Jump to: navigation, search

1903 Birth as Plessey Camoys S. Parker at Holborn[1]. Brother of Raymond Parker. Their mother Selina Parker had been a servant in the household of Thomas Hurst Hodgson in 1891[2]

1911 At school in Beccles[3]. His mother was living with a Thomas Parker (age 50) born in Blyth; 2 of her 4 children were still living.

1939 Marriage to Rose E. Jennings at Islington

1956 Q2. Death of Plessey Camoyse Seymour Parker (aka Frank Leslie) aged 52 at Islington[4]

NB A tree on Ancestry suggests Plessey's mother was Selina (b.1876 Hitchin, Selina Parker, daughter of Thomas Parker) and that his father was in fact Thomas Emanuel Hurst Hodgson; however this does not explain the identity of the Thomas Parker living with Selina in Hackney in 1901, as Thomas Hodgson was recorded in the Bedford census in 1901. Another explanation could be that this man living with Selina in 1901 was her brother, also Thomas Parker, born c.1873, and thus not Raymond or Plessey's father.
