Trying to find Charley Rabjohns

Postby phsvm » Sat Nov 25, 2017 11:13 am

Can anyone have more luck in finding Charley Rabjohns than I've so far had?

Born in Hemyock, Devon in 1888 his birth is registered in Wellington, Somerset. The family lived in West Buckland, Somerset - parents John and Julia and various siblings.

I can trace Charley on the 1891 and 1901 census but not on the 1911 census. He next turns up in 1918 in Oxford where he marries Annie Gardener. They seem to be missing from the 1939 register as well although Charley is still in Oxfordshire in 1963 when he marries his second wife Annie Roberts.

I'm trying to find him on both the 1911 census and the 1939 register.

Isn't is always the way? The minute you ask a question you solve it yourself!

Although in this case I've only half solved it. I've found Charley on the 1911 census (in Compton, Berkshire) but not on the 1939 register so if anyone can help with that I'd be very grateful.

Thanks Ianbee.

I had all the other bits (and that he married a second time - to another Annie!) but I just couldn't find him in 1939.

Yes, that is his probate. I drive past his old home very regularly but didn't know it was where he lived until now.

The final piece of the puzzle - except for tracing some decendants!
