Stephen Report 17 Feb 2014 18:08

I am trying to find out what happened to My Great Aunty Ella as the only information I have got is her birth in West Ham. Her fathers name was Thomas(c1875) and mother Mary or May(c1871) (her maiden name was Todd). She had two brothers George (1901) and Horace(1902) there is no record of the family in the 1911 census. Family rumour is that she married an American film producer in the 1920s. It is thought that both parents died between 1910 to 1919 as my Grandfather Horace was sent to live in Box, Wiltshire again family rumour is he was an orphan. Hopfully someone out there will have an idea of were I can look.

Although not directly related to your current request, were you aware that Thomas’ service records are on Ancestry

British Army WWI Service Records, 1914-1920 about Thomas Cloutman
(There is no reference to 1914-1920 amongst the images)

Name: Thomas Cloutman

Age at enlistment: 18
Birth Parish: Bethnal Green
Birth County: Middlesex
Document Year: 1892
Regimental Number: 3281
Regiment Name: Cameron Highlanders
Number of Images: 9

They give the date of his marriage to Ma(r)y Todd as 4 May 1899 at 26 St Stephens Road (Walthamstow?). That sounds more like an address than a place of marriage. The witness were Harry Todd and Sarah Ann Todd.

He’d been in service before he married
25 Apr 1892-20 Feb 1893 ‘at home’
21 Jan 1893 – 18 Jan 1895 Malta
19 Feb 1895 – 3 Oct 1897 Gibraltar
?????? – 4 Feb? 1900 Home
?? Feb 1900 – 30 Oct 1900 South Africa
???? – 1 Nov 1900 Home – Discharged then as being medically unfit

He’d been around a bit
Nile Expedition 1898
Battle of Atbara 8 Apr 1898
Battle of Khartoum 2 Sep 1898
Wounded at Omdurman 2 Sep 1898

He originally attested on 25 Apr 1892 at Shorncliffe Barracks (Kent) and wanted to join the Cameroon Highlanders

William was awarded quite a few campaign medals, possibly
Egyptian ___- medal & clasp
The Atbara & Khartoum/Queens Sudan medal
Queens SA medal & clasp

1931 Wandsworth it actually says Ella Madeline May Foreman.

No marriage jumping out so maybe they weren't unless they married abroad.

Where was she 1911?

MarieCeleste Report 19 Feb 2014 13:11

Just been having a read through this and Maryb is quite right - she is recorded by her full name in 1931 at 350 Wandsworth Road.

The first appearance of Ella and Thomas William Foreman is 1929 at 492 Wandsworth Road. She wouldn't appear before that as the voting age for women was just lowered from 30 in 1928. The couple are together through the 1930s, 40s & 50s (as DET posted above) at 6 Derwent road, Uxbridge. From the early 60s she's at 8 Villiers Road with people called Parfitt at the same address.

Thomas William Foreman died 1962:

...........................................................................................................

Personally, I think the 1926 marriage that DET posted might just be her. It could be a horrible mangling of her name, she might even have already had a short marriage, she may have been brought up using another name ....

On the 1951 electrol roll there is Beryl E Meek, I think this is her,

She marries again in 1953.


So if her mother is Ella, she was registered prior to their marriage, and it looks as if Ella was using Cullen as her maiden name.
