Tracing your family history / Re: Where do I look next?

Hi Caroline

My cancer treatment has now finished and I am getting back to normal, back at work etc. And back at the Family History.
The only thing is, my computer died January time. Luckily I backed up all my family history data, but I lost all my email addresses including yours. So not sure where we got up to Fry history wise, as when we were last speaking I was going through chemotherapy.

Have you done any more research? or is there anything you'd like to know about the family?

best wishes

Hello Sandra

I was flabbergasted at my ancestry which was uncovered by Annette, www.dajevue.webs.com. You can also call her on 07725 908728.

Good luck, Dan

Hi Dan, I have been researching my Ancestry for 14 years, I don't need to pay someone to do it for me as I enjoy doing it myself. Thank you anyway.

Hi Caroline,

I don't have any more info on William, so not sure what happened to him. I'll have to have a delve and see what I can find.

The 10 year old was Nan's brother Alf (he died at sea in 1918) not sure why he said he was their brother and not their nephew...doesn't seem right a 10 year old giving evidence at the Old Bailey does it.

A bit later on in the transcript, William giving evidence said 'I saw my nephew Alfred Fry'

Also in one of the News of the World newspaper reports, it says Alfred is the nephew (have attached the report).

Hi Caroline, I've been doing my tree since 2002. I have done the Fry line right back to the 1700's.

Our great granddad Alfred Fry born 21st July 1840 in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, married Mary Ann Pennington-Phillips. They had 9 children.
Mary Ann died in 1893 & Alfred re-married to Alice Jane Stepney - nee Johnstone....they didn't have any children together, Alice had 6 children of her own.

Alfred & Mary Ann's 2nd child was my great-granddad Alfred Fry 5th Dec 1869 - 4th Jan 1924 (your g-granddads brother)

My g-granddad Alfred married Rebecca Lee and had 17 children (a lot died very young) Their first child was also called Alfred Fry 1889-1918 (my nan's brother)....and this Alfred's 2nd child was also named Alfred Fry 2011-2001 (he was known as Chocco, he used to have a Candy Floss stall in Queens Rd Market, Upton Park)

I did wonder if you knew June :) Mum's cousin Ginny used to see quite a lot of her, and it was Ginny who asked June for the info.

Most of Richard and Isabella's children died very young, if you look at the dates they were only babies or toddlers when they died which is why your granddad didn't know them...its so sad really that they lost so many..... but the children he had with Annie lived a lot longer and into adulthood.

My email address is   sandra_smith62@btinternet.com

I can give you a lot more info via email :) x

William's birth record -

Name:   William Fry
Mother's Maiden Surname:   Chapman
Date of Registration:   Jan-Feb-Mar 1922
Registration district:   West Ham
Inferred County:   Suffolk
Volume Number:   4a

Hi Ron, I've got two Albert Frys in my tree, one born in 1898 and one born in 1902.

But I have yet to find all the children, grandchildren etc, so could very well be related to me :)

Hi Caroline, thanks for the dates.

I was in touch with a lady about 9 or 10 years back who wrote down all the Fry names for me (your dad's included), I can't remember her name offhand, I think it was June Fry? I have still got it in my family history box, I'll have to find it out, as you may know her.

But I got all the baptisms from the online Essex records (SEAX) which gave me their dates of birth, parents & siblings names etc.

I was also in touch with a bloke, again could have been 10 to 15 years ago, who was descended from Richards brother William (I think, memory is a bit rusty). When I told him that Richard & William had killed a bloke and they were sent to Pentonville, he didn't contact me again!   :D

Hello Caroline that makes us 2nd cousins!  :D

Your great-granddad was certainly a character wasn’t he.
I have all the court records from the Old Bailey from when he and his brother William killed that bloke on his wedding night when he married Isabella in 1899. And also when he committed robbery at Victoria Dock gates in 1905.

