Hi Vicky,Brian, and Craig,
I recently sent my research on Edward James William Rogers and his cousin Edward Henry Bagley to the Newham Recorder and it was published on the centre pages. Date: 8th October 2003, edition. The photographs of the two men from the East Ham Echo of 1912 were included.
Edward JW Rogers, was born on the 9th September 1880, to Robert James Rogers and wife Priscilla Susannah Rogers (nee Bagley). Robert was a bricklayer and the family lived at 3 Robert Street, North Woolwich. Edward J.W. was baptized on 3rd November at St John the Evangelist, Nth Woolwich. He was one of many children born to the couple. By 1881, the family lived at 3 Elizabeth Terrace.
By 1891, they lived at 18 Robert Street, Nth Woolwich. And Edward J.W. went to school in the area. By the 1901 census, Edward J.W. had left the area and was living in Bootle, Lancashire. He worked as a ship's storekeeper, and married on the 30th June 1901 to Elizabeth Matthews while living at 22 Kenilworth Street, Bootle. They went on to have the 3 children mentioned above. He served on the Oceanic, Olympic, before Titanic.
