Looking for information on James.
His father was a John Stevens. He married Emily Amelia Thompson nee Wallis 12 oct 1919. Both were widows
James joined Navy 16 Sept 1998. Gave his birthday as 10 Aug 1880 but this is strongly believed to be false.

Cannot find him in
births
1881 census (okay may not jave been born
1891 census when he would have been 10
1901 census maybe away at sea
Any info re James, his family, his first wife, father, mother, siblings appreciated

Thanks

Dear People

What a fantastic response, thank you.

I will now try to fill in answers.

Name Stevens, James
Official Number: 290047
Place of Birth: Canterbury, Kent
Date of Birth: 12 August 1880

All this appears correct and corresponds to his signing on 16 sept 1998 but family rumour is that he lied about age... and what else ???

Emily Amelia Thompson was second marriage for both. Her maiden name was Wallis and in 1919 resident Baker St Burham Kent. James father John gave occupation as General Labourer on marriage detail. One of the witnesses was Albert Edward Stevens
Just believed base was Kent but KempinaPartyhat data re Bath has the right age . Record seems to be missing father who was alive in 1919

Thanks again for all the activity. Hope my notes help.

Best Regards

Len

People

I am amazed at the response. I will print off everything so far and digest it all. James Stevens was my wife's grandfather and she is most appreciative of all the help you have given.

May I pose another person. his time from my family. This has stumped both myself and my brother

George Thomas Boorman 1784-91-1868
Shipwright Appears 1841 and 1851 census but seems to have aged 15 years between them. Death record 1868 Married 10/05/1812 Buried 15.11.1868 : St Mary the Virgin, Chatham

Rebecca Moore c1793-1831
Buried Chatham 10 April 1831 Baptised 31.07.1796 Died Gillingham. Parents William Moore c1796-????. Anne ???? C1768-????

If anybody can point me in a direction to get further info it will be much appreciated.
