    Default MACHENT George H, b c1887, Sheffield - WW1

    Filed as MARCHANT in the WW1 Service Records (WO 363):

    George Henry MACHENT (or is it?
    He married ADA GRANTHAM at St Silas Church, Sheffield on 8 June 1912. GRO Index shows 2 surnames: MACHENT & MAEHENT.

    His Service Record shows several variations: MACHANT/MACHENT/MARCHANT.
    He was called up 10 Dec 1915, declaring age 28y 5m, born Sheffield.
    Served with the West Yorkshires (79619) & was later transferred to the Yorks & Lancs (56050).
    Discharged 1919.
    His medal is engraved: MACHENT, G H, Pte 79619, 11/West Yorkshire Regt.

    I cannot find a birth for a George Henry in the West Riding. Perhaps he is just GEORGE? (Although he married as George H). No Sheffield births for any of the surname variations.

    There is another birth same 1/4 and year for a George Henry with mother's maiden name Robinson but that appears to be to parents George Henry P Machin and Lily Robinson married Sheffield June 1/4 1887.
