Back to facts, on 26th May 1888 he married Annette Franks at St. John the Evangelist Church in Upper
St. Leonards, Hastings, Sussex. This is the first record I have which adds the second forename 'David'.
He was listed as a 'manager', aged 25 and a bachelor on the marriage certificate, and Annette was listed
as also aged 25 and a spinster. His father, Charles, is recorded as a builder (although I have no other
evidence of this), while Annette's father George was recorded as a labourer. George David's address at
the time of the marriage is recorded as 77 Netherwood Street, Brondesbury, Middlesex, while Annette
was living at 27 Alexandra Terrace, St Leonards.
Their first daughter Ada was born while they were living at Maclise Road, near Kensington Olympia. Elsie
was born at St Leonards, where Annette parents came from, but Lloyd was born back at Maclise Road.
Throughout this time George was described as a 'coffee house manager'.
By 1906 they had bought a 'Dining Rooms' business with accommodation above in Shepherds Bush Road.
In 1930 he decided to retire, sold the business and moved to a house in Old Oak Road, Acton, which they had taken on a 99 year lease.
I have more facts to put in here when I get time!
George died on 29th January 1946. Annette died two weeks after achieving her hundredth birthday!
