Campaign Medals:
1914 Star

The 1914 Star was instituted in 1917 for service ashore in France and Flanders between 5 August and 22 November 1914. In 1919 a clasp bearing the above dates was authorised and given to those individuals who had actually been under fire between the prescribed dates, popularly known as the 'Mons star' there were 378,000 awarded in total.

The 1914/15 Star was instituted in 1918 and awarded to those individuals who saw service in France and Flanders from 23 November 1914 to 31 December 1915, and to those individuals who saw service in any other operational theatre from 5 August 1914 to 31 December 1915.

A person who served during the period of 05/08/1914 and 31/12/1915 would have been awarded one or the other of the 'stars' (ie either the 1914 star which has '1914' on the scroll OR the 1914-15 star which has '1914-15' on the scroll, NOT both. 2,366,000 awarded in total.

Victory Medal

Given the information we have available it is likely that George 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 George 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: Worcestershire Regiment
Worcestershire 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.

The Regiment raised 21 Battalions and was awarded 72 Battle Honours and 8 Victoria Crosses losing 9,460 men during the course of the war.

In July and August 1914, Europe went to war. The Regiment already had 8 Battalions - 4 Regular (with one in Burma, one in Egypt and two at home), 2 Special Reserve (Militia) and 2 Territorial Army. During the war another 14 Battalions were raised, mainly from volunteers, making a total of 22.

Twelve of the Battalions served overseas, in France and Belgium, Italy, Gallipoli, Mesopotamia and across the Balkans. These were made up of volunteers, until casualties led to less voluntary recruits. In 1916 the Military Services Act was passed. This started the conscription of all able-bodied men under the age of 45.

The other ten Battalions were usually made up of men too old or unfit to serve overseas. Some were used to train recruits and others for transporting ammunition and supplies from factories and stores to the ports. Some were on Home Defence - protecting Britain from air raids, sea attacks and preventing spies from landing.

Casualties
9,463 of them were killed and countless more wounded.

WHEATON, Daniel C (b. 11 DEC 1889, d. 30 SEP 1951)
Note: Addresses
1900 Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, USA
Living with them was grandmother Clara BUSH (63) widow born New York, USA
1910 Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, USA as Don C WHEATON; mother Rose WHEATON who
was living as sister-in-law with William F NAGEL (36) Foreman Rail Road Freight born
Germany, and his wife Mae R (34) born Ohio, USA who we assume was Rose WHEATON's
sister. There were also William and Mae's adopted daughters Rosalie (13) born Ohio, USA and
Clara (6) born Illinois, USA. Boarders were Anna DUNBAR (45) Dressmaker by the day, Howard
PALMER (23) Stenographer and Howard CLINE (21) Clerk Rail Road Office, all three single and
born Ohio, USA
1920 Not found

In Daniel WHEATON's Will he mentioned "Daniel, the only son of Leonard".
In Steve PYENTA's records he shows the son of Leonard as Earl with a "?"
I had assumed that this could have been a misread of the name Daniel
Then Donald ROSS shows a Donald as the son of Leonard with the additional information that he taught at Kenyon College.
Further clarification is obviously needed.
However, we now find that the 1900 census shows Rose's son as definitely Daniel C WHEATON.
But then again on the 1910 he is shown as Don C
So we have assumed that Earl was a misread, and that Daniel and Donald are the same person.
And now on the familysearch site he is Don C

FREESTONE, Thomas (b. BET OCT AND DEC 1849, d. BET JAN AND MAR 1924)
Note: Addresses
1851 37 Gold Street, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
1861 The Fleet, Balcock? Street, Bassingbourn, Cambridgeshire
1871 Norton Street, Baldock, Hertfordshire
Boarder with Catherine SIDLEY or TIDLEY (52), Widow, Baker born Bramslow,
Huntingdonshire
1881 Wilton Cottage, Shenley, Hertfordshire
1891 Wilton House, Shenley, Hertfordshire
1901 Cottages, Shenley, Hertfordshire
1911 Shenley, Barnet, Hertfordshire
Living with them was grandson Frederick FREESTONE (11) School

Information from Margaret TAYLOR 6/2/2006
A cousin did some research years ago and found out that Thomas was an illegitimate foundling born in a workhouse in Cambridge where he was taught the baking trade. This information came long ago before computers made research more reliable. (Note from JKW: HOWEVER, I have now received information which says this was not the case. See "Information from Wheaton FREESTONE" below)

My father Robert 12th of the 13 children told me a lot about Thomas but not that he was illegitimate. It seems that Thomas came to Shenley and worked as Baker for the SCALES family, and brought up all his family working for them but when he, Thomas, was 50 the SCALES's son took over the business. Thomas was out of a job with I think 5 children still at home. My Father said that Thomas was held in such regard by Ranks the Millers that they backed him and built a bake house, installed ovens etc and granddad was away. He was joined in the business by his last 3 sons Wheaton, Robert (my father) and James (Note from JKW: See "Information from Wheaton FREESTONE" below). The Family opened businesses in two nearby small towns, and the next generation carried on until the late fifties

I have always been interested in Thomas and wanted to find out more about him. My father called him a scholar, because when he wasn't working he had his head in a book. I said where did he get his books, and it seems that one of the local gentry allowed him the use of his library. From this he went in for an exam in competition with 30 school masters and came top. The certificate exists and was left to my brother who seems to have lost it, imagine!! I am trying to locate it. I think this must have been the beginning of the Workers Education Association. There was I think, among the upper middle classes, a wish to educate the deserving poor. Anyway he went on to become involved in politics and was proposed as socialist M P with Kier Hardy and went to London to stand, but returned to Shenley a bit shook up. My dad said It felt a bit too revolutionary for him; he decided he was a Liberal.

One other thing that might interest you is that Wheaton is scattered through the family as a first or second fore name The only ones I know of for sure are my fathers older brother and his son but my father talked about this strange Christian name in the family. He said it was because the family were farmers and millers in the Cambridge fens for generations thus are legends made!!

Information from Wheaton FREESTONE 28.6.2007
Thomas FREESTONE was not illegitimate or anything. He was employed by the workhouse as a baker. Second paragraph basically true except for name James, that name should be Ernest John (nickname Jainey). Yes, Ranks did loan money to start the business. Thomas had to commit the business to always buy flour from Ranks.

Method used to repay loan:
Every sack (bag) of flour (1cwt.) supplied had a deposit on it. When the sacks were returned (empty), the deposit was not returned but used to repay the loan over a number of years.

Yes, Thomas was scholarly and did borrow books probably from the RICHEE family who were farmers, and who in later years did start a library for local people. He used his education to teach young unemployed men of the village to help them on their way in life. My aunts tell me he did dabble in local politics but no more than that, possibly attending some rallies.

The last paragraph about WHEATON name we know the origin of that. In my searches of FREESTONES I think I may have got back to the 1770s when they were farmers in Earsham, Norfolk.
