1838        On Marriage Certificate for son George Abel, George is shown as Geo. Thos. JACKSON dead.

On of George Abel's brothers had been called George Thomas although he must have died before George Abel was born.  George/George Thomas died in 1826.  Perhaps by 1838 George Abel was uncertain about his father's name

There was a Mary Ann JACKSON aged 32 [so born 1819) born in Gravesend, Kent living as a servant at Bennet Street, Hanover Square, Middlesex.  We have wondered why George Abel JACKSON and Sarah COX married in London when both came from Gravesend.  Perhaps there was some connection with this Mary Ann JACKSON, who could be the one in this record.

Campaign Medals: 

Victory Medal

 

Given the information we have available it is likely that Harold JACKSON  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 Harold JACKSON  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.

Probably actually born in 1878 and changed details for joining the Police.

Notes for Leonard MILLEN:

Information from Jeff Sechiari 12/11/2007

Cecelia went to live in Gravesend with Reg and Edie WATSON for much of her childhood.

This was reputedly because she was an unruly child and at one point burnt her brother Frank with a poker - the last straw!  It was always suggested that this was why she was so different to the other children - she was very outgoing.

ERNEST WHEATON, 1893 - 1916

Most of the information about Ernest was told to us by Kenneth and Gladys SLACK and the late Mrs Min FIELD

Ernest WHEATON was born on the 29th June 1893 at 8 Rylston Terrace, Fulham, Middlesex.  He was actually the third son of Philip and Emma but both boys had died, Phillip within thirty minutes of his birth, and the first Ernest in 1891 at the age of twenty one months. 

 

When he was born Ernest already had two sisters, Florence and Ada (known as Bob), and another sister, Minnie (Min) was born two years later.  Ernest had to wait another ten years for a brother when twins William Alphonso and Frank were born, but Frank died within hours and William was blind.  There was also the ten year gap in their ages, so probably Ernest would have found it difficult to play "boys games" with William.

 

Ernest did not grow up in Fulham where he was born as the family had moved to Blackheath by 1895, and then to different addresses in Grays, Essex.

 

His sister, Min, remembered Ernest as being very kind, and in particular recalls  a blue elastic beaded bracelet which he gave her as a birthday present.

 

BATTLE OF THE SOMME

The 9th Battalion of the Essex Regiment was the first of the Service or "Kitchener" Battalions to be especially recruited for the war and it was formed on the 26th August 1914 at Risborough Barracks, Shorncliffe.  The C.O, Adjutant and several officers and N.C.Os were from the Regular Essex Regiment so a "valuable spirit was unstilled" in the men at an early stage.  By the 9th September the Battalion was 2,000 strong and half of the men were then used to form the 10th Battalion although as groups of friends had enlisted together, official thinking was that they should stay together.   In February 1915 the Battalion marched in stages from Shorncliffe to Aldershot via Ashford, Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Redhill, Leatherhead and Woking arriving in Aldershot on the 1st May 1915.  Here the Battalion spent a month completing its musketry training and left the U.K. for Boulogne on the 29th May.  In June the Battalion was inducted into trench warfare in easy stages and took its first tour of front line duty on the 7th July.  Ernest WHEATON survived the Battle of Loos in September 1915, and the "scrap" at the Craters of Noyelles in March 1916, but he fell on the third day of the Somme Battles.

 

Ovillers la Boisselle is a village, just north of the Amiens to Bapaume road and to the east of Albert.  It was protected by rising ground and parapets which were part of the enemy's powerful preparations.  There were three Brigades in the attack and it was considered that success could only be achieved if all made progress at the same time.  To "prepare" the Germans for the battle ahead their lines were bombarded for eight days before the first British advance.

 

On the 1st July 1916 the 9th Battalion of the Essex Regiment was held in reserve at Hénencourt Wood.  Meanwhile the attack had began early as the final bombardment was just before 7.30 a.m.  At that time a brigade began crossing no man's land, which in places was about eight hundred yards wide, to be met by appalling gun fire.   The first wave of soldiers managed to reach the German lines, but in the face of the heavy German gunfire, they were held back, and so became mixed up with several of the following waves of men.  In the confusion the British soldiers were driven out of the German lines.  A second brigade were caught in cross fire and had to withdraw several times.  Similarly the third brigade was unable to make progress, losing many of their leading officers.

 

Ernest worked as an overhead crane driver at the Globe Works where his father also worked.  Their lunch used to be taken to them by Min, who had to climb the steps of the crane to reach them.  When there, Ernest would show her the controls and teach her how to work the crane!

 

He was a keen footballer and played for Grays Athletics.  One particular occasion is well remembered when they played the boys on the training ship, the s.s."Exmouth".  It is not recalled because of the score, but because Ernest broke his leg.

