    Default HENNIKER, Norman Christian c1896 Kent - WW1

    I suspect that this man enlisted under the surname of CLARKE, and so is "mis-filed" in the WW1 Service Records (WO 363). (He is the only man to be born "Norman Christian" between 1890 & 1899, and the name HENNIKER does sound slightly Germanic ...). I may be wrong - it has been known to happen!

    Norman Christian enlisted (as CLARKE) on 25 May 1915, claiming age 20y, born Margate. He served with the ASC (Regt No 100466) until discharge in 1919.

    Home address: Norfolk Road, Cliftonville, Margate.
    Mother: Mary I or J.

    On the GRO index his mother's maiden name is Clarke but the only marriage I can see is a James Frederick Henniker to a Charlotte Barty Clarke 1896 Thanet.

    Mother Mary J lodging house keeper Widow. Age 60 married 40 years. 3 children 1 died 2 living. Cant find them in 1901 yet but in 1891 living in Greenwich. Husband Edmond F Clarke. A Clerk born london. Amys birth is for MMN Wollf. Many times back then mothers took their childrens kids on as their own, because well i suppose she could have had a child at 46. Edmond died june 1899 in kent Bridge reg. dist. Thats all i can find for now.
