, aligned Germany with the declining Austro-Hungarian Empire and started to build a Navy rivalling that of Britain. These actions greatly concerned Germany’s neighbours, who quickly forged new treaties and alliances in the event of war. On 28th June 1914 Franz Ferdinand the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne was assassinated by the Bosnian-Serb nationalist group Young Bosnia who wanted pan-Serbian independence. Franz Joseph's the Austro-Hungarian Emperor (with the backing of Germany) responded aggressively, presenting Serbia with an intentionally unacceptable ultimatum, to provoke Serbia into war. Serbia agreed to 8 of the 10 terms and on the 28th July 1914 the Austro-Hungarian Empire declared war on Serbia, producing a cascade effect across Europe. Russia bound by treaty to Serbia declared war with Austro-Hungary, Germany declared war with Russia and France declared war with Germany. Germany’s army crossed into neutral Belgium in order to reach Paris, forcing Britain to declare war with Germany (due to the Treaty of London (1839) whereby Britain agreed to defend Belgium in the event of invasion). By the 4th August 1914 Britain and much of Europe were pulled into a war which would last 1,566 days, cost 8,528,831 lives and 28,938,073 casualties or missing on both sides.

Gallantry Awards: 

Military Medal

 

This Level 3 Gallantry Medal was established during the First World War on the 25th March 1916 and introduced in the London Gazette issue 29535, (back dated to 1914) to personnel of the British Army and other services, and personnel of Commonwealth countries, below commissioned rank. It was the other ranks' equivalent to the Military Cross (M.C.), (which was awarded to Commissioned Officers and, rarely, to Warrant Officers, who could also be awarded the M.M.).

 

The military decoration was awarded to H Wheaton for acts of gallantry and devotion to duty under fire or for individual or associated acts of bravery which were insufficient to merit the Distinguished Conduct Medal.

 

Conferment of the medal was announced in the London Gazette and H Wheaton earned the right to add the letters M.M. to his name. 

Gazette Info:  Gazette Issue 30364. M.M. His Majesty the King has been graciously pleased to award the Military Medal for bravery in the Field. 

Gazette Date:  30/10/1917 

 

Victory Medal

 

Given the information we have available it is likely that H Wheaton was entitled to the Victory medal, also called the Inter Allied Victory Medal. This medal was awarded to all who received the 1914 Star or 1914-15 Star and, with certain exceptions, to those who received the British War Medal. It was never awarded alone. These three medals were sometimes irreverently referred to as Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.

 

Eligibility for this award consisted of having been mobilised, fighting, having served in any of the theatres of operations, or at sea, between midnight 4th/5th August, 1914, and midnight, 11th/12th November, 1918. Women who served in any of the various military organisations in a theatre of operations were also eligible.

 

Campaign

British War Medal

 

From the information available to us, it is very possible that H WHEATON was entitled to the British War Medal for service in World War One. This British Empire campaign medal was issued for services between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918.

 

The medal was automatically awarded in the event of death on active service before the completion of this period

PHILLIP WHEATON 1863 - 1948

Much of the information about Philip and Emma was told to us mainly by Kenneth and Gladys SLACK, and also the late Mrs Min FIELD.  We are very grateful to them for all their help and interest.

       

Phillip (or Philip) WHEATON was born in Somersham, Huntingdonshire on the 15th May 1863.  He was William and Ann's ninth child, and sixth son, although one son and two daughters had died before Philip was born.  When Philip's father registered the birth he gave the registrar the name of John for his new son, although this name had been given to a child born two years previously.  This mistake caused Philip problems later in his life when he applied for a pension!

 

William and Ann were not all that prompt in having their children baptised and the new baby was one and a half years old when he was given the correct name of Philip in the church of St John the Baptist in Somersham on the 11th December 1864. 

 

In 1861 the WHEATON family were living in Main Street South Side in Somersham, but by 1871 had moved to Squire Lane (now Parkhall Road).  Philip was already at work at the age of eight,  engaged in "Field Work" and by 1881 he was lodging at the Woolvey Farm in Warboys where he was a Farm Servant.

 

Woolvey Farm is just over the hill from the village of Warboys itself where Emma HYDE lived with her family in the High Street.  Perhaps the couple had met whilst walking in the fields between the village and Woolvey Farm.  However, before they married, it is probable that in 1884 Philip had either moved to Enfield in Middlesex, or was staying there with a cousin, another Philip, son of Robert and Margaret (née PARKER) WHEATON. Nevertheless, "our" Philip obviously returned to Warboys because on the 29th July 1884 Philip and Emma HYDE were married in the church of St Mary Magdalene in Warboys, Huntingdonshire with Emma's sister Annie and Annie's future husband, John LAWRENCE as witnesses.

