Rob, you say "I do have this info already ...."

If you do have more info, then please impart what you can!

Hi, sorry to appear to mislead - the info on this thread is all I have!

But nothing seems very concrete, and I was hoping someone would come up with a little gem!

Obviously I do know bits and bobs about his life ... but nothing really very useful. He did re-marry, first name Hilary (but can't find this!).

I'll hunt through my records and see if there's anything else which migt help.

Interesting that he was on the board of directors for Blighty mag during the war - that is, he was never in the services. I wonder how that came about?
I have a full bound set of all the weekly papers for the whole WW2 period.

Really interesting articles and cartoons.

Just got back from being away ...

Marriage Cert details ...

29/3/1924 Paddington

Ernest Charles Jennings + Amelia Walker
Age 22 and 21

Prof: Artist (Commercial)

Father: Ernest Charles Jaennings
Prof: Artist (Painter)

Father: Frederick Walker
Prof: Canteen Manager

Witnesses: E King and J King

Addresses: Bravington Road
Walterton Road.

So, was my Frederick Walker the Porter in 1901 at 73 Walterton Road????

The above does not seem to "fit" with the posh lifestyle ...

An Amelia Walker from Stafford Street in Mayfair, just round the corner From St. James, does seem to fit.

Still not much further forward really.

Thanks so far,

Welcome back. Did wonder why Ernest Jnr's lifestyle was different from that of his parents. Maybe the 1911 is correct after all. Have something in my shoebox on Ancestry. Amelia's EDIT mother was born in Peckham. Will dig it out.

The area where Ernest and Amelia lived at the time of their marriage was certainly quite different from St James'. I lived near those addresses in the early 60's. However they could have deteriorated since Ernest and Amelia lived there. Now I believe they are on the up.

Thanks Vera,

By the time my stepfather was born in 1925, they were already in St. James, lliving the posh lifestyle.

So, Ernest was only 25 by then ... so where did this money come from?

His acting career started in the 60's. Various films, Dr. Who, Steptoe etc ... his "filmography" can be found on the net ...

He did get a lot of commissions as an artist - maybe it was very well paid???
