His name was William James Raper, born on the 22/02/1852 in the Parish of St, George, Middlesex. On marriage the family lived in Bermonssey at 42 Charlotte Street. My Grandfathers Birth Cert. shows William's occupation as a Theatre Musician (which establishment I do not know).

red mail Florence Cattel/BURRIDGE
I have located my great aunt Florence. She is shown as living at 25 Brunswick Court, Bermondsey, in the 1901 Census but she is calling herself BURRIDGE, not Cattel, and as a Widow. She was an Army Accoutrement Maker. Two Police Constables lived nearby (Charles Hale and James Rushton).

red mail Coffee house keeper in Bermondsey
My great aunt Florence SCHOFIELD (nee PIPER) ran a coffee house in Tooley Street for many years. She first married George CATTEL (1891) and they had a son, George James. Something must have gone wrong with the marriage for the son changed his name by Deed Poll to PIPER as soon as he was legally old enough (in 1913) but he was calling himself George PIPER several years before that. Any information on this family between 1897 and 1905 would be very welcome.
red mail Clark/Clarke/Omer
Relates London EC and Bermondsey/Newington Looking for information on antecedents of the Clark(e) and Omer family. Thomas Clarke (abt 1796-1836) married Cecilia Ann Omer (abt 1799-1850's), daughter of William Omer (son of James Omer) and Elizabeth Dalton. Thomas Clarke was the son of Thomas Clarke (abt 1768-1833), bedstead maker, and Ann (died 1844), and had 3 other surviving siblings, George, Harriett (married John (Funnell) abt 1831) and Mary Ann (married John Clunie, baker, of Watling Street, EC, abt (1817)). The 4 Clarke children were probably born in London, EC. Thomas Clarke and Cecilia had several daughters, of whom only one, Mary Ann Harriott Clarke appears to have married, to a Henry Barrow, and had children, and one son, Thomas Clarke, born 1835. Thomas Clark (no longer spelt Clarke with an "e") married Ellen Clemons in Hastings in February 1867, and had a son, Thomas, possibly born in Hastings in 1867, and 5 further children. Thomas Clark (born 1835) died in the early 1880's. I have some information on his offspring, with the exception of Thomas born 1867. It is possible that he is the Thomas Arthur Clark counted in the 1911 census living with his wife, Alice Mary Clark (nee May) in Streatham.

red mail Looking for Francis Blake and Annie Donegan descendants
I'm looking for the descendants of Francis Blake (married Annie Marie Ellena Donegan on May 11, 1869, in Bermondsey, England). One of their sons, Walter Albert, born on February 6th 1890 was my granddad. He was part of what is called The British Home Children. He came to Canada (Montreal) at the age of 14. From what I've been told by my parents, Walter was the cadet of a big family (11 children) and all his brothers and sisters were placed in two orphanages (one catholic and one protestant) after their father passed away. It would be nice to get in touch with the descendants of his brothers and sisters who still lives in UK. It's seem like two of his brothers (Francis and Frederick) were once the owners of THE BLUE POSTS, a pub on Newman St., London). "Francis William Blake, married Emma nee Boxall on May 12 1894 at St John, Horselydown, Southwark, his father shown as Francis Blake a leather dresser her father shown as George Boxall, a leather dresser. Francis and Emma had three children, Frances Emmaline Blake christened April 28 1895 at St Augustine, Bermondsey, Arthur Francis Blake christened June 28 1896 also at St Augustine and Herbert Charles Blake christened May 29 1898, Herbert died prior to 1911.Arthur Francis married Hilda Boutchard in 1926 they had twin boys Anthony and Peter J born 1933. registered Barnet, Hertfordshire." Anthony and Peter J, born in 1933 may still be alive. Would be nice to reach them.
My Grandfather Wilfrid Robert RAPER was born in Block 2A Vine Street Buildings in June 1892, This is recorded on his Birth Certificate so I guess that Block 2A did exist.

Sarah,their children - Thomas, William & Richard (twins),John(my great great grandfather DOB 1827) Henry,Alfred,Daniel,Frances. Living in Long Lane Bermondsey, and George Street Bermondsey in the 1820's-1840's. In 1825 on the baptism record of William, his father Thomas,is listed as a shopkeeper.
