Elsie May TUTTON was born at 192 Cambell Road, Bromley in 1904 to Frederick Davis TUTTON and Clara RUSSELL. In 1911 the family were living at 10 Creton Street, Woolwich plus Winifred Mary TUTTON and Wilfred TUTTON with Frederick working as a grocers assistant. Frederick and Clara parted and Frederick married Ellen Lydia BOOTS in 1924. Elsie May appears to have changed her name to Joan McGregor RAMSAY at some point. In 1926 Joan married Stanley G.C. COOMBES in Portsmouth. I am trying to find out when and why Elsie changed her name. Is there anyone living in the Woolwich area who remembers or knows anything about this family who may be able to help me? Possibly Tutton family members?

red mail Samuel St, Woolwich, Kent
Searching for any descendants of John and Mary Elizabeth McArthur, living at 9 Samuels St Woolwich, Kent in 1851, with their five sons - James, John, Henry, Alexander and Hannibal McArthur. Or MacArthur. John McArthur was a Captain in the Royal Marines, later a Major-General. He was born in Devonport in 1791, and died in 1862. One of his sons, Henry, was born at Ascension Island in 1834. Thank you for any help.
red mail William Jobson lived in Helions Bumpsted Military Pension
Hi, I am tracking a William Jobson born 1786 and lived in Helions Bumpstead. William in later census returns is listed as a military pensioner. I am hoping to connect him to the birth, I think, of his son John Jobson born 1st Jan 1808 in Woolwich, Kent. Each parents name fits for the birth as there is a birth on Ancestry. Now this is the bit that I'm not sure fits and is a bit long winded, sorry! William Jobson and wife Mary had another child baptised in Helions 9th October 1808 (Helions). William and Mary went on to have William 6/1/1811 now I have found a death for William in Malta aged 20 months on Nov/Dec 1811. Several children followed between 1814- 1830. Williams death aged 20 months was attached to the 14th Regiment serving in Malta although I understand this to be the Buckinghamshires. I am wondering whether William senior was posted to Woolwich barracks as a result of the big recruitment drive in 1806. The 14th regiment disbanded in 1817 which seems consistent with the birth of the further children however, I assume that he was injured to receive a military pension so may have returned earlier. It would appear that women and children could travel with the regiment however, I am wondering how likely it would be that William senior would be attached to the Buckinghamshire reg having come from Essex. I understand that there was a big national drive for enlistment but really unsure whether this could explain the regiment. Was just wondering whether any military enthusiast could help to shed any light on these points please? I know some of the dates may offer an obvious answer however, as we all know they are not precise for this period. Thanks so much and sorry for the long post, all the best P....last thing I notice that Johns baptism is at St Madelene which is very close to the barracks.

red mail Todd/Collins & Randall of Woolwich/Eltham
Hello Wondering if anyone could help/advise me on a situation regarding my great grandmother. She was born Elizabeth May Todd (in Woolwich) in September 1902 and married a Charles Collins in Woolwich in September 1923 with a son Charles Collins being born December 1924. Apparently her husband was a soldier in the barracks at Woolwich and (not sure when) he disappeared and apparently was not heard of again.... leaving Elizabeth with a baby/young child on her own. But she then met Charles Randall and several children with him from abt 1928 although they didn't marry until 1943 in Woolwich. On the marriage certificate Elizabeth is listed as a widow... I'm wondering how I can possibly find out more about her first marriage and if she really did become a widow how would she have known her first husband, Charles Collins, had died if nobody knew where he was? Would she have been granted a divorce/annulment and if so could I possibly find out about it without knowing all the specific details? On talking to my uncle he seemed to think that her first husband, Charles Collins, might have been declared dead? Would love to hear from anybody with any suggestions/advice - Many thanks, Gemma P.S. Many thanks to Peter Cornish and John Baldwin for finding the first marriage and confirming that she married Charles Collins, I appreciate your help. Now I just need to find out what happened to him and whether he was declared dead or they divorced/annulled the marriage!! thanks again. Gemma

red mail Conflicting Information Sameul Roan Woodgate
I am confused by some of the conflicting information I've discovered. The Winnebago County IL Archives Birth Records do have Samuel Roan Woodgate listed with my grandmother's name Alma Calhoun as the parents' of my uncle Arthur Roan Woodgate. Yet, I don't know if William Arthur Woodgate is the father of Samuel Roan Woodgate. The years are close as are the events at similar times. My grandfather was a mason by trade when he came to the US. He later became a Salvation Army Brig. Gen. and His wife Alma became a Major in the Salvation Army. Alma, my grandmother came from Canada. I'm not sure if they met in Illinois or in Canada. If William Roan Woodgate married Sophie Cox bore a son of the same I am confused even more. Sophie died at age 49 which would be short by a couple years of Samuel's birthdates. I do remember as a youngster being told I was related to the Gen Edward Woodgate who fought in and died in the Boer war. Also, that my father, James, being the oldest of Samuel's sons was offered a Woodgate estate in England, if he could but pay the back taxes. I was told he didn't have the money for it and couldn't of cared less about the matter. Lastly, my Brother John Woodgate visited England and did some research and found we were related to an Archdeacon of the Church of England. That's about it. So, I will have to ferret more information and see if I can't get to the bottom of this enigma. Thank you again for your assistance and for any further thoughts and suggestion are welcome.

