Can anyone find him after 1901, please?

He was born in Hughenden, Buckinghamshire in 1882.; birth registration during September qr, in the district of Wycombe.

1891 census he was Edward J, age 8, with his parents, John, Agricultural labourer, age 61, Mary, age 51, brothers William J, age 26, Chair turner, Isaac, age 12, Benjamin, age 10, living in Widmer End, Hughenden, Buckingham,

1901 census he was John, occupation Farm, boarder, age 19, living with his brother Will, in Widmer End, Hughenden. His brother was a Turner of wood working at home, age 36, with his wife Ellen, age 30, and daughters Gunda, age 6, Rose, age 3, Dora, age 1.

I cannot find Edward John Newton anywhere after 1901.

Thank you :-)

Not finding him on the 1911 census

Thank you. No, I don't think he was with any of his siblings in 1911, not that I could see anyway.

That is interesting, Shirley - does it give his place of birth? And in which site did you find it, please?

Found the migration entry on Find My Past

Last address in UK was Dunlived ,Hartley Down ,Purley Surrey
intended future residence Port Harcourt.
No place of birth given

However UAC employees would go to the Coast ,as it was known, for 3 plus years secondment.

Thank you. I had not found that in Find My Past; I shall go and look again.

Unilever - my uncle and grandfather (different side of the family) worked for them :-)

I shall ponder about your findings, thank you.

I have had a look in find my past and it certainly could be him; how frustrating not to have the place of birth! :-)

Joy Kentish Maid Report 31 May 2011 17:22

There are quite a few marriages that could be his.

Wish I could find him on a ship returning to England - with place of birth :-)
And wish I could find him in 1911 or in army records.
