19 EDWARD DESPARD 1874-1918

Born 16/07/1874 in Kilmalogue, Queens County.
His father registered his birth on 16/09/1874

There is an inscription dated 24th January 1882 in a book of ‘morality’ stories which appears to have been presented to Edward at Portarlington Methodist Sunday School. In the back he has written his address and added two initials to his name.
Edward J S Despard.
Henry Street Tullamore Kings County Ireland

The family had told me that his name was Edward John Smith Despard (? His maternal grandfather’s name)

The family say that Edward went to work in his mother’s family’s French polishing business in Cork This would have been around 1900 and it is conceivable that the parents relocated to Cork after his father retired from the RIC in Kings County but there is no evidence that either had previous connections with Cork.
It is then said that Edward went on business to the family home of the Cunninghams (tea tasters) in County Monaghan where he met their governess Letitia Gillis.

Edward and Letitia were married in at

Edward then took a job as a salesman with Olivetti typewriters in Belfast. (The 1901 census lists an Edward J Despard as head of household at Agencourt Avenue Belfast) Their three eldest children were born there. The Belfast address was said by the family to be Ryleston Terrace.

His work took him to London and it is suggested that the family moved between Belfast and London on more than one occasion. They lived in Plumstead at one point. By 1906 he was working for Remingtons in East Ham where the two younger children were born.

Edward David Gillis 21 09 1902
Doris Jeanette Gillis 16 06 1904
Helen Valentine Gillis 14 02 1906
William George Faulkner 22 03 1908
Eileen Letitia 16 01 1910
Then a miscarriage

It is said that Letitia’s ill-health prompted a move out of the city to Essex. They lived in Pitsea and by 1914, they were renting Wardens Farmhouse in Althorne near Burnham on Crouch and Edward went to work in a munitions factory.

Edward, who was said to have been a drinker, died of TB (?caught from a cow on the farm?) aged 42 on 25/01/1918 and was buried in Althorne Church.
Letitia subsequently kept/worked in a tobacconist shop in Althorne. She had a stroke in the mid 1930s (?in Devon) and subsequently lived with Rex in Burnham until WW2. She continued to live with various of her children until her death in Doris’ care on 21/01/1951. She is also buried at Althorne.
