     Notes on main ancestors


John  my Great, Great, Great, Great Grand farther.


He produced 11 children in his first marriage to Sarah Berridge  and two more in his second Marriage to Mary Barrett ,my Great, Great, Great, Great Grandmother.  In the 1841 Census John was listed as a grazier living in Burton Overy Leicestershire. His age is given as 75. However, as the age of adults were rounded off to the nearest 5 years he could be between 73 and 78 which would indicate his birth year as 1774 & 1778. Unfortunately the 1841 census does not give the place of birth but it does indicate that he was not born in Leicestershire. Therefore, unfortunately, I have been unable to trace the tree back any further.


Maria, my Great, Great, Grandmother


Gave birth to two illegitimate sons. George Manfred and Harry.  In the 1851 census she is listed as a Servant to Richard Wilson and his wife Hannah. In the 1861 Census she is listed as' formally servant' and  living with second son Harry. Meanwhile, first son, George Manfred, My Great Granddad, is living his grand Aunt  & Uncle Ann & Samuel Gamble.  She married  John Watts and had a couple of children with him and later, after John's demise, married  Alfred Judd in 1878.


George Manfred, My Great Grandfather


Born 1852  in Burton Ovary. At the age of 19 Joined the Royal Artillery at Woolwich on 4th Nov 1871.  He served in various places in the UK and was promoted to Bombardier in 1877 - Corporal   in1878.  On 14th Dec 1880 he boarded HMS Malabar and Landed in India 21st Jan 1881.  It would appear that he had committed an offence in October 1881 and was found guilty at his trial. He was reduced to the rank of  Driver.  In Nov 1884 he was promoted again to Bombardier and corporal in Jun 1988. His last posting was to Ireland where he was medically discharged on 23 Oct 1888.

Severed in the Royal Artillery and finished his service on the Isle of Wight, where he met and Married my Grandmother Agnes Kate Sprake.   He was one of the first volunteers for service in the First world war and Joiner the Hampshire regiment. He was one of the lucky ones that managed to survive that horrendous war.
