    Default RACHEL EVE SIMMONDS- HEINRICH KNOBLAUCH

    This new thread links to an earlier thread Judah Lee Simmonds-Maria Solomon and posts data on Rachel Eve Simmonds and her marriage to Heinrich Knoblauch.
    I can't locate a GRO Birth Record Index for Rachel using a combination of names but she was born about 1858 the daughter of Judah Lee Simmonds and Maria Solomon.
    The GRO Marriage Index shows- Rachel Eve Simmonds- Heinrich Knoblauch Sept qtr 1893 Lambeth 1d 945
    The GRO Death Index Records show- Rachel E Knoblauch age 89 June qtr 1947 N Cotswold 7b 474
    GRO Death Index Record- June qtr 1934 Camberwell 1d 639 Heinrich Knoblauch

    1911 Census (Crown Copyright,TNA)
    RG14 2122
    29 St.Julians Farm Road West Norwood SE
    Heinrich Knoblauch H M 61 married 17 years 2 children both alive Agent to Importer of Japanese Goods b Wurtenberg Germany Nationality German
    Rachel wife 53 b London
    Winifred dau 16 b London

    Default CECIL KNOBLAUCH AKA CLIFFORD KENNEDY

    The following post is an update on Cecil Henry Adolphus KNOBLAUCH aka CLIFFORD KENNEDY:
    Cecil Knoblauch 1897-1990 was baptised at the age of 13 in 1911- Cecil Henry Adolphus Knoblauch b 31 May 1897 parents Henry Knoblauch Merchant and Rachel 29 St Julian's Farm Road
    Baptism 22 May 1911 St.Peter Streatham

    The UK Incoming Passenger Lists show Cecil Knoblauch on the Empress of Australia Port of Arrival Southampton 1931 Musician on board the ship - wife Isobel M Knoblauch 36a Hitherley Grove Westbourne Cresc London

    The Free BMD Marriages indicate that Cecil in 1922 was using both surnames Knoblauch and Kennedy as well as different first names Cecil and Clifford. In addition, Isobel appears to have done the same:
    GRO Marriage Index Cecil H A Knoblauch Dec qtr 1922 Lambeth 1d 726- Gladys JACKSON Nb The same index reference is also for Clifford KENNEDY- Isobel MARDEN

    The clue to this change of name for Cecil can be seen in the inquest into the death of his mother Rachel see 5 April 1947 Cheltenham Chronicle where Cecil stated that he was " now known as Cecil Kennedy"

    Cecil aka Clifford re- married in 1971 and the Marriage Index records both names of Knoblauch and Kennedy:
    GRO Index Dec qtr 1971 Oxford 6b 2322
    Cecil H A Knoblauch and Clifford Kennedy to Millicent S COLLINS

    GRO Death Index
    Clifford KENNEDY age 93 died Dec qtr 1990 Oxfordshire 20 2821 born 31 May 1897

    I cannot confirm any births of children from the first marriage. There is a Isabel M KNOBLICH and an Ethel KNOBLICH Detroit Border Crossings Passenger and Crew Lists London to Detroit and then to Chicago Pan American Airways Arrival 27 August 1956 but I cannot confirm that this Isabel is the wife of Cecil aka Clifford.
