1830 - 44

1830: Pigot's trade directory (no Tilbury listed)
BURNHAM, formerly a market town, and giving name to the hundred and parish in which it is situated; is 24 miles from London, 5 from Beaconsfield, 4 from Windsor, and 3 from Maidenhead.
The village itself has no claim to particular notice, but the views and scenery with which it is environed cannot fail to lay hold upon the attention of the traveller; as a place of trade too, it is inconsiderable, and, with the exception of two iron-foundries, possesses nothing of a business-like nature, beyond the common traffic of a country village.
Here is the parish church, and a meeting-house for dissenters; and at Boveney, (a hamlet subject to Burnham parish) is a chapel of ease. The living is a vicarage, in the gift of trustees nominated by the provost and college of Eton; the Rev. Geo. Betbell is the incumbent, and the Rev. Alexander Manning the present curate.
The lord of the manor is John Popple, Esq. of East Burnham. Burnham is surrounded by numerous seats of opulent individuals, and amongst the varying scenery, is presented many elegant mansions, the ruins of Burnham abbey, and the woods called the 'Burnham Beeches', forming prominent features in the general landscape.
There are two fairs in the year, viz. on the 1st May and 2nd October. The entire parish of Burnham, including numerous dependent hamlets, contained, in 1821, 1,918 inhabitants.
POST OFFICE, William Swabey, Post Master. - Letters from all parts arrive from MAIDENHEAD, by foot post, every morning at eight, and are despatched to that town every afternoon at five."

1839: Robson's trade directory (no Tilbury listed)
BURNHAM & Neighbourhood
"... 3 annual fairs, on the 23rd of February, 1st of May, and 2nd of October. St. Peter's church contains several monuments deserving of notice. The parish is extensive and contains 1,930 inhabitants, including the hamlets of East Burnham, Brightwell, Cippenham and Boveney; ...
An ancient moat is supposed to indicate the site of a palace of the Mercian kings at Cippenham. King Henry III there signed the charter of Burnham abbey, of which there are still some remains a little to the south of the Bath road ...
Carriers. - To London, (Austin & Toombs) from the George Inn, to 17 Old Change, Monday & Friday."

1844: Pigot's trade directory (no Tilbury listed)
"BURNHAM, ... two brass and ironfounderies, and a manufactory for agricultural implements ...
The market has long been discontinued; but a fair is still maintained, and held annually on the 2nd October ... Burnham [and] numerous hamlets contained, in 1831, 1,930 inhabitants, and, in 1841, 2,094.
Conveyance by Railway. - The nearest Station is the MAIDENHEAD, about 2 miles distant, on the GREAT WESTERN LINE. Particulars of the various Railways are furnished by the Railway Tables.
Vans. - To LONDON, William Franklin & Son's Vans, from the George, every Monday and Friday forenoon."

April 1916

Frederick John TILBEY - Service No. 74175
Acting Bombardier, Royal Field Artillery, 134th Bty., 32nd Bde.
Died 27 April 1916 age 21
Son of John & Emily TILBEY, of 106, Lancefield St., Queen's Park, Paddington, London. Born at Harmondsworth, Yiewsley, Middx.
Grave/Memorial Reference: VI.A.9. - Bienvillers Military Cemetery (near Arras, Pas de Calais)

On 21 December 2002, a group of Belgian researchers/WW1 archaeologists, found a spoon which bore the service number of Frederick John TILBEY. The spoon was found at the Ypres Salient (on the Boezinge Canal site) where he served in summer 1915 with the 4th Division. Frederick may have been part of an observation and signalling unit reporting on firing range.

Frederick left Ypres to go to the north of France and was killed there about a year later.

The Belgian group did not succeed in contacting members of Frederick's family, but perhaps it may yet happen.

See Guestbook entry of July 2010 for Ann, Henry & George Kemp

"Ozias Kemp ... born 1751 in Whitstable, Kent ... married Martha Hopper on 17 January 1775 at All Saints, Whitstable ... Ozias & Martha had eight children. The sons, William and Ozias ... Began Kemp's biscuits in 1785."
From the Kemp website

Scribbans (cakes) & Kemp (biscuits) merged. How did the SCRIBBANS and the KEMP families become acquainted? Is it just coincidence that all the families (TILBURY, SCRIBBANS, SCALES, DEATH, WARSKETT, KEMP) had links to Bures, Suffolk?

Kate BAILEY age 18 b. Clewer, Berkshire (Domestic Servant)
Charles PARKER (W) age 70 b. Melton Constable, Norfolk (Farm Servant)

At present (May 2005) I have not found the marriage of David WARSKETT & Harriet. Was Edward an honorary 'nephew', or perhaps a great-nephew?

Edward John TILBURY b. 4Q 1872 (Eton 3a/487)
Edward's age in 1881: was the '5' a mis-reading? There does not seem to be another candidate either for the nephew of the WARSKETTs or the husband of Charlotte. His parents may have been Amos (son of John) & Elizabeth Eliza [SCALES].