 

At some time before 1911 Ernest met Beatrice JACKSON, and their son, Eric William WHEATON was born on the 10th April of that year, although his birth was not registered until 1930.  In his early years Eric was brought up by his mother's family, and was known to the WHEATON children as Eric JACKSON.  However, the families must have been friendly as Ernest's sister, Priscilla, was engaged to Harold JACKSON.

 

At the beginning of the war Min worked as a housemaid and her employer frequently asked her about her brother Ernest, mentioning the war, talking about enlisting, and referring to the issuing of white feathers.  Min passed the comments on to her brother Ernest who, despite his mother trying to persuade him to stay at home, enlisted in Grays, Essex.

 

By 1916 he was Private 23901 in the III Essex Regiment.  It is probable that he was on the point of embarking for France when on the 15 January 1916, at St Mark, Victoria Docks, West Ham, Essex, he married Beatrice by licence.  The witnesses to the marriage were probably her father, Alfred JACKSON, and her sister Mabel CROUCH. Six months later, having been promoted to Lance Corporal in the 9th Battalion of the Essex Regiment, and having fought in France and Flanders, Ernest was killed on the 3 July 1916, probably  on the first day his regiment was involved in the Battle of the Somme.

 

Emma, Ernest's mother was of course very bitter when the telegram from the War Office arrived stating that Ernest was missing presumed killed, one telegram which was soon followed by another reporting the death of Harold JACKSON.  Ernest was not found, and his name is on the Thiepval Memorial in the Anglo-French Cemetery in France.

 

A day later the 9th Battalion of the Essex Regiment moved up to the front line and although there was no attack Ovillers was still bombarded in order that the enemy would think that an advance was imminent.  However, it is thought that the German forces either withdrew from their trenches, or sat safely in strong, deeply cut, dugouts.

 

The attack toward Ovillers on the 3rd July began at 2.15 a.m. where the targets were the same as on the 1st.  The digging of trenches in no man's land had been carried out in the time between the two attacks in an attempt to lessen the distance between the two armies.  The 35th Brigade (of which Ernest was a part) was to the right "with the 6th R Berks. and 7th Suffolks in front and on their left was the 37 Bde. with the 6th Queen's and 6th R.W. Kents.  The extreme left of the Division's line was held by the 36th Bde. who were to cover the flank with the help of a smoke discharge."    The men began their advance about 3.15 a.m. (when our First World War expert thinks Ernest was probably killed).   By 9 a.m. it was being reported that the attack had failed.  The reasons for the failure were later given as inadequate flank protection and the lack of surprise.

 

On the 3rd July there was 2mm of rain, the temperature was between 55 and 68 degrees, and there were thunderstorms around.

 

This is the day on which it is estimated that a total of 60,000 men lost their lives, one of them being Ernest WHEATON, so he obviously took no part in subsequent events.  On the 8th July the Battalion was in action again, and advanced two hundred yards but lost their Commanding Officer, Major C I RYAN.  This event was followed by a withdrawal to Albert-Bouzincourt on the 9th, and  following action on the 10th, 11th, 21st, 22nd, 25th, 26th and 30th July, the Battalion were again back in Albert-Bouzincourt on the 8th August.  The Battalion continued to see action in various sectors until the 22nd October.  The Battle ended on the 18th November when the armies were faced by the onset of winter and exhaustion.   In all the Battle of the Somme lasted 140 days and a total of 400,000 men were killed, 125,000 of them from all parts of the British Empire as well as the United Kingdom.

 

By the time it was possible to search for the missing all traces of 72,085 men who had died in this particular sector of the battlefield were lost.  Over 90% of the names on the Thiepval memorial to the missing are men who lost their lives from July to November 1916.  In addition to the memorial there are three hundred French and three hundred British graves in the Anglo-French cemetery.  The monument stands in 40 acres of ground, on a ridge overlooking the battlefield, and is the largest built by the War Graves Commission.  It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and is 150 feet high.  It is mainly built of brick, but the sixteen piers on which the names are engraved are of Portland stone.  "It was built between 1928 and 1932 and was unveiled by the Prince of Wales in the presence of the President of France on the 31st July 1932."

 

Paul WHEATON, the great grandson of Ernest, and Lorraine (now his wife) visited the memorial.  It can be seen from quite a distance, and Paul has taken a considerable number of photographs as they approached the site, until he was able to take one of the name of Ernest WHEATON.

Campaign Medals: 

Victory Medal

 

Given the information we have available it is likely that Ernest 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 Ernest 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. 

 

 Essex Regiment

Essex 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 30 Battalions and was awarded 62 Battle Honours and 1 Victoria Crosse, losing 8,860 men during the course of the war.

