Jump to: navigation, search

1899 Born in Stoke Newington; his mother Selina Parker had been a servant in the household of Thomas Hurst Hodgson in 1891[1]

1901 Shown as son, living in North Hackney with Thomas Parker, head of the household, a land surveyor, (b.1872 Newington) and his wife Selina (b.1876 Hitchin, Selina Parker, daughter of Thomas Parker)[2]

1911 Raymond William Parker was at school in Beccles, the same school as his brother Plessey Parker[3] His mother was living with a Thomas Parker (age 50) born in Blyth; 2 of her 4 children were still living.

1922 Raymond William Seymour Parker married Vernice Courier[4]

possibly the same as Raymond W S Parker who died in Leeds in 1965[5]

NB A tree on Ancestry suggests that Raymond Parker's father was in fact Thomas Emanuel Hurst Hodgson - however this does not explain 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 was Selina's brother, also Thomas Parker, born c.1873, and thus probably not Raymond's father.
