1887. Edward Arthur Suckling was the first son born to Arthur Sucking and Louisa Parchment Born 14/7/1887, christened Barnsbury St Andrew Islingon on 7/8/1887



His siblings were:

London City & siblings Emily Louisa 20, housemaid, Clarence William 15, learning at hairdressers, Sydney Harold 8, all children b. Islington except Sydney b. Walthamstow. Family living in Westhill Road, South Wonston, Mirkeldewer, Hants [Winchester district] in 4 rooms. An Albert Suckling, 19, servant, hairdresser b.Barnsbury?, London, living at a hairdressers[Taylor] at 80, High St.,Horsey, London.


1916 ....Two of his brothers were killed 1916, within a month of each other, on the Somme I would have thought he must also have served in this war: below is what is almost certainly his medal card, but no absolute proof.


In 1916 his parents,Arthur & Louisa Suckling, were living at 2, Moss Villas, Elmhurst Rd., Langley, Bucks.

1931. Edward A Suckling probably marries Dorothy S Tweed Jun 1931 Braintree.

1931. This Edward A Suckling & Dorothy have just one child, Rita D. Suckling Dec 1931 Braintree

His nephew, John Suckling, told his daughter Lauren that Edward went to Scotland and was a Church Minister.

1950. He was the informant on the 12/12/1950 d.c. of his father, Albert Suckling. His address then was St.Ranans', Panpret Road (Spelling> unsure) Elgin, Morayshire. In 2007 Lauren sought help on Genweb Scotland and was told the address was St. Ronans Pansport Road ELGIN IV30 1HE. "There does not seem to have been a Church St Ranans or St Ronans in> Elgin..The road in question seems to have been Pansport Road, and St Ronans' could have been a house address.". Lauren also states her father "never met his Uncle Edward so is unable to help". Does this rule out Edward A Suckling marrying 1931 Braintree?

1963. I think Lauren must have once told me he, Edward Suckling, died in Scotland ~1963 [ but says 1953 on Gen Web!] , but no proof

Louisa Suckling[ nee Parchment] 1860-.... with husband Arthur and son Sid, probably c 1950, probably Coggeshall Rd., Braintree.
