Edith Florence Peacock is the grandmother of Bill Burgar, the author of this work.
She was born in 1886 in Chelsea, London.
The Birth Certificate 25 states:
Edith Florence Peacock, Girl, born 2nd July 1886, daughter of Charles Peacock, Brewer's Labourer, and Jane Eliza Peacock, formerly Webster, of 7 Bywater Street, Chelsea. The Birth was registered in the Registration District of Chelsea, sub-district of Chelsea North West, Middx by Charles Peacock, Father, on the 10th August 1886.
She married in 1911. The
Civil Registration of marriage reference is Jun 1911 V 1D p 855 - in
Edith Florence Peacock and William Edward Burgar were married on 16 April 1911 in Christ Church, Battersea, London.25 The Marriage Register of Christchurch, Battersea, and the Civil Marriage Certificate ahev the same information, i.e.
William Ernest Burgar, aged 30, Bachelor, Labourer of 23 Afgan Road, Battersea
His father was Alfred Burgar, Fishmonger, and her
father was Charles William Peacock (deceased), brewer.
William E. Burgar seems to be unsure what the E. in his second name stood for. Different records suggest it was Edward or Edwin or Ernest.
The identity of the witness, A. M. Burgar, is unclear. None of the Burgar family have those initials. It is possibly his brother, Alfred William Burgar.
Edith Florence Peacock and William Edward Burgar had five children.
Unfortunately, Edith was widowed when she was in her late 30s. She thus had to bring up 5 children by herself and had a really tough life. There is a description of her in the memoirs of her daughter-in-law, Lily (Bond) Burgar.
