Hi AnnMarieG

So I am not sure that we are any closer to the correct death cert of your grandfather George Henry Tucker!

You mentioned your great grandfather dying in the workhouse in Camberwell - so there is a Camberwell connection - which means it could be the Camberwell George, but you would need to try to find out if perhaps he changed his occupation from his trade of Master Cobbler to Merchant Seaman. Maybe enquiries to Clarks Museum might turn up something? Also Merchant Seaman records can be found at Royal Museums Greenwich (try this link) which probably goes to National Archives - if there are records it might show next of kin.

At least it might help to eliminate the Camberwell death completely (or not).

Just in case you don't have all the children, a bit more info from FreeBMD - edited from my 14.23 post:

"I found a May Tucker but she was born March 1899 (before the marriage) or one in Islington in 1900" EDIT: If she had a middle name then there are more potentials.

" I can find one for Constance 1904 in Hackney which covers Clapton" EDIT based on shown as Beaty on Turner Census

Births Dec 1904 (>99%)
Tucker Constance Beatrice Hackney 1b 423

"Dorothy in West Ham in 1911" EDIT in fact there are two in West Ham one in 1910 and one in 1911 "and the other two in Willesden" EDIT (easier to find)

Births Mar 1913 (>99%)
Tucker George H Robertson Willesden 3a 533

Births Dec 1915 (>99%)
TUCKER Walter E ROBERTSON Willesden 3a 455

No Somerset lot don't look like it is them - so maybe they are 'Turners' in 1911!

Do you have this marriage Certificate?

Do you know if your gran had a middle name, what was her date of birth? Do you have her birth certificate - I think there could be a number of misleading clues going on here.

Also why don't you think that Gladys Dorothy could be a sister - one of the children are called Dorothy perhaps named after an aunt? Do you know if he had sisters?


AnnMarieG Report 19 Mar 2013 15:38

Jannie, Thank you so much for that, I will look into it. and thank you so much for all the research you have done today,
Big thanks to everyone else too. xx <3 <3


JannieAnnie Report 19 Mar 2013 15:33

Just while I am thinking - these might have records (Street in Somerset - that is where my Dad was evacuated - or one of the places anyway)


AnnMarieG Report 19 Mar 2013 15:29

Thank you Janie, I now have an extra name for Constance.Dont think that is his sister though. :-(


JannieAnnie Report 19 Mar 2013 15:28

If George Henry Turner was 30 in 1911 surely he was born in 1881? Thought we were looking for someone born 1877 - unless you gran was more than a year older than him - and they lied on the census return so it looked better at a year difference in age?


AnnMarieG Report 19 Mar 2013 15:26

As far as I know the children didnt have middle names. I was very confused about the name 'Turner' but a few people on here said that as everything else fits it was proberly put down wrong as were many of that time.BUT this census was written by george himself so was it wrong or is his handwritting just very bad.!!!!!!!!! even more confused now. :-S :-S :-S


JannieAnnie Report 19 Mar 2013 15:21

Well the Constance birth in 1904 I found is Constance Beatrice, so it ties them to the 1911 if it is under Turner.

I checked for a Gladys Dorothy/Dorothy Gladys marrying a George Tucker 1880 to 1935 - nothing found, but I found this:

Births Jun 1894 (>99%)
Tucker Dorothy Gladys M St. Saviour 1d 165

maybe sister to George Henry Tucker - except I am having trouble finding a George Henry Tucker born in Camberwell 1877!


jansmith Report 19 Mar 2013 15:18

The 1911 census image is TURNER not Tucker , are you certain about the children's names did they have middle names?
