      Description: The entry for Sidney Bathurst must be a mistake. I have a copy of the marriage certificate dated 1922 for Florence Ada May Willingale and Sidney Herst Bathurst. Sidney's age is recorded as 21 years and his father is recorded as John Arthur Bathurst.

      A Sydney Erst Bathurst was born in Lambeth in 1903. I think this must be the Sidney Herst who married Florence Ada May Willingale. The age would be about right.

      In the census of 1911 Sydney aged 7 was an inmate in Lambeth Workhouse School together with Roy Bathurst aged 9 and Claud Bathurst aged 11. I'm assuming that the three boys were brothers.

      There is a tree on Ancestry.co.uk that has these three boys with a father named Arthur Frederick Bathurst who was a commercial traveller. I think that this must be the John Arthur Bathurst named as the father of Sidney on the marriage certificate that Joan Vaughan has. Again I have no proof but it's possible that Sidney didn't know his father's true name if he was in the Workhouse School for any length of time, living apart from his parents.

      The other possibility is that he didn't want to name his father, as the reason Sidney & his brothers were in this school was because their father was in prison for fraud. In the census of 1911 Arthur is in H M Prison, Heathfield Road, Wandsworth. He had been sentenced in June 1910 to 12 months imprisonment.

      The tree that I mentioned has Arthur Frederick Bathurst marrying a Mary Jones in Durham in 1898. That's a long way from London but being a commercial traveller he would have moved around the country so it's perfectly possible. This tree also shows a daughter Marjorie Bathurst born in 1906 and on the 1911 census there is a Mary Bathurst who has been married for 13 years (no husband shown) with a daughter Marjorie aged 5.

      I don't know what happened to Arthur or Mary after 1911 but Sydney Erst Bathurst died in Croydon in 1986.
