Hi, am looking for any info at all that would connect the name Fauxcroft to my earliest known ancestor, George Edward Fauxcroft Wade. Thanks

Far too vague I,m afraid

Have you looked in member trees to see if anyone has George Wade in their tree

I think the poster is looking for info pre-1830 only

Another desperate sugestion: Perhaps Edward died or they split up and Elizabeth teamed up with a Mr Wade

Baptism: 2nd August 1829 at Trinity Marylebone Middlesex
George Edward Foxcroft born 23rd April 1829

Good find, Kayak.
I was looking for a Foxcroft/Fauxcroft birth but didn't see that.

New thread started, about George Edward Fauxcroft Wade's military career:

https://www.genesreunited.co.uk/boards/board/military_chat/thread/1395415

Have advised keeping all info together on this thread rather than the new one, for context and identification of the right man..

New OP copied here:

H, I have an ancestor, George Edward Wade who, according to Surrey Police enlistment docs, served with the 11th Reg of Foot 1848 to 1859. Although I know George was born in Marylebone London I am wondering if his army enlistment papers of 1848 would show parents/address etc. Who would be best placed to help.

ArgyllGran

ArgyllGran Report 27 Jul 2021 18:44

There are no military records for him on Ancestry.

There are 4 records of men named George Wade who served in the Crimean War - but not in that regiment.

Nothing on forces-war-records.co.uk either.


"In the 19th century, the regiment spent most of the 19th century on garrison duty throughout the Empire"

As suggested I will now put all the ' leads I have regarding George E F Wade on one thread. After leaving army in 1858 He joined Met Police, serving in Peckham Division. Would his enlistment docs for met show address/parents etc.
Also be left the met in 1961 to join Surrey Police in same year with a gap of a few months. His enlist ment doc states he was in business with his mother and have an address: 4, Poplar Row, New Kent Road, London. Though I have no first name for his mother, would trade directories give some useful info.
Thanks

Have you tried to contact the Metropolitan Police?

In 1861 (census posted earlier) he's listed as a "Metropolitan Police constable".
In 1871 (also already posted) and 1881 he's a "Police constable".

I don't know London districts well, but Google says New Kent Road is in Southwark
But one site says Poplar Row, New Kent Road is now called Tarn Road, in Newington.

But, wherever it was, I don't see it on the London ER for c1861.
Nor either George or Elizabeth Wade in the east of London - not as Wade, Fauxcroft, or Foxcroft..

The 1829 baptism of George Edward Foxcroft posted above (if that's him, which seems quite likely) says his mother's name was Elizabeth.
