Henry John Newing Crole


1895 Aug 1. Born Thanet. 1901 and 1911 census show him as adopted son of Daniel and Hannah Newing of Ramsgate. Two Ancestry trees show parents as Thomas Henry CROLE and Ada PARSONS and that he married Emily Lillian FARNELL in 1913 in Thanet. Daniel had previously been an Upholsterer. He had married Hannah Elizabeth Atkins in 1891, and she was his second wife. I can find no record of Thomas Henry Crole marrying Ada Parsons, but the children are all registered as Crole
