Individual Note

Wallace THOMAS was born in Brighton, Sussex in 1867, 15 mins after his twin brother Walter. Wallace's father was Walter THOMAS, a Shoemaker, and his mother was Isabella THOMAS nee BECK. Wallace's twin bother Walter died of hydrocephalus in 1869. By 1881 aged 18 Wallace had left Brighton to work as a Waiter in London. In 1890 aged 22 Wallace married Charlotte MARRINER in Holborn, by whom he had one daughter Ellen Maud THOMAS in 1890. Charlotte THOMAS nee MARRINER died in Lambeth in 1897 aged 30. Wallace THOMAS then married a second wife, Alice Henrietta SAXTY in 1897 in Southwark, with whom there was no known issue. Then sometime before 1910, Wallace THOMAS appears to have separated (divorce was not an option for the poor at that time) from Alice THOMAS nee SAXTY (who appears in the 1911 census as a Widow living alone) and assumed the identity of his dead twin, calling himself Walter THOMAS from this time onwards. By 1910 Walter THOMAS had met a widow called Ellen TRICKS nee CLARE (although no marriage record has been found). In 1911 Ellen gave birth to a child at 62 Warren Street, South St Pancras; the father being registered as Walter THOMAS, then a Hotel Kitchen Porter; the mother being registered as Ellen THOMAS late TRICKS formerly CLARE. Walter THOMAS (senior) died in St Pancras in 1912 aged 45, and his partner Ellen died some seven years later in 1919 (orphaning the young child then aged 7).