Notes for William Henry MILLER:

We were given not information about William Henry MILLER other than he had been married before.  We have not looked for more details until now (January 2015).  The only lead we have is that on the certificate for his married to Beatrice WHEATON née JACKSON his father was shown as William Louis MILLER.  Given that information a search was made for a William Henry/William H with father William Louis/ William L.  Such information was found and all the details entered for William Henry MILLER have been done so on the basis that we found the right census information. Details are therefore not proven and further research should be undertaken before accepting the information entered here.

ERIC WILLIAM WHEATON 1911 - 1991

Eric William WHEATON was born on the 10th April 1911 at 18 Cromwell Road, Grays, Essex, the home of his mother, Beatrice JACKSON, who omitted to register her son's birth.  This was not remedied until the time of Eric's marriage in 1930 when the entry in the Birth Index, and on his certificate, indicates that the information was recorded "by order of the Registrar General".  His parents, Ernest WHEATON and Beatrice JACKSON, did ultimately marry in 1916, but Ernest was already in the army, the marriage took place at a dock yard church probably just before Ernest was embarking for France, where he was "missing presumed dead" in the Battle of the Somme six months later.  So, Eric was brought up in Grays by his mother and her family and knew very little of his WHEATON ancestors, although, apparently he did visit his grandparents, Philip and Emma on one occasion. 

 

In 1916 Beatrice, and probably Eric, were living in Park Street, in Grays, and in 1918, Eric's mother, Beatrice remarried to William Henry MILLER, a widower.  Eric would have been about seven years old when this event took place, but it appears that he did not get on with his step-father, and as soon as he was able he became a steward on a P & O Liner on the Australian route.  Whether he actually "ran away to sea" we are not certain, but the experience certainly made him, all the rest of his life, want to return to that part of the world.

 

By 1929 he must have returned to Essex as he and Gladys May CROSS, the youngest daughter of William and Florence (née JEWELL) CROSS were engaged in August 1929 and married in 1930.  The ceremony took place at the Register Office in Rochford, Essex, witnessed by Eric's mother, Beatrice MILLER, and Harold and Lilian CROSS, brother and sister of the bride.  Eric and his Gladys began their married life probably at "White Heather", a guest house situated at 167 Eastern Esplanade, Southend, Essex which was run by William CROSS and his family.  Later they moved away to 71 Sandringham Road, still in Southend.  Three children were born to Eric and Gladys, Valerie Daphne in 1931, Peter Ernest in 1933 and Dennis Ian in 1936.  All were born at Southend Municipal Hospital in Southend, which is where Peter also died within hours of his birth of Anencephaly.

 

Eric and his young family had moved at some time to Nelson Road, Leigh on Sea, Essex, but at the beginning of the war, in about 1940, all those living in Southend and district were told to pack a suitcase and were given only a short time to leave the area.  Whether Eric was still living in Southend at this time, or if he had already joined the forces, we are uncertain.   The Company for which Lilian CROSS, the sister of Gladys May (née CROSS) WHEATON, worked, Norris Warming (ledger section) bought a property at Stonecot Hill, in Morden, Surrey in case of emergencies.  This house was offered to Lilian and her sister's family, and in 1940 Gladys, the children, Valerie, Dennis, and "Aunty Lily" moved to Surrey.  They eventually found another house to rent at 50 Palmer Avenue, North Cheam, Surrey. 

 

After leaving the P & O Line and marrying Gladys, Eric had worked as a Corporation Gardener, Groundsman and Parks Gardener for Southend Council.  During World War II he was in the Royal Air Force as an Airfield Controller at a fighter station.  At some time during the war he was stationed in Holland and on one leave brought home a wooden letter opener, the handle of which was painted in the shape of a Dutch girl in national costume and a purse-wallet for his son, Dennis.

 

After the war, Eric's sister-in-law, Lilian CROSS, was able to help Eric find employment with Norris Warming Company where he became chauffeur to the Managing Director, Mr CARAMEL whose car was a Humber Super Snipe.  At this time it would appear that the relationship between Eric and his wife, Gladys, was not a very happy one. As he often took Mr CARAMEL to Birmingham Eric was able to visit the home of his brother-in-law, Harold Victor CROSS, and his wife Gladys Emily (née WILLIAMS) known as Babs.  We are told that the atmosphere in this home contrasted with that of his own home and made him more discontented with the situation as regards his own family.  Harold CROSS died in 1948, and two years later Eric had decided to leave Cheam and make his home, with Babs CROSS in Bhylls Crescent in Wolverhampton. His son, Dennis, remained in Cheam with his mother and Aunty Lily.  The knowledge that her husband had left her devastated Gladys May, and on the 22nd January 1951 she committed suicide at the house at 50 Palmer Avenue, Cheam.  Just under three months later Eric and Babs were married in the Register Office in Wolverhampton with friends and relations of Babs acting as witnesses.

