George Robinson 1872 -1939


George Thomas Robinson. Sep. Born 6/7/1872 4a.135 Ongar. -1939. Parents Francis Robinson & Elizabeth Rousell .Born in Stanford Rivers [ according to 1881C, but 1891C,1901C & 1911C state Hatfield but BMD entry is Ongar, so Stanford Rivers must be correct: if Hatfield, would state Dunmow] , no baptism found.The family moved to Hatfield Broad Oak when he was a baby, and then to Clapham by the time he was 8.

1881C.Aged 8,living at Broomfield Road,Clapham, with father Francis,stableman,& siblings mother missing or omitted!


1890. His father Francis Robinson dies

1891C, aged 18, a Groom, living in 2 rooms at 155 Park Road, Clapham, with his mother and younger brother Robert, 15, paralysed from childhood.


1896. He marries in Lambeth, Dec 1896 1d.916 Alice Thirza Holden. Marriage probably a civil one, as no church record on Alice born Wandsworth 1877.

Their children were:

1901C, George T.Robinson, 28, b. Hatfield?!, Hackney carriage driver-groom, is living 111 Clapham Park Road with Alice T.Robinson 24, b. Clapham, Charles E.Robinson 3 b. Clapham and George T.Robinson 8mths b. Clapham. . .. . . .

Cannot find in London Electoral Registers.


These descendants are probably my only chance of this Robinson branch continuing to 2008.

1939 Register . George T Robinson, born 6/7/1872, horsekeeper, disabled through illness, was living 74 Gilbey Road, Wandsworth, with Alice T Robinson, born 12/2/1877. Plus one closed record . Thus living in the same house as in 1911

1939 Death of a George T. Robinson in Wandsworth in 1939, est. age 65 could well be him.
