Have found this on someones tree on Ancestry.

It is connected to the Edward Maney and Julia Ansell.

Cbristiitas Entertainment at ST

Bart’s hospital.

The Clhristmas Entertainment is always a

time when the Bart’s stafl, medical and nursing,

past and present, foregather, and tickets of

admission are much sought after for this annual

function in the Great Hall of the Hospital, all

too small to hold those desirous ,of crowding

into it.

The Entertainment which this year took

place on the evenings of January 1st and %nd,

was in the hands of the Hospital Musical

Society, and its Amateur Dramatic Club.

The Orchestra excelled itself in. “ DiIignon,”

by Ambrose Thomas, and Waldteufel’s

L’Estudientin a was most admirably conducted

by Mr. Edmund Maney, who threw his whole

heart and soul into tbe music.

The comedy, “His Excellency the Governor,”

which has been produced at the Criterion, was

most amusing and excellently played, and

indeed each evening was a pronounced success

I have looked at the Ireland 1911 census, just in case, AND at emigrations and incoming passengers !............. NOTHING !!

Can't find a death for Edward in the UK or abroad !!

NO army records that I can find !!

I am going to look through newspapers later to see if I can find anything !

Well now I have had to do gardening this afternoon and have come down for a cuppa.

Hey, Jude,

'Leeds and Npt County call'

Is that Football ??????

HeyJudeB4Beatles Report 29 Sep 2012 15:34

I think the Edward John thing might be something to "take with the proverbial pinch of salt" - everything else - albeit tenuously - fits.

Edward Albert being a musical violinist is another thing...just who is he? His birth doesn't fit with Edward Thomas from Bristol or his son - slap bang in the middle!!!!

Oh I do love a bit of a mystery on a Saturday afternoon!! Offline for a while - Leeds and Npt County call :-)


Dea Report 29 Sep 2012 15:14

Sorry all - my computer 'threw a wobbly' and it has taken me over an hour to get it back :-( :-(

Jude and Christina - thanks, that is the one I was following too (the waiter chappie) but I can't seem to tie it together yet !

At least I have got rid of my 'totally black screen' !!!!! ;-) :-D