 

At this time Philip was still working as a Farm, or Agricultural Labourer and the couple were living in Warboys where a few months after their marriage their first child was born prematurely, living for only half an hour.  In 1887 a daughter, Florence was born, and two years later, a son Ernest.  It must have been about this time that Philip decided that farm work in Warboys was not going to make his fortune so he walked to London to see if he could find work there.  It would seem that Emma and the children must have followed soon after for the baby, Ernest, died at twenty-one months of congestion of the lungs and acute bronchitis at Burrard Road, Hampstead, Middlesex in January 1891. 

 

Philip's  brother Thomas, and his wife's future brother-in-law, John LAWRENCE may have accompanied him to London because in April 1891 Philip, Emma and their daughter, Florence, were still at 38 Burrard Road, and also living in the same property were Thomas and his wife and family, and John LAWRENCE, all from Warboys.  Philip did not stay long in Hampstead, however, as by the August of the same year, when daughter Priscilla was born, the family had moved to 20 Protheroe Road, Fulham, to be followed by yet another move by 1893 when at the time of the birth of Ernest they were at 8 Rylston Terrace, still in Fulham. Again, they did not stay long at that address for in 1895 the family were as 23 Lizban Street for the birth of another daughter, Ada (known as "Bob").

 

Lizban Road was in Blackheath, Kent, where they had moved with "Aunty Ginny and Bob" so the family were gradually moving out of London, and they moved even further when Philip found out that the building of houses had begun in Whitehall Road in Grays, in Essex for he was able to obtain the first plot.  In 1897, whilst they were waiting for the Whitehall house to be built they lived at 25 Maple Road where another daughter, Minnie, was born.  

 

It was at this address, ten years later, that Emma had her last children.  During her pregnancy Emma had a miscarriage but she was told that a baby remained.  There were, however, two babies who were born two months early on the evening of the 13 January 1907.  Both were not very strong and Frank died two days later.  Philip and Emma thought there was something wrong with their other baby, William Alphonso, and held the baby up to lights and lanterns to test his sight before they found he had been born blind.  It was thought he would not survive but Emma carried him around in her apron and a year later he was strong enough to have an eye removed.  William grew up to play the piano and to have a beautiful voice.

 

 Life must have been very hard for Emma, for besides having to bring up a blind baby, their first born daughter, Florence, was backward.  Emma would not let her go to school, and instead looked after her, and taught her at home.  And, as well as looking after her growing family Emma was also a Dressmaker, advertising in local Directories for many years.  Her youngest daughter, Min, can remember helping pick up the pins, putting them in a pin cushion, threading needles and whipping seams as her mother worked.  Emma used to make Min's clothes.  Annie (née HYDE) LAWRENCE worked in a factory in Kettering and used to provide the tweed material.  Min could remember a fawn light summer-weight coat with a mock ocelot collar and cloche hat.  Emma was very strong willed and ambitious.  She was nervous of noises, and her husband called her a "messer".  Emma used to take Min to Kettering, together with her own mother, Rebecca (née MARSHALL) HYDE, to see other members of the family.  There they met Uncle Jack HYDE and George "with the apples".  Emma also used to take the family to the fair, also with Gran-Becky who wore a black bonnet decorated with violets.  Gran-Becky was also there at Christmas time when the meat was carved on the table.  Min's memories of the home in Grays included a kitchen range, and a leather sofa with buttons.

 

Whilst living at Whitehall Road, Emma saw that land was for sale in Rectory Road.  Two men were selling 1½ acres so she sent her daughter, Min, to the Globe Works where Philip was working and when he returned they went to the agents, Pearson and Sons in Orsett Road, Grays for the land, and to the Co-op Building Society for a loan!

 

Although the plans were properly drawn up, it was Philip who designed the bungalow that was to be built on the land at 229 Rectory Road.  In addition he was his own bricklayer and carpenter, collecting the timber from a yard in Barking where the merchant would provide the wood for the window frames and doors according to the information on the plan.  Philip pebble-dashed the outside of the bungalow with the help of Min.  When the chimney was finished off they flew the Union Jack and called the bungalow Colne Villa, probably to bring back memories of life in Huntingdonshire.

