Eringobragh1916 Report 23 May 2012 20:14

I would appreciate if someone could try and locate a Thomas Deery (Spelling varies)
Born 1875 Wallsend Northumberland.
I have him on 1881/1891/1901 but cannot find him 1911...
I have all info re BMD and family but not this piece of the jigsaw.

Many thanks

Thomas (Deary) married Ellen Chambers in Watford in 1914


GlitterBaby Report 23 May 2012 22:39

Was Thomas in the Army?

Seems a long way from home for that marriage in 1914

Thank You Catherine...
I had not considered the possibility that he may have enlisted pre 1911 Census..Glitter Baby (thank you) raised the question earlier...
He had an uncle and cousin who went out to Canada (Via NY) April 1907 and I considered he may have gone with them and returned at some stage however I cannot find evidence of him doing that either...he is rather an enigma as he left a small fortune when he died (Wallsend 1929)

DEARY Thomas of Columba House 26 Laburnum Avenue Wallsend Northumberland
died 22nd February 1929 Probate Newcastle upon Tyne 10 May to Ellen Gertrude

Effects £8228 15s 4d. todays money of £365,497.00...

His brothers and sisters hadnt a penny to Bless themselves with...!!

Do you have the newspaper article from 1903 about Thomas being assaulted in his shop? If not, let me know and I'll forward it to you.


Eringobragh1916 Report 24 May 2012 20:00


No dont have anything re Thomas..there apparently was some Shenanigans went on within the family and the "Shop" was the cause of it all according to family history...The saga went on well into the 1970s...!!


Eringobragh1916 Report 24 May 2012 20:50

Thank You MC...Received News cutting...had fun reading all the news....!
So she nearly felled him with a lump of cheese did she...mind that poses a another query...because the "shop" was a newsagents and never sold anything else...the mystery deepens.
