  3. I had the following email message from a Clarissa PARKINSON on the 30th July 2007 - I am the Great Grandaughter of Edith Frances Dackcombe b 1874 daughter of Richard Dackombe (b 1841)and Jane Elizabeth Tingley. Edith married my paternal great grandfather Charley James Salter in 1896 -she died in 1898. My Grandfather Henry Charles Salter and his brother William Walter Salter were taken by their grandmother to live on the Isle of Wight where they were brought up. The Salter's being a very old Isle of Wight family.  I hope that I will be able to add more to this chart as a result of this contact
  4. 1896 - 64A Wandsworth Road, Clapham, Surrey
  5. Father - Henry SALTER - Horse Keeper
  6. Further information from Clarissa PARKINGSON states - My Great Grandfather Charley James Salter was born on the Isle of Wight but went to live and work in London sometime between 1891 and 1895. He started  off looking after horses but later in 1901 was shown as an omnibus driver. 
    He married Edith Frances Dackombe 26 Apr 1896 in Clapham. They had two sons Henry Charles Salter b 06 Jul 1896 and William Walter Salter. Edith died of double pneumonia on 16 Oct 1898 at 61 Camilla Road, Bermondsey. Her sister 
    Sarah Jane Wheels was present at her death. The family story goes that she went to her brother's funeral, contacted pneumonia and died two weeks later. Charley James Salter stayed in London and went on the marry again in 1904.  His two children were collected by their grandmother Eliza Reed and taken  back to the Isle of Wight where they were raised. I don't think they had much  contact from their father after that.
    On Charley and Edith Frances's marriage certificate the witnesses are Henry Wheels and Sarah Jane Wheels. Her father is Richard Dackombe (driver). In 1891 she is shown as a Domestic Servant in the parish of St Jude's, St Pancras, London. 11 Liverpool Street age 17 - her sister Florence age 12 is  with her as a nurse girl. In 1881 she is 7 years old living with her parents Richard Dackombe (brewer)  at 2 Colan Grove, Streatham.
    As I mentioned in previous email Richard Dackombe 1841 - 1888 married Jane Elizabeth Tingley 5 Dec 1864. Richard 1841-1888's father was Robert 
    Dackombe 1818 - 1871.
  7. 1891 Census - 11 Liverpool Street, St Jude, St Pancras, London, with her sister Florence with a G CANN, a Butcher, aged 46 a Journeyman Butcher born Islington, London and his family.

The idea of these charts is to give the information that we have found in the research we have done and put together and with the help of many other people who have contacted us over the past thirty odd years we have been researching our family. The idea is that you click on the Chart box in blue to be taken to the next family. There is now a large number of charts to be found and connections can be made to all the main families I am researching. If a chart has a box with the standard background it means that as yet I have not put the Chart on the Web.
To conform to the Data Protection Act all the Charts have been altered to exclude all details for living people other than the name.