 

The garden had to be productive and it was planted with peas (again with Min's help).  There was a stall in the field from which they sold their produce while Philip, accompanied by Bill (William), would take the vegetables he grew to market in baskets on a Coster Cart drawn by a spirited pony called Molly.  Previously Philip had visited Romford Market with a rope and bought the Dartmoor pony intending to lead it home.  However, the rope broke, so he had to ride her instead.

 

Philip was a hard worker all his life.  He was a very patient and contented man, a "sober sides" and a good provider.  When in Grays, Essex he worked at the Globe Works as a stationary engine driver for £2. 10s. 0d a week.  When he went to work he used to take a pint jug of beer, bread and cheese and a pickled onion.

 

On Sundays he used to go out with his pals and Emma used to have "a pleasant Sunday afternoon" at a meeting for Mothers and Children although on all but one occasion she was at home, where Philip expected her to be, on his return.  Sometimes, after being out with his friends, Philip would come home rather merry, but one day he listened to the Salvation Army and from that Sunday he gave up drink until he gave up work.  Something he suffered from for some time was digestive problems, but found a cure when he eventually had his one remaining tooth out!

 

Philip and Emma's first grandson, Eric William, was born in 1911 to Ernest and Beatrice JACKSON.  Ernest was "missing presumed dead" in the Battle of the Somme, six months after marrying Beatrice at St Mark's Church at Victoria Dock, West Ham, Essex.  Although brought up by his mother and her family, Eric WHEATON, the son of Ernest, knew that Philip and Emma were his grandparents, and it was whilst they were at Rectory Road that he went to see them.  They were very proud of him, and glad that he had visited them.

 

After the war Priscilla, Minnie and "Bob" all married leaving Florence and William at home with their parents.  During the Second World War Philip, Emma, Florence and William went to stay in Warboys with their relatives, the BLACKMANs and the HYDEs.  When they returned to Grays they lived at 2 Roy Walk, a "prefab" on the Blackshots Estate, Little Thurrock.  It was at this address that Philip died in November 1948, and then Emma, two years later in December 1950.

Information from Min FIELD

"Mum gave Philip a medal at the time Ernest was killed.  It was enamel in the shape of a miniature iron cross with a "W" in the centre" - which is what my notes say.  However, it is now too late to ask Min to explain more fully.

 

We do have a miniature iron cross with a "W" in the centre which was given to us by Philip FIELD, so we assume this is the same item.  Philip FIELD wrote that his mother gave him the medal about 1986 and told him that her mother received it from the Army shortly after Ernest was killed in 1916.  "However, from the date on the medal being 1914 this cannot be true as a supposedly "death" medal.  I think that it is probably a German miniature (or dress) Iron Cross, given to someone ....." (rest of letter now lost!)

 

We did show the "medal" to an expert who thought that perhaps it belonged to a German soldier and had been acquired by someone on the battle field, and then, because it had the initial "W" in the centre, it was given to Ernest.  Being found among his belongings the army then returned it to Emma.  We shall never know!

Victory Medal

 

victory medalGiven the information we have available it is likely that James Richard JELLEY was entitled to the Victory medal, also called the Inter Allied Victory Medal. This medal was awarded to all who received the 1914 Star or 1914-15 Star and, with certain exceptions, to those who received the British War Medal. It was never awarded alone. These three medals were sometimes irreverently referred to as Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.

 

Eligibility for this award consisted of having been mobilised, fighting, having served in any of the theatres of operations, or at sea, between midnight 4th/5th August, 1914, and midnight, 11th/12th November, 1918. Women who served in any of the various military organisations in a theatre of operations were also eligible.

 

British War Medal

 

british war medalFrom the information available to us, it is very possible that James Richard JELLEY was entitled to the British War Medal for service in World War One. This British Empire campaign medal was issued for services between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918.

 

The medal was automatically awarded in the event of death on active service before the completion of this period.

 

Service:  British Army

Regiment:  Royal Fusiliers (London regiment)

 

Royal Fusiliers (London Regiment) during World War 1

Royal Fusiliers (London Regiment)

