  • Notes 
    • EDITH ELLEN. Edie, as a young woman, was expected to stay at home and look after her father and mother and, although she must have had many suitors, they were duly frightened off, so that she did not marry until 1924 when she was 56 and after her mother's death in 1923. Edward TOM had secretly courted her for about three years and most certainly would have been unwelcome at her mother's house, as he was an ardent socialist and of Cornish farming stock, but at that time he was serving in the Navy.

      Her husband died in about 1947 (NSC :.. it was 1953) and she lived alone for many years, and when she was over 90, if she felt that her gardener was not doing the job as well as it should be done, she dug her garden herself. After an unfortunate accident, she died on the 14th October 1965 aged 98. Edie was a very kind and generous person, always making her visitors most welcome at any time and, although she married too late to have children, she always enjoyed having her grand nephews and nieces visiting her.

      2015 : Alan Cawthorne recalls :
      1. that Aunt Edie and husband Edward Tom lived in a house called Ulfcombe in Sanderstead, Surrey.
      2. that he received a few hundred pounds in Aunt Edie's Will, with which he bought a washing machine. Edith Ellen Tom's Will (probate 3 Dec 1965) was £12,013. Address given as 4 Birdhurst Road, South Croydon. Although Edie's husband is referred to by Clement as "Edward" the marriage notice says Nicholas E Tom.