 

Some time before 1954 Eric and Babs moved to Stourport-on-Severn where they took over the running of the Swan Hotel, Eric as Manager, and Babs as Cook.  Probably about 1957 they moved to 115 Stubby Lane, Wednesfield, near Wolverhampton, Staffordshire where they continued to live until 1977.  Whilst there Eric had several jobs: Stocktaker, Salesman, Clerk and Cost Clerk, mainly for different Breweries.  Later he was a Progress Clerk working for an Iron and Steel Works. 

 

When he married Babs, Eric had doubled his family, as his niece and nephew, Pamela and Victor CROSS, became his step children. Whilst living in Stourport-on-Severn in 1954, Eric's daughter, Valerie, had married Harold WOOD, with her father and her brother Dennis as witnesses.  Valerie and Harold provided Eric with two grandsons, Ian and Peter, before Valerie died of cancer in 1962.  During her illness one or other of the two boys spent much time with their grandparents.  Step-daughter, Pamela CROSS married Roger FARLEY in January 1960, and with their three sons decided in 1967 to emigrate to Australia.  In 1960 son, Dennis, married Jean TERRY, and in 1963 step-son, Victor CROSS married Margaret DAVIS.  These two marriages produced a total of another three grandsons and two granddaughters for Eric and Babs.

 

After his step-daughter, Pamela (née CROSS) FARLEY and her family had emigrated to Adelaide in Australia, Eric became more and more interested in travelling to the other side of the world again, just as he had done in the early years of his life.  After much discussion, Eric and Babs also decided to emigrate and they left this country for Australia in 1977.

 

For most of the rest of their lives they lived at 20 Banksia Court, Elizabeth Park Adelaide.  After the death of his wife in 1985 Eric moved to F.114 Breamore Street, Elizabeth North, still in Adelaide, where he spent much time with Pamela and her family.  After suffering a stroke Eric eventually moved to the Trevu Nursing Home, 70 East Terrace in Gawler East, where he died on the 7th July 1991.

 

PENINSULAR & ORIENT (P & O) LINE

The company was begun about 160 years ago with the prime purpose of carrying the mail and once it was the largest company in the world.  The early ships had black hulls and funnels and stone-coloured superstructure although this was changed in the 1930s.  The flag is quartered using the royal colours of Portugal and Spain, the area to which the company first sent their mail ships.  During the Spanish Civil Wars in the 1830s they were involved with both sides in the struggle for the throne, and at this time their ships, besides the mails, were carrying such cargoes as guns, troops, machinery and giraffes for London Zoo!  The first passenger journey was on the 22nd August 1837 and was made by the 800-ton Don Juan although this vessel was wrecked on the return journey.  However, the mail was saved, so retaining the company's reputation, and within three years they had extended their business to Egypt, and another three years later to India.  For these longer runs larger ships of 2,000 tons were necessary and they had to be built to withstand the monsoon weather in the Far East.  By 1845 the service reached Singapore and Hong Kong, and by 1852 the route to Australia had also been established.

 

Besides the mail the ships travelling east of Suez carried such goods as silks and indigo and had a near monopoly of long-distance steamer services in the far east.  However, with the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 there had to be much economising and many changes to ensure the company survived.  There were larger and faster ships, and two thirds of the passengers, which included civil servants, diplomats, soldiers, bankers, industrialists, missionaries and world travellers, went to India. Although originally limiting travellers to First and Second class only, in 1910 the company started carrying emigrants to Australia.  Gradually the Australian routes replaced those to India as the most important and Australian passengers encouraged the introduction of games decks on board the ships.

 

Even before the company had started, ideas had been put forward about cruising around the Scottish coast and to Iceland.  Modern-style cruises were begun in the 1880s by the Orient Line and the North of Scotland Company, both later to be taken over by P&O.  The first programme of P&O First Class only cruises with shore excursions was organised by Thomas Cook in 1904; the activity became more and more popular and the company used the newest ships in the fleet. Tourist class cruises began on the 1930s, whilst cruises from Australia had begun a few years earlier.

 

By the 1930s the ships had become floating cities, as tall as skyscrapers and as big as mainline railway terminuses.  Their machinery was as large as that of a power station enabling them to travel at 30 knots.  The passengers were provided with every comfort to make them feel separated from the ocean itself.  The fittings and furnishings on the ships were therefore very elaborate and very luxurious.  Everything was done on a lavish scale so that the individual cabins and magnificent public rooms could be compared favourably to any stately mansion.

 

Apparently, Eric William WHEATON could see the masts of the liners in Tilbury Docks from his home in Grays. This encouraged him to become a steward on P&O liners on the route to Australia.  Whether this actually entailed "running away to sea" we are not certain, but he could not have been very old as he had returned to land and to Essex, where he was married in 1930 when he would have been only nineteen years old.