I have Richard having 9 children with Isabella. The 9 children were born between the years 1899 and 1919.
Richard 16th Sept 1899 – 1899
Richard 23rd Dec 1901 – 1902
William Henry (known as Harry) 1902 – 1903
Henry Andrew 5th Aug 1905 – 1906
Isabella Ethel A Fry 1907 -
John Henry Robert 20th May 1909 – 1909
Alfred Andrew 16th Oct 1910 – 1911
Annie Harriett 26th Nov 1915 –1989
Emma Jane Mary 26th July 1919 -

I also have him having 9 children with Annie Florence.... (Who was Richard & Isabella’s 19 year old lodger in the 1911 census.)
George Alfred 10th Oct 1911 – 15th Jan 1975
Elizabeth Ann 13th Dec 1913 -
Frances 15th July 1915 -
Amy Florence 13th Feb 1917 -
Richard Henry 20th Sept 1919 -
William 1922 -
Annie Rosina 19th Aug 1923 -
Henry Edward (Harry) 5th Aug 1925 – 1990
Lillian Dorothy 1928

Richard & Annie’s children were born between 1911 and 1928
so he was having children with both women for a time. The reason I know this is because I have the children’s baptism’s with the date, parents etc.

I haven’t really gone into the family in much detail, I have yet to find all the marriages, deaths etc, as I have been concentrating on other lines in my tree. I really must get back into the fry line and see what else I can find.

Isabella died in 1938 and he married Annie in 1945.

Does our info match?

best wishes

Sandra

Hi Ron

I am also related to Ronnie Lee :)

Hi Cockney Gel

Thank you for your reply.

That would be my Nan's brother Harry, his wife Hilda and their 4 children.
Sadly the eldest son Harry (married to Mary) died in 2009. I am very much in contact with his daughter and granddaughter :)

I am related to Beanie, Beanie (real name Lavinia Lee) married James Walsh. She was a lovely lady, sadly she died in 2004, she is buried in the East London Cemetery.  Their daughter Jackie was a very active member of the 'old' Newham forum site... I think she's a member of this one too.

Thank you for your help

Hi Richilda
I have all the above names in my family tree.
Hannah (Annie) Bigginton married Duriah (Duey) Buckley, their daughter Hilda married George Howsego etc etc....
I am descended from the Lee family, so not directly related to the Buckleys or Howsego's.
If there's any info you'd like to know about the Lee family, I would be happy to help.

Hi Indaloman

I have just looked at Benjamin Edwin Knight in the 1911 census.

I can see he is living in Fords Park Rd, Canning Town with his wife Margaret & son Benjamin. But there's no connection I'm afraid, as Margaret gives her birthplace as Deptford, whereas all my Stokes came from Canning Town and didn't venture the other side of the water at all.

Going back further with my Stokes, they were living in Cripplegate then St George in the East, then Stepney, eventually going into Canning Town.

I do have a Margaret Stokes, but she married William George Frederick Wallis, and her father was Henry.

Good luck with your search and hope you get a breakthrough soon :)

Thank you West Ham Boy,  yes I did find the marriage in 1945 as I said in my previous post.

After I posted on here, I had a deeper look and found that George E Stokes born 1921 mothers maiden name Wordley, had siblings Harry A K Stokes b1914, George S Stokes b1917 and Nolan P Stokes b1929.

Parents were George Stokes and Sarah Wordley married West Ham 1918.

I still can't find if or how this family would fit into my tree, but keeping them all on record just in case :)


Nellanhoj - All of my Stokes stayed in the Canning Town/Custom House area.

Hi, Thanks for the info.

I have just had a look and found the children born 1947, 1950, 1951, 1954 and another son born in 1964.

All the children were born in the West Ham reg district, parents George E Stokes & Helen M Mullen married in Southport in 1945.

I do have a couple of George Stokes in my tree about the right age, but none are married to Helen Magdalen Mullen.
Not sure if that George came from Southport or from here, but I shall keep these names on record just in case in the future I find we are related. :)