Since 1815 the balance of power in Europe had been maintained by a series of treaties. In 1888 Wilhelm II was crowned ‘German Emperor and King of Prussia’ and moved from a policy of maintaining the status quo to a more aggressive position. He did not renew a treaty with Russia, aligned Germany with the declining Austro-Hungarian Empire and started to build a Navy rivalling that of Britain. These actions greatly concerned Germany’s neighbours, who quickly forged new treaties and alliances in the event of war. On 28th June 1914 Franz Ferdinand the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne was assassinated by the Bosnian-Serb nationalist group Young Bosnia who wanted pan-Serbian independence. Franz Joseph's the Austro-Hungarian Emperor (with the backing of Germany) responded aggressively, presenting Serbia with an intentionally unacceptable ultimatum, to provoke Serbia into war. Serbia agreed to 8 of the 10 terms and on the 28th July 1914 the Austro-Hungarian Empire declared war on Serbia, producing a cascade effect across Europe. Russia bound by treaty to Serbia declared war with Austro-Hungary, Germany declared war with Russia and France declared war with Germany. Germany’s army crossed into neutral Belgium in order to reach Paris, forcing Britain to declare war with Germany (due to the Treaty of London (1839) whereby Britain agreed to defend Belgium in the event of invasion). By the 4th August 1914 Britain and much of Europe were pulled into a war which would last 1,566 days, cost 8,528,831 lives and 28,938,073 casualties or missing on both sides.

 

The Royal Fusiliers raised an additional 76 battalions and were awarded 80 Battle Honours and 12 Victoria Crosses (two of which were the first awarded in the war for the Battle of Mons and the last two of the war in North Russia) losing 15,600 men during the course of the war. In 1914 1,600 members of the Stock exchange joined the Regiment to form the Stock Exchange Battalion, 400 of which were killed during the war. Five Battalions of the Regiment (the 38th to the 42nd) served as the Jewish Legion in Palestine and many contributed to the founding of the State of Israel in 1948.

Campaign Medals: 

Victory Medal

 

Given the information we have available it is likely that Thomas Stanley Alfred WICKENS was entitled to the Victory medal, also called the Inter Allied Victory Medal. This medal was awarded to all who received the 1914 Star or 1914-15 Star and, with certain exceptions, to those who received the British War Medal. It was never awarded alone. These three medals were sometimes irreverently referred to as Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.

 

Eligibility for this award consisted of having been mobilised, fighting, having served in any of the theatres of operations, or at sea, between midnight 4th/5th August, 1914, and midnight, 11th/12th November, 1918. Women who served in any of the various military organisations in a theatre of operations were also eligible.

 

British War Medal

 

From the information available to us, it is very possible that Thomas Stanley Alfred WICKENS was entitled to the British War Medal for service in World War One. This British Empire campaign medal was issued for services between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918.

 

The medal was automatically awarded in the event of death on active service before the completion of this period.

 

Service:  British Army 

Regiment:  east surrey regiment

East Surrey Regiment during World War 1

 Since 1815 the balance of power in Europe had been maintained by a series of treaties. In 1888 Wilhelm II was crowned ‘German Emperor and King of Prussia’ and moved from a policy of maintaining the status quo to a more aggressive position. He did not renew a treaty with Russia, aligned Germany with the declining Austro-Hungarian Empire and started to build a Navy rivalling that of Britain. These actions greatly concerned Germany’s neighbours, who quickly forged new treaties and alliances in the event of war. On 28th June 1914 Franz Ferdinand the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne was assassinated by the Bosnian-Serb nationalist group Young Bosnia who wanted pan-Serbian independence. Franz Joseph's the Austro-Hungarian Emperor (with the backing of Germany) responded aggressively, presenting Serbia with an intentionally unacceptable ultimatum, to provoke Serbia into war. Serbia agreed to 8 of the 10 terms and on the 28th July 1914 the Austro-Hungarian Empire declared war on Serbia, producing a cascade effect across Europe. Russia bound by treaty to Serbia declared war with Austro-Hungary, Germany declared war with Russia and France declared war with Germany. Germany’s army crossed into neutral Belgium in order to reach Paris, forcing Britain to declare war with Germany (due to the Treaty of London (1839) whereby Britain agreed to defend Belgium in the event of invasion). By the 4th August 1914 Britain and much of Europe were pulled into a war which would last 1,566 days, cost 8,528,831 lives and 28,938,073 casualties or missing on both sides.

Addresses

1881        43 Dacre Street, Lee, London.

                Charles is shown as Charles A PRAM  Scholar born Lee, Kent, his parents were James

                C MUSTO (27) born Middlesex, London, and Sarah A MUSTO (27) born Kent. Siblings

                born Lee, Kent.  Living with the family was Emily M PRAM (19) sister in law 

                Dressmaker born Walworth, Surrey and a Boarder Eliza KIRBY (26) born Lee, Kent.

                Hanover Square district, London. On the 1881 Census James and Sarah are shown

                as married with a  child Emily R MUSTO aged 7 months born Lee, Kent, but there are
