  • Notes 
    • He ran off with Bessie Beer, the widow of a police constable named George William Standgroom who had died in 1904 aged only 36. They moved to Gloucester, presumably to escape the wrath of his abandoned wife. He adopted Bessie's three children and they had a further three of their own. They married in 1918 following the death of his wife. [12]
