Hi all.

Another one of mine that I can't find.

Edwin (Edward from 1891 census) registered Waite but used his father's name Bland (his parent's were travellers and didn't marry until later in life so most children registered Waite) b. 1871 Rotherfield Peppard, Oxfordshire. Got him up until 1939 then can't find a death under any combination! I'll keep looking but if anyone comes across anything I'll be happy to know :)

Thanks again!

Also one of his brothers Arthur Waite or Bland b. 1879, Rotherfield Peppard, Oxfordshire - can't see him after 1891.

Thank you for taking a look!

Where was he in 1939, when you last have him, and who was he with?

There is a death in Chesterfield, Derbyshire in 1956 of Edward Bland aged 87, so not too far off with YoB.

IGNORE THIS, I missed the 1939 bit! Doh!

There’s these three possibles up to 1915. None are Oxfordshire but you did mention that family were travellers.

Edward Waite
abt 1872 Jan-Feb-Mar 1908 Teeesdale, Durham

Edwin Waite
abt 1872 Jan-Feb-Mar 1891 Pontypridd, Glamorgan

and one with an extra forename
Charles Edward Bland
abt 1871 Jan-Feb-Mar 1896 Yarmouth, Norfolk

The only other one I can see, closer to where he was in 1939, is 1953 in Ware, Hertfordshire, aged 83

Added - SNAP!

There’s a whole load of Edw* Waite with “sounds like, similar and soundex” options ticked. In the 1916-2007 section on ancestry. Narrowing it down to Oxfordshire and surrounding counties, there was only one after 1939.

Edwin Wait
abt 1869 Apr 1940 Apr-May-Jun Nuneaton, Warwickshire
