red mail PERRY Francis (Frank)
PERRY Francis (Frank). Born 1865 in Beacon Street Falmouth, Cornwall. 1881 Census living with unmarried mother Jane PERRY in Dunning Yard, Falmouth. He married Esther Jane HEAD in September 1886 in Falmouth and son William Henry PERRY born 9 December 1886. In 1895 Esther and Frank lived at 4 Strawberry Cottages, Plymouth and Esther died on 23 February that year. Frank is an Hotel Porter according to Esthers Death Certificate. The last known whereabouts of him is on the 1901 Census, where he wrongly states that he is aged 41. He is a widower. His occupation is Commercial Travellers Porter and he is living at 113R King Street, Plymouth. I wonder if these are lodgings for staff working at an Hotel there? He is my great grandfather, having fathered my grandmother some time during 1901, as she was born 6th December 1901 in Bridlington (a far cry from Devon!). Frank PERRY, Commercial Traveller is named as her father. We believe that the mothers name of Ethel PERRY (nee WRIGHT) is a fictitious name, as my grandmother was brought up by a Thirza TAYLOR. Cannot find Franks death or where he was after 1901 and would dearly love to know!

My wife's Grandfather Charles Henry Parsons born 1856 and died 1931 lived in Kingsands until sometime after 1901 then in Cecil Street, Plymouth. He was a shipwright by trade and according to 1911 census worked in a 'private yard'. My wife's father was born 1894 and died in 1960, like his father he lived in Kingsands then Plymouth. He served a shipwright apprenticeship (in a private yard) presumably with his father. He served throughout WW1 as a stretcher bearer, upon return from the war he could not get a job in Plymouth once again following his father to Portsmouth for work. He married and worked in various jobs before he was able to enter Portsmouth Dockyard as a shipwright and stayed there until his death. We would like to know where in Plymouth they worked as shipwrights and apprenticeships served. Can anyone help please.
