    Default George Augustus Solly (1872-1964)

    Does anybody know anything about my great grandfather? This is what I know...

    He was born in 1872, the birth was registered in Shoreditch, London.

    In the 1891 census, age 19, he is listed as a print compositor boarding with the Long family in Islington.

    Also in 1891, and again in Islington, there is a record of a marriage.

    In 1911, when he was 39, my grandfather Francis George Solly was born in Edmonton.

    Finally in 1964 he died in Maidenhead. As a small child I remember visiting him at a nursing home there just prior to his death.

    Does anyone have any further information that might help me out of the dead end I've reached whilst trying to trace this side of my family?

    Thanks in advance,

    Bob

    Well, I managed to get hold of a birth certificate for my great grandfather which led me to a good deal more information. Now I'm stuck back in the early 19th century in Sandwich, Kent. But hopefully this is an area where someone here can give me a few pointers.

    George Augustus was the second child of Charles Solly (born ca 1849 Sandwich, Kent, died May 1920) and Jessie Annie Matilda Allen of Islington, London. In total it appears that Charles and Jessie had ten children the majority of which which were born in the Islington area of North London.

    From census details it seems that that Charles was the sixth child of George Solly (born ca 1809, Sandwich, Kent) and Sarah M Coleman (also of Sandwich).

    And that's where this particular branch of my family tree ends at the moment. I have some details about the various brothers and sisters of George Augustus and Charles Solly but nothing of George and Sarah. Does anyone out there know anything more?

    I have a record of George Solly marrying Sarah - but her name has been given as Mission on 8 May 1842 in Stepney. Charkes George is the only son I have a record of but he has been recorded as having 8 children - but it does not include George Augustus.

    Could you send me brief details of the children you have.

    Regards

    the Charles Solly married to Jessie Annie Matilda Allen was my paternal great grandfather and your listing has filled in some of my missing links in my tree. Any help I can give?
