Lillian Willcocks is pretty sure he didn't die in
UK, she thinks possibly in either Vienna or Malta.
From even when she was a baby she has no recollection of him and she said
"Gongon" never talked about him.

Apparently, and she is not sure whether it's true or not, but the story goes
that Elizabeth was a servant maid in Mark's family who became pregnant by him
and they then eloped.

I wonder if Eliza or Rose were the child involved?

I think you are correct, there is no connection with Armstrong-Siddeley, went into the web site and the Siddeley is a "Siddeley", I think it has been one of those family things that has been passed down and totally distorted.

Re William Easy - there is the following baptism record at Laxfield:-

1819 - June 27th, William son of Marianne Easy of Laxfield, spinster

Marianne Easy then married Joseph Lockwood 25th January 1820 in Laxfield. So George Lockwood and William Easy had the same mother but the father of William is unknown. I think that the brother-in-law entered on the 1881 census was inaccurate - step-brother may have been more accurate.

Also you may be interested in the following Ubbeston baptism record:-

I found Edwin Thomas Robinson among the garrison records. His birth date which was crossed was March 5, 1847 and his baptism at St.Paul's Chapel on March 26, 1847. His parents were Thomas and Caroline Robinson. Thomas was a sergeant of the Regiment of the R. Fusileers but there is no record of his wife's maiden name. I did not find a marriage record so he may have been married elsewhere. Neither was he on the voters' list for 1867.

45. Brian Fallon, "RAAF Career," 12/1/2002, btafallon@yahoo.com.
My RAAF career started in 1953 when I enlisted as an apprentice
spending the first three years in a NSW city by the
odd name of Wagga Wagga. At the end of the first
twelve months basic training I elected to become an
Instrument Fitter which covered a varied range of
equipment such as all the instruments you see in the
cockpit plus navigation euipment, bombsights,
gunsights, oxygen equipment and many other bits and
pieces. In 1959 I managed a posting to the Woomera
Rocket Range in South Australia where I worked on the
Jindivic pilotless target aircraft, some of which were
shot down or crashed but most returned to base. It
was a most enjoyable part of my career seeing surface
to air missiles doing their thing as well as surface
to surface rockets. In 1962 I was selected to be part
of an engineering team to travel overseas to learn
about the Mirage 3O aircraft purchased to replace the
Sabre. I spent four weeks in England where I was
able to arrange to meet up with Aunt Doris and her
family as well as my grandmother, Emily. Sadly I was
only able to see Emily on the one occasion my best
effort to see her a second time thwarted by one of the
London smogs.

From England I went to France for five months then to
New York for two weeks and finally to Ottawa for four
weeks. On return to Australia I was posted to a RAAF
base near Newcastle, NSW my task being to help set up
the maintenance test equipment as well as prepare
training notes and conduct lectures to ground and air
crew. In 1967 I went to Malaysia to set up a
duplicate maintenance facility in preparation for the
arrival of two Mirage Squadrons. Frances was there
and our first two children, Lisa and Neal, were born
in a British Army Hospital on Penang. Life in the
tropics was nice except for a couple of riots where
the Malays cleaned up a lot of the local Chinese which
caused curfews. We weren't allowed to even stand on
our front patio. We returned to Australia in 1969,
Melbourne, where I worked in an Engineering
administraive position until I retired in 1976.

Mary Ann so have been informed tended to births and deaths in the village.

Mary Bass *MAY* have been born in Debenham in 1806 and baptised at the

The two gaps (1838-1846 and 1848-1855) suggest John may have been up to
something in these periods - soldiering, in prison etc. [standard sentence
was 7 years], perhaps worth investigating!

Percy and Fred, Mary Anns Children moved to Coventry in the 30s I believe. I can remember my Nana Anderson telling me that she was evacuated there during the war, to stay with her brothers, and that she hated it that much she had to come home, also at the time she was pregnant with my Dad. Grandad Anderson had to go up to Coventry on the train and collect her, as he had only been to Norwich and Lowestoft should imagine it must have been like travelling to the other side of the world for him!

Auntie Doreen moved to Oswaldtwistle Lancs when she married Uncle Bill (Warnock) I dont know the reasons behind it have never asked her! But think he may have been stationed here during war etc and came from those parts. Also he was Catholic and not sure if Grandad Anderson approved! Her Party was in Liverpool as it was a central place for all her family members to get to. All her children lived at the time within a few hours driving....except us lot from Lowestoft who had to sit on a train for 6 hours!
