Did You Know?

  • The informant on Thomas Shorter's death certificate is 'A. Shorter Daughter'. He had two daughters with the initial A, Ann Shorter and Amelia Shorter.
  • Thomas Shorter's 1885 death certificate states that he was 56 years old, but this was the same age he had given in the census four years earlier so I am confident it is a mistake on the certificate.
  • Although they were both born in Foots Cray, Kent, Thomas Shorter and his sister Emma Shorter both married their spouses at St Giles, Camberwell.
  • Although Thomas Shorter was baptised as Samuel Thomas, he seems to have gone by his middle name for most of his life.
