  8. WALKER/MARKHAM, Charles Wm b1899 - WW1

    "Oh what a tangled web we weave" ... we poor amateur genealogists don't stand a chance! Which surname do this man's descendants search for? His WW1 service Records (WO 363) are filed under MARKHAM. He believed he was called William Charles MARKHAM, born Berkhamsted. In fact his name was...

  9. FRANCIS, Arthur William b c1889 Suffolk - WW1

    This man enlisted as MARKHAM, which is the surname of his father and unmarried sister, but as there is ONE note that he is "alias A W FRANCIS" - for which there is a suitable birth (Q2 1888 Plomesgate) - I suspect that FRANCIS is correct ... Arthur William FRANCIS (MARKHAM), Greengrocer of...

  14. John Edward C MARJORAM 1898-1918 WW1

    Mis-filed (as MARGROVE) in the WW1 Service Records (WO 363), this man's surname was obviously unknown to the Army clerks - he was enlisted as MARGRAM/MARGROVE and there are many variations in his Records. He served as John, but I am 99% certain that he is JOHN EDWARD C MARJORAM: Enlisted in...
