The lad left c 1300. JRG obtained the admin on 13th August. The 'Ardeola' departed on the same day.

The Ardeola was a very smart, first-class only [80 passengers], steamship.

Hi Simon

Posh!

Winifred in 1939 was at 120 Ebury St, Westminster - which I think is Belgravia? Maybe not terrifically posh, though, since there's a couple of police constables and a hotel waiter among her co-residents. She's retired and still single, and dies there in 1945. Leaves c 620. Admin to Constance Marion Aldridge, widow.

This seems to be the CM Aldridge who witnesses the Gabe/Jennings marriage and in fact it seems to be JRG's daughter, for Constance marries George Aldridge, merchant, in 1900 aged 19 and her dad is JRG.

How many more offspring of JRG are going to pop up?

Mind you, the Ardeola does sound a bit like a plague ship.

20 February 1919, at sea, Assistant Steward Albert Edward Sugden discharged dead from pneumonia.

27 December 1919, at Funchal, Maderia, First Class Passenger Violet May Hastie discharged dead from pneumonia.

I wonder if, in August, JRG was travelling in his professional capacity, or if he just succumbed to pneumonia and died early the following year.

Regards,

Simon

More Gabes than I can shake a thermometer at.

I wonder if the pneumonia was a complication from the post-War flu epidemic.

I suspect that Constance Marion Aldridge nee Gabe was in fact 'Caroline' from 1891. In 1939 she is living in Hove, birth date Jan 27th 1881. In 1954 she marries Edward S Pratt in Surrey, and dies in Horsham in 1973 leaving 48000.

A good thought. And you're right. It's Caroline M. Gabe [10] in the 1891 Census, which is a mistranscription. She was Constance Marion Gabe, born 1881.

Simon

Hi Simon,

Are you now aware that in November 1888 John Rees Gabe was employed as the resident medical officer of the London Dispensary at 21 Church Street, Spitalfields?
