My Great Grandfather, Thomas White was one of 6 children born to Baldwin White, b1862 in Salcombe, Devon & Rachel Arminia Fox, b1864 in Wayland, Norfolk. They were married in Falcombe, Cornwall in 1896.
On the 1901 census (Ref: RG/13/4962), Baldwyn (Baldwin) White and Rachel A. White (Nee Fox) had 4 Children:
- Baldwyn (Baldwin) White, 4yrs
- Beatrice White, 2yrs
- John White, 1yr
- Thomas White, 3 weeks
According to the 1911 census (Ref: RG 14/13895/129) Baldwin White and Rachel A. White had given birth to 6 children, but only 3 survived:
- John White, 11yrs
- Thomas White, 10yrs
- Jane White, 7yrs
Some connected family trees on Ancestry.co.uk have John as being one of the 3 infant deaths, but seeing as he appears on the 1911 census I dont believe this to be true.
My Great Grandfather, as far as I am aware, only ever spoke of his younger sister Jane.
I have run into a bit of a brick wall, I know that Baldwin Jr and Beatrice were definatly two of the 3 deaths. They appear on the BMD death index for Newport, Monmouthshire, but I can't find any reference to John White after 1911 that I can be certain is my Great Grand Uncle & have found no reference at all to the 6th (as yet unknown) child who I assume was born and died at some point between 1901 & 1911.
If it helps at all, the BMD Birth index for John White is: Qtr Jan-Feb-Mar 1900 District - Newport County - Monmouthshire Vol - 11a Page - 223
I know that the family was raised in Newport and, due to ill health on the fathers part, moved to Falmouth in Cornwall in 1908.
