Nothing known of Thomas,but I am sure my grandfather Mathew Harry Embley (Circa 1860/1926-27)must have had a numnber of relatives somewhere!
Thought to be of Scots origin,the family lived at 111,Regents Park Rd. St.Pancras, London around 1896 & he was Superintendant of an Industrial School.By 1901 he was a Senior Tutor at the Greenwich Naval College.
In the early 1900's he was appointed Principal of the first Reform School for Boys in the Argentine and the family lived in some splendour in Buenos Aeres. They returnned to England about 1913/14 and he was a Home Office Official based in the Midlands and lived in Yardley Wood, B'ham.
There were three sons -- George - RN Captain killed early in 1914/18 war -- William - RNVR Officer ,then 1920's to 1940's Captain of a steamship up the Irrawaddy river (Rangoon to Mandalay) -- Maurice - Captaln,Delhi Fire Service who died of Malaria in 1930.Only daughter was Marjorie, my mother, who married Percy Hill (five years in the Army and did not even make Lance Corporal!)Grandfather did not approve (probably right!)and refused to speak to her again!
Hence I never met any of the Embley family and if any of the above rings a bell would be delighted to hear from you.
