PostPosted: Fri Oct 24, 2014 8:48 am    Post subject: Fred Glover Reply with quote

The Fred Glover who is listed in 1901 Census, is my Great Uncle. He was orphaned, along with his 4 siblings on 31 March 1899 when the LSWR SS Stella went down off the Casquets in the Channel islands. His father, Thomas Glover, was one of those lost that foggy day. Thomas' new wife didn't want to look after his 5 children from the previous marriage and so sent them back to the Southampton Workhouse, where they arrived on 10th June 1899. The Workhouse records state that one of the Glover boys would be provided with a uniform and sent trhe Lady Breadlebane Home....I have been looking for that place for years, and now I have found it; The Kenmore Orphange. Fred was born in Southampton 1894 (no actual birth is recorded), but his baptism record gives it as Jan 1894. When his Mum was killed, his dad took all the children over to Jersey...a nice surprise for the new second wife!!! Now, is the Fred Glover on the Kenmore Memorial my Great Uncle? I have tried to search the actual army records, and a Fred Glover was killed on 1st JUly 1916 at the Somme with the Queen Victoria Rifles (The London Regiment). But as yet, no confirmation if that Fred is my Fred. I just need to join the last few dots. Is there a picture of him in that Hall?

little54,

Very recently, through the kindness of those looking after the Old Comrades Hut at Acharn, I was allowed to individually photograph the men in the Memorial Picture which is kept there. Photographs of nineteen men from the Kenmore Memorial are framed but no Fred Glover I'm afraid. I will contact a chap in Aberfeldy who has researched the local memorials thoroughly and see what he has. I'll get back to you.

rgds.,

Mark

Fred Glover was the son of Thomas and Rosina Bella Glover (nee Rickman). Born in Southampton.
Rosina died in July 1897 after being run down by a Misslebrooke and Weston Horse and cart, in Shirley Southampton.
With in a few days Thomas took his 5 children over to Jersey to live with him and the lady in his life who soon became his 2nd wife.
Fred's siblings were as follows;
Laura Mary Glover born 1887, died Nov 1899 from TB in a nursing home in Poole Dorset. (She was buried with Rosina in Southampton Old Cem).
Thomas Richard Glover, born 1889, sent to the LSWR Servant's Orphanage in Clapham in June 1899, returned to Southampton to work in his Uncle George Payne's butcher shop. He joined the Royal navy but was sent to a shore base in 1911. More research required.
William George Glover (my granddad) born 1892, in So'ton Workhouse in 1901 (listed as being born in Jersey) then also ended up with George Payne. Joined the Hampshire Regiment.
Frederick born 1894, but not registered, but his baptism record from St James Church Southampton gives it as Jan 1894. So'ton Workhouse Creed records state that the Boy Glover was sent to Lady Breadlebane's home.
Elsie Lilian Glover, born 1896, not registered either, but baptised in 1896. She was in the workhouse in 1899, but no indication as to where she eventually was sent.
Hope this helps. I was not able to send a PM.
Sue
