An update on the Rev Thomas Whitehouse of Baldock (and elsewhere)

Help Desk
Gail has provided a correction to Thomas's marriage details and mentions that his son Cyril (who was born in Baldock) went to Malaysia. I have checked on Ancestry and it is possible that Cyril "run away to sea" at the age of 15. ... Anastasia provides more information on Cyril and I suggest the most likely death certificate for Thomas's wife Elizabeth Ann Whitehouse.

  1. The boat may have sailed from Buenos Aires but your passenger boarded in Lisbon. In 1935 he boarded at Singapore. The Outgoing Passengers List is informative as Cyril Thomas De Burgh Whitehouse, planter, bound for Singapore and resident of FMS (Federated Malay States) was accompanied by his wife Martha Eleanor and daughter Cicely, aged 1. He is listed as Lt Commander in the Royal Indian Naval Reserve during WW2.
