Thomas MARTIN (c. 1859- )

1. Thomas Charles MARTIN, son of James MARTIN (c. 1807- ) and Maria UNK (c. 1816- ), was born circa 1859 in Marylebone, London. He was a Printer, Bookbinder, Stationer. He appeared in the census. He celebrated his Bar Mitzvah. He married Margaret FRENCH.

 

Thomas Charles was born about 27 years after his eldest sibling, and about 14 years after the next youngest: clearly a "mistake"??!!

In the 1861 census gives his age as 12. Most of his elder siblings were working for his father's printing business, with the exception of his (then) 18 year-old sister Caroline, who is listed as a teacher. It is presumably his father's business which he eventually takes over.

In the 1891 census Thomas C Martin was living with his wife and daughter Daisy at 21 Streatley (?) Road, Willesden, London. Under occupation he is listed as an employer, working as a printer, bookbinder and stationer. They lived with one servant. In the 1901 census they lived at the same address and all three of their children had been born.

 

Margaret FRENCH and Thomas Charles MARTIN had the following children:

 

Daisy MARTIN (c. 1888- ). Daisy was born circa 1888 in Marylebone. She was a Music Hall Artiste.

Charlie James MARTIN (c. 1892- ). Charlie was born circa 1892 in Brondesbury. He was a Civil Servant.

Violet Valentine MARTIN (1899-1985). Violet was born on 14 February 1899 in Brondesbury (Birth registered in Hendon district). She was a Music Hall Artiste. She died in January 1985 in Hove, Sussex.

Second Generation

2. James MARTIN was born circa 1807 in St. Pancras, Middlesex. He was a Printer & Stationer. He appeared in the census. He celebrated his Bar Mitzvah. He married Maria UNK.

 

In the 1861 census the family were living at 10 Lisson Grove (possibly the transcribed entry from the 1881 census has been misread - this needs to be revisited). Address in 1881: 18 Lisson Grove, St Marylebone, London,

He was a "Printer Stationer Employing 11 men 5 boys 2 women 3 girls"
In 1881 he was a "Master printer & bookbinder, employing at present 17 men, 4 boys and 4 females".



The image of James Martin may possibly of his son Thomas instead, but seems not to resemble the latter. On that basis it has been surmised to be an image of James Martin, without certainty.

 

3. Maria UNK was born circa 1816 in Marylebone, London. She and James MARTIN had the following children:
