My husband is the son of Horace Caudell who was the brother of Simones Gt Grandmother Kate, my sister-in-law remembers Kate and other members of the family including William and Harriet.Joyce tells me William was a very dark little man, with dark eyes and rather given to rages. Harriet was a big lady and according to Joyce Very placid.I have a photo of them and also Williams parents, Charles and Emma. I think William looked like his mother.
Williams sons did not go to the U.S. I will ask what Alfred and Arthur did for a living. Horace and Austin (both I seem to remember hearing werenamed after local gentry)started as footmen. Albert Moger husband of his sister taught Horace to plaster, he in turn taught Austin and they stayed in that trade for the rest of their working life.Austins two remaining sons Maurice and Norman worked with him. The elder boy Aubrey was sent into the mines as a Bevin Boy, married and stayed after the war and was killed in a mining accident, leaving one daughter.Norman died a few years back also leaving a daughter.Maurice is married with no children and lives in Englefield Green.Their mother Lou only died a short while ago
The name Blakeney came into the family with the marriage of William Caudell to Ann Blakeney at St Giles Reading in Nov 1732.
Who is Doris Goode, she is my husbands cousin the daughter of Alfred, brother of Kate.Doris and her husband have done a lot of research into the family, I am sure some of you have been in contact with her.
Ernest was always known as Toot Or Toots, his twin sister Caroline as Madge,Austins son Maurice we call Charlie, I have added this in case these name crop up and cause confusion.
We have various bits and pieces of information about the family, apprentice details, money left in the Bank of England, the Caudell who was a church warden , I beieve he played the organ, and family anecdotes.Uncle Toots told me the cottage his grandparents lived in in W-St-L was called Rose Cottage and was next to the church. We think it it now two cottages made into one.
I have tried a number of times to post a message without success, I' m not very good with computers.
With regards to all the Caudell Family
