What Year Was Rostron Married

Discussion in 'Captain Arthur Rostron' started by Richard A. Krebes, Jan 11, 2009.

  1. I understand the name of Arthur Rostron's wife was Ethel Minnie Rostron.
    What year were they married? And did they have any kids?
    Thanks to all who can help with this query of mine.
     
  2. An "Arthur Henry Rostron" got married in the 4th quarter of 1899 in Leigh. I don't know if this is the right one though. You can order his marriage certificate from officialdom here in the UK.
     
  3. Richard - You will find the answers to your questions in the following extract from the Southampton Echo:

    From The Southern Evening Echo, Southampton, Tuesday, November 5th 1940


    THE News of the death of Captain Sir Arthur Rostron, K.B.E., R.N.R., a famous sea commander, will occasion deep regret among a very wide circle of friends, and particularly among the shipping community.
    Sir Arthur, who home was at Holmcroft, West End, Southampton, died yesterday at the Cottage Hospital, Chippenham. He and Lady Rostron had been staying near their daughter, Mrs. J. F. Howman of Calne, and they had arranged to return to Holmcroft, last week, but on Monday, Sir Arthur developed gastric influenza. Pneumonia supervened, with fatal results.

    INTEREST IN THE LEGION
    Since is retirement from the sea, Sir Arthur had taken a keen interest in various aspects of life in Southampton and district, and he was a keen worker for the British Legion, in which he held various offices.
    Sir Arthur was one of the keenest members of the Southampton Master Mariners' Club, and at one time he was a very regular attendant at the weekly luncheons. He was a past-captain of the club. The clubroom bears evidence of his goodwill, for he presented pictures, books and nautical instruments which are of the greatest interest to all connected with the sea and ships.
    The greatest sympathy is extended to the widow, daughter, and three sons. The funeral service will take place at West End Parish Church on Thursday . . . .

    Cheers Brian

    If he was married at Leigh in 1899, then it was to Ethel Minnie Stothert.
     
  5. Arthur Henry Rostron married Ethel Minnie Stothert on 14 Sep 1899. They had at least two children - Harry Maxwell and Margaret E.
