Ah, but just realised - 6/11/1887 was your George's baptism date, not DOB.


ArgyllGran Report 6 Sep 2018 18:38

Several siblings of that George were also baptised 6/11/ 1887 -

Annie Sevend; Constance Beatrice; Rose Gertrude; Florence Edith.

The father George William was a shoemaker.

So this is George with his family in 1891:

Even with that info, George and Alice are not springing to the eye in 1939, at least not together.

Are you sure they were both still alive in 1939?


AnnMarieG Report 6 Sep 2018 18:55

ArgyllGran, That is the right family ,thank you.

I perhaps didn't explain my query properly but the information I wanted was where my Nan (Alice Tucker) was living in 1939.

A long lost cousin has recently been in touch (which is great) and we are trying to put together where people lived in 1939.

George Tucker (bootmaker) was my great granddad.


ArgyllGran Report 6 Sep 2018 19:38

Do you know Alice's exact birthdate?

Do you mean that she and George were no longer together?
If he had died, when was that?

Could she have remarried before 1939?

I don't even see them together in 1901 or 1911. Have you found them then, and where were they living?

Are you certain that Alice was alive in 1939.?

Where did she die?


AnnMarieG Report 7 Sep 2018 08:56

ArgyllGran. I have the 1911 census and the name was transcribed wrong. It was stated as Turner but was the right family and they were living in stoke newington. I dont know if they were together as I dont know anything about my grandad since 1911.I know he was gassed in WW1 and was sent home from the war but that is all. i dont know when he died But Alice didnt die until 1964 in Essex


ArgyllGran Report 7 Sep 2018 11:33

Thanks, AnnMarieG. Do you know Alice's exact DOB?

So, for our reference:

For a rough idea of the time of year George was born:

ArgyllGran Report 7 Sep 2018 11:47

A possibility for George in 1939, which would imply they weren't together.

George is the last on the list of residents at 4 Manor Road, which should mean he was just a lodger, and not with a wife:

ArgyllGran Report 7 Sep 2018 11:58

If Alice was indeed born 1879 in London -

These are the only three possibilities. Do you know if she had a middle name?
Her marriage record doesn't state one.

GRO Reference: 1879 M Quarter in POPLAR Volume 01C Page 678

GRO Reference: 1879 S Quarter in HOLBORN Volume 01B Page 758
>>>> (NO, her father was Benjamin)

GRO Reference: 1879 J Quarter in HOLBORN Volume 01B Page 786
>>>> (NO, her father was George)

Is this Alice's death? 1963, not 1964. Still no middle name, but at least she was still Tucker, so hadn't remarried.

Do you know if Alice had siblings?

Malyon posted an 1891 census record for an Alice Robertson with father Thomas.
