George William Smyth


1884 Oct 30 Born Middlesex on RIC

1884 Jul 12 . Date from death record. Born St Pancras, London but this is a William George rather than George William born Jul/Sep 1884. (RIC have 30 Oct 1884 in Middlesex). I cannot get him in further censuses. His army details show commission in Manchester Regt, moving to Notts & Derby then attached Norfolk Regt

1891 census at 210, Arlington Road, St Pancras, London. If born Oct 1884, then should only be 6 in this census. So not him. The other option is a William G Smyth aged 6 at St Vincent Orphanage Roman Catholic, Teignmouth Road, Tormoham, Torquay, but no place of birth is given. On balance this is a very probable candidate