red mail Thomas Drummond
I am researching Therese Drummond an ancestor of mine, who was married on 21 December 1850 at St Thomas in Woolwich to William Henry Haynes. My difficulty is with her ancestry. Her father was stated on the marriage certificate to be Thomas Drummond (gentleman) and her address at the time 6 Kingston Terrace, Woolwich which I cannot find on any maps of the area. I can find nothing whatsoever anywhere regarding her parents or birth save for the fact that subsequent census entries say she was born in Westminster. She was 22 at her marriage but I can find nothing related to her birth. I am fairly certain that they are not part of the Drummond Hay family. It is quite possible that there was a naval or Admiralty connection. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as this is a longstanding brick wall for me.

red mail Tracing the Family ADAMS
I’m trying to trace my relatives who were living in the Woolwich/Plumstead area as far back as the 1870’s. The family surname is ADAMS and the first trace is in the 1871 Census when they lived at No 5 Globe Lane just by the side of the Woolwich Ferry. The area has of course is gone now and I think has been replaced by the Royal Arsenal Gardens by the side of Warren Lane. My Great Great Grandfather was a William Henry ADAMS who was an Engine Driver with the Steam Packet Company, probably the Watermen’s Steam Packet company originally and finally called the London Steamboat company. His children George, Alexander, Reuben and Charles my Great Grandfather were all Watermen & Lightermen and eventually George ADAMS became Captain of the Woolwich Ferry probably around the early 1900’s. Henry ADAMS died around 1890-1 and His wife Ann Jane (nee McKEE) moved to Brook Hill Place Woolwich and lived there with her son Charles ADAMS. Alexander ADAMS and wife Elizabeth (nee HUSSEY), and George ADAMS and wife Ann (nee HUSSEY) lived in Paradise Place around 1900. George and family eventually ended up in Genesta Road in Plumstead, where he died in about 1925. Alexander ADAMS died before 1901 and Elizabeth had moved to Rectory Grove Woolwich. Charles ADAMS married his wife Alexandra Mathilda (nee ALVAREZ) in 1892 in the Woolwich Registry Office and by 1901 they had moved across the river and were living at 18 Ford Street, Canning Town. By 1911 they had moved to 100 Ravenscroft Road Canning Town were they were heavily bombed during WWII and were evacuated.

red mail Warnock George died 1839
George Warnock and Mary Agar had six known children. George was recruited in Ulster we think, to the Royal Artillery and whilst in 1852 his sons James and Joseph moved to Whitby Yorks, we know that at least two of his other 4 children stayed in Kent. Eldest son George Agar Warnock was born in 1821 and died in Plumstead in 1908. We think he had three children: Joseph James, Emily Mary (married name Wagg) and Elizabeth Maude (married name Blight) His sister Mary Warnock married Charles Dashwood Coe in 1848 at St Lukes Church Charlton and at some point lived at Burrage Road Plumstead. There was still some family connection in the 1920's as my granddad Wilfrid Richardson was still visiting relatives there. Are any Warnocks still lving in Woolwich/Plumstead area?

red mail family names Street and Sage, Tannock
I would like to know more about my great grandmother and her family.Her name was Ann Jane Street who married Albert Sage in Woolwich in 1885.Albert was born in Hollingbourne in Kent in 1844 and died in 1894. They had 3 children Edwin Arthur(my grandfather born 1888) and Ellen known as Nell,I don't have her birth date, and Albert born in 1886. Albert Sage, the elder, died in an accident. I believe, from family stories, that he may have died falling from a horse. By 1901 Ann Jane married again to Hugh Tannock or Zannock(born 1846) and they had a daughter Florence May in 1905. But by 1903 Hugh Tannock or Zannock was already dead! I think my great grandmother married again but I don't know if she married Charles Page or Patrick Cocklin. It seems that she was always known as Mrs Sage but its difficult to find her death certificate given that her name could be listed as any one of three- she died around 1939.I would be grateful to anybody who could give me information.Edwin Arthur Sage was a painter and decorator who used to have a contract to paint The Woolwich Barracks, the longest Georgian facade in Britain. He married Rosina May Kunz aka Coombes a barmaid from Bromley and they both died in 1934. I am willing to share the info. I have with interested parties. Thankyou from Jane
